Comment: Lectures are essentially worthless, never went to his office hours. Midterms were easy to fair, a little fast paced though. Oh and he usually has an all or nothing multiple choice question on them that creates a large standard deviation. Final was cumulative and fair but lots of typos/errors in the problems which was annoying. All HW involves matlab but you only have to know how to use one function for the exams. Skip lecture skim/read book, do HW, and go to GSI's disc/OH if they are any good.

Comment: Frenklach is a great professor. He really wants you to KNOW thermodynamics and I learned a ton. If you have a chance to take thermo with Frenklach do it. Things to know: No cheat sheets on exams. His lectures aren't helpful if you just write down what is on the board, because it's not much so comment your notes as much as possible. Success in this class is understanding, not memorizing, thermodynamic laws, devices, and cycles. He likes MATLAB so assignments focus on that and we used MATLAB on exams.
