Review #1 / Course: CE 3400 / Instructor: MOORTHY S
Took this in Spring 2011 and made a C. It's definitely easier than a class like Statics or Physics 2102, but still harder than something like Calculus 2. The first half of the semester I only went to class about half of the time and this really hurt me on the first two tests (on which I made around 50s). I then started going to class every day and made A's on the third exam and final, but this still only brought my grade up to a C. So try going to class as much as possible. Also, definitely attend the reviews. Moorthy basically tells you what type of problems will be on the exam and what to study and what not to study.

Not too hard of a class. Moorthy is difficult to understand but posts his notes on Moodle before class. Tests were really straight forward.
