Most Helpful Review

So I read this Bruin walk and thought to myself, "I have to take 103 now or else, so I'm just gonna man up and study my ass off and get an A." not the greatest idea....1. Owen is an awful lecturer. I definitely could not stay focused in class. He just rambles...2. The tests are haarrrrd. Similar to homework, but very hard. 3. He always throws screwballs at you on tests. Ex: Manometer on flowing fluid problem, with manometer fluid density less than the flowing fluid - causes manometer to operate oppositely. This caused me to freak out not understanding why I had to take a square root of a negative number and waste 30min on my midterm. The finals had similar screwballs - I am not going to list them now, but its really annoying and doesn't test knowledge of material but wittiness. DONT TAKE HIM.

Professor Taghavi had crazy hard tests. The median on the first midterm was 62 and on the second was a 71. The paper format is a little nonsensical as he puts a 35 point question at the end. Hence even if you get the rest of the paper correct but are stuck on this last problem you are not going to do well. This is exactly what happened with me in the second midterm. Get his old tests if possible and go to T.A office hours and practice as much as you can. The lectures were a constant battle to stay up and understanding his lectures were very difficult as well. However he says that he believes that if you show up to lecture and do the homework then you should be fine.; however this is not always the case. Just practice a bunch of problems and try to stay at the top of the class because his curve is horrible. Avoid him if possible as there are other amazing professors for fluid mechanics and you will get to learn much more with them. Also he is super picky about the submission of home works. Be sure to be not more than 2-3 minutes late or else he will not accept your home work.
