Does anyone have good thermo study techniques? Or the best resource to help study it?

I feel like it's just a lot of practice with the homework problems he assigned since there's just so much math involved. Also, going through the book and writing down important equations (and when to use them/what conditions) also helps.

I think practice problems are the way to go for thermo. Personally, it is helpful to go through different types of problems and have set techniques for solving them.

I agree with those above. I also thing its smart to go about and create a little study guide as you move through the text, lecture notes, and homework problems, outlining which situations in which to use certain equations and rules and exceptions. Repetition of the problems is key as the more problems you have done, the more your brain is able to identify what to do during a test. I also think understanding thermochemistry and thermodynamics conceptual wise is important. If you know how to do the problems only you won't be able to think outside that realm if something else shows up on the test. So make sure you get a good grasp on understanding the reasons why we use certain equations and methods to solve certain problems
