There were about 3 homework assignments and those homework even though at first seemed intimidating but it's actually not that bad. Those homework actually helps prepare freshmen engineers to know what's coming in future upper div engineer course. I mean he took one of the generation process of Chem E 100 and do pretty much all the messy stuff and then give it to us. Once you get the homework and the point, it's not that bad.
Final Grade: A- --> this is because I did not spend so much time on the homework. All my friends got A and A+ so you should be fine if you do the first and second homework well.
The final is kinda confusing because it was the process generation worksheet without all the excel file but then I don't think it really matters so yeah.

Look, Vasilios is a nice guy. He's pretty funny, and his lectures are entertaining, but most of the time you're just copying down needless notation. I like his sass. The class is curved well, and the midterm averaged a 60 (even though it's open book open note and 40 points of it were basically copy paste from the HW, so it was pretty chill). However, I don't recommend him at all. We were saved by our TA Kelly, who made things semi-understandable. Otherwise, go to Vasilios for help on HW and you're out of luck. He just makes everything way too mathematical and confusing. We're chemical engineers, not mathematicians! No need to make things so complex. Often, he pulls problems form the book, and I look at his solutions and compare them to book solutions. There's just no need for so much math notation.

Also, Homeworks are absolutely brutal. 150+ pages throughout the quarter of typed equations and formulas for this class. Also, the final was destructive. You don't need to study for the final because it won't help you anyway. He gives an "easy", a "thinking" and a "tedious" problem on each exam. The easy and thinking problem on the final were fine, but that tedious problem was soooooo long. I used 15 pages on that final (only front side but still - it took forever).

Overall, you can't avoid him, so just enjoy the ride! He's funny, I always enjoyed lecture, the homework sucks and is infinitely confusing and tedious, and the exams will leave you feeling empty inside. But then you get an A+ and it's all okay :)

Also, he took two extra weeks past the deadline to put in grades, so just a heads up. Overall, I'll give him a 3 rating. Not very clear, very difficult class, not very helpful, but at least it was fun. I also feel pretty solid on the material I learned from his class (solely because I had to teach myself a lot of it, and the material is pretty fun and interesting).

Vasilios is the best! He's a cool professor who knows his stuff. Mercedes gave him a free Merc Fuel Cell car for something he did for them. He's really chill and there's an 80% chance you'll end up with an A.
