The key thing in the class is to do the homework. If you do you will pass. For the exams re-do the homework question that seem tough and try to get old finals. He does curve. And for the final project work on your own. He will give you a -100 if he catches you copying.

Coursework is not difficult but extremely time consuming. Do all homework as he collects them randomly. Present as many homeworks as you can (it boosts your grade). Projects are difficult and does not explain how to use MATLAB. Tests average are relatively low but he there is a huge curve. If you put in the work, you will get a good grade.

One of the toughest class in the ME curriculum. So many methods and iterations. After every exam, i felt very exhausted, my fingers were numb and my calculator ran out of battery. He hands out way too many hws and programing assignments. I had the TA for the lab and for every lab session we had quiz. just prepare to do lot of work.

Whatever you heard about Prof. Ganatos is probably true; a lot of Homework, Hard test, and a huge curve on the grade. The key to getting a good grade is to do all the homework and get a hold of previous exams. Study the previous exams inside and out and your exam will be easy. 3 exam questions are similar to previous exams and a fourth from the

DO THE HOMEWORK. You don't want to cram anything in that class. Leave at least 4 hours a week for homework, and another 2-3 for the weekly project assignment. He is a nice guy, especially if you go to him during office hours.
