I did start out a little late with the review course, and I had to catch up, but I was able to stay on target week after week after that. On the exam, I found that I didn't use the DTEC as much as the PRNs, however both were useful. All in all, having the information organized was a great help!
I told my uncle who is an ME NC State grad about the review course I was taking and mentioned Dr. Tom. He said that Dr. Tom taught him Statics during his time at school in the mid to late 1980's, and that I should do very well, given his insistence about always using units to help solve problems. I found that Dr. Tom's explanation and break down of the conversions was also helpful in learning how to work through the problems.
Overall, going into the April exam I felt very much more prepared than the first time taking it in October. In fact, the April exam seemed "easier," which I can accredit to using Dr. Tom's review course. Dr. Tom, thank you for your course and the passion that you display while teaching it."
