CHEM 1412 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

If you have a good foundation in chemistry, you should be fine. Daily quizzes seem horrible at first but they force you to study the material and help tremendously with the test.

chem2423 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Although I got an A in his class, I wouldn't advise anyone to take him. He is hard for no reason, to the extent that even he was tricked by some of the problems on his own reviews and exams. I had Ayers for lab and he is a far better instructor. Take him instead.

I took the chem lab class. Made a B average. Labs starts by quiz worth 20 point, which were added to yr lab. If you are late to lab you lose 20 points on your weekly lab. You better come prepared. Great instructor, makes jokes every once in a while. You will learn something with him.

CHEM1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

First off, this class is not a freebie. Be prepared to study and know the notes well. Book was not really needed, more like a reference. Everything was taught out of his powerpoint slided. Homework is done online, do the ex. credit, can bump a letter grade. Quizzes everyday, but they are 1 question "dailies". Not a bad prof, and willing to help.

CHEM1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is a very good teacher and is very interesting. if you show up to class and do the work you will make an A. His class is not a blow off, he gives a quiz every class period and has only a midterm and a final for his exams. He offers extra credit for his homework asigments. His lab is pretty difficult and requires alot of studying.

chem1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Has daily quizzes that is either a 0 or 100. 1 quiz can drop your grade by a point or 2. Only tests are midterm and final. Which are hard. I barely passed, and the only reason was because this is my 2nd go around. The hw was worthless but had to do it or drops your grade. Not as helpful as he was in the past. Dont take him unless your good at chem.

CHEM1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

No reviews for tests, so that is one MAJOR let down. Gives quizzes EVERY day, and if you don't do well on those, they will REALLY bring your grade down. Goes pretty fast, and at times does not provide help when asked. He knows his Chemistry, and is a funny guy, but he doesn't explain his Power Points thus he does not teach very well.

I don't know what people see when they say hot. More like NOT! Besides the guy is a fruit basket. He is very temperamental and more than half of the days he is grumpy and in bad mood. Yes his teaching method is good but he is a pain in the neck. It is like dealing with a bipolar narcissistic person!

I was in the first Organic Chemistry class that Dr. C had taught. He is excellent at explaining information at lecture. I will definitely take him again for part II. Tests were around 30 questions multiple choice, w/ 3 bonus, not tricky. He also instructed the lab. What's nice is no lab practicals but you do have to type a 4 page post lab report.

Great Professor, Will do whatever it takes for you to make the grade. Do all your homework especially the extra-credit. Take good notes and read the chapters before class. Put it this way, I got a 53 on my last test, a D on my Final, ended up with a 83 after finals, but got an A because of extra credit. This is a great guy, take him if you can.

Great instructor. Very clear, explains things until you understand; throws in visual examples/drawings, which helped me alot. He's very tough, and expects you to follow his rules; treats you like a grownup & expects you to act like one. Gave a quiz over every lab. I thought he was great - wish I'd had him for lecture!

I agree with the vast majority of the reviews. I wont repeat the same, but I'll give you some of the cons regarding this professor.1) He doesn't round your grade, 89.9999= B 2) the online Lab are rushed ,due 2 days after lab 3) if youre ever a few min late to lab, you get an automatic zero. 4)can get 'pissy' easily, particularily in the mornings.

Professor Coniglio is not only the best chemistry teacher I've ever had but one of the best professors period. He is an excellent lecturer and does many examples of the math in class to help the student understand. You have to be insanely lazy or depressingly stupid to not pass his class.

Great lecturer,explains everything thoroughly and clearly,throws in a bit of humor.Tests and class aren't too hard. For Lab he's not the best,although he explains everything thoroughly the lab reports are a bit rushed, you have 2 days to do it online. Also,if you're ever late be it 2 or 5 min. expect an automatic zero on the prelab quiz.

This class is trial by fire, regardless of who's teaching it. Dr. C is a very good teacher though, and knows what he's talking about. He's a very good teacher, very clear, teaches problems in depth, provides extra credit, and is over all very friendly and helpful. He doesn't review though, which is a bit frustrating.
