We have been developing video tutorials for the TFS exam. When we finish all of them, we will put them behind a paywall and offer a course based on these videos. For now, as we develop them they will be free. There will be roughly about 50 videos to cover all of TFS. As of the writing of this post, the first 7 are ready and in our website.

No video will ever be longer than 10 minutes, to keep your attention focused. The dynamic will be to watch a short video and immediately solve problems associated with the video before moving on to the next one.

We're looking for honest constructive feedback, especially from our friends @Audi driver, P.E. and @MikeGlass1969

Do you have a schedule or timeframe when all 50 videos will be complete and available?

@Slay the P.E. I took some time to sample a few of them. Honestly, I was looking for things to critique and didn't find anything noteworthy. There are small things like, why did you bother to point out how to do unit conversions in one video, but not how to do a linear interpolation calculation (I assume time is the main factor). Will you cover how the use of a mollier diagram can be faster than a table, or at least used as a sanity check? Interpolating is time consuming.  I think you could expand some videos to as much as 12 or even 15 minutes to avoid trimming helpful exam tips. The professionalism and clarity are off the charts. Well done. Very helpful content.

Thanks!

@Slay the P.E. ...but not how to do a linear interpolation calculation (I assume time is the main factor).
Yes, it was left out for the sake of brevity. I think we will have a short tutorial just on linear interpolation.

Will you cover how the use of a mollier diagram can be faster than a table, or at least used as a sanity check? 
Oh, absolutely yes. We’ve been advocating for Mollier diagrams here for the longest time. That video (just on how to use h-s and P-h diagrams) will come after entropy and isentropic efficiency are introduced.

Oh alright. My exam is in a few weeks. I’ll check out the videos you have available for review of the material this weekend.

Thanks Mike,

It has been a while, but just recently we're picking up the pace again. We have two scripts ready for the voice actress so we'll be uploading those in about a couple of weeks.
