ever taken thermodynamics? if so, as a chemistry course (i.e, physical chemistry) or as a physics course? what was it about thermo that gave you difficulties, if any? what would have made a course in thermodynamics easier for you to learn? how would you change your thermodynamics textbook? what would make a good thermodynamics study guide? i would also love to hear the perspective of people that took thermodynamics in a non-american institution.
