Take this class if you want to skip class and not learn. He is very slack, allows a cheat sheet during the test, but the test are harder than expected. If you want to learn, look for a different professor.

To be clear, Analytical Chem isn't an easy subject, but it isn't that difficult either. I recommend everyone to take this class after Chem II because it's very similar. Exams and Finals are easy as long as have a good foundation of Chem II knowledge. People struggle with this course because they don't have a good working knowledge of Chem II.

I had degree in Physics but wanted my Masters in Education but had to take several basic core courses. I chose Chemistry with Dr. Lopez De La Vega. He was relaxed and knowledgeable while keeping the material interesting with great demonstrations of chemical reactions in class. He taught me how to teach by his example and I am grateful for that.

He is honestly an amazing professor, when he sees that his students are getting bored- he goes off on a funny tangent and gets right back on to the material. He cares about his students. He always jokes that he does mistakes and admits that he does (very few mistakes) - over all he is an amazing professor. The tests are FAIR

TAKE HIM!...You will not regret it. Once you do the past exams he posts and probably a little extra if you want you will be fine. His tests are easier compared to other professors and he ensures that his students understand. Yes he makes a few mistakes but nobody's perfect. It's all a learning process.

De La Vega is a cool dude. He is a really nice professor that truly tries to help his students pass. He is a good lecturer, balancing the class with practice problems and jokes. He puts a lot of supplementary material on his site that will help you get an A. One of my favorite profs Highly recommend him although he does not reply to emails. sigh...

Not a horrible teacher, pretty cool. He does a lot of examples, which are really helpful. His exams are really easy, just study the old ones he posts online and you'll be fine. There are 3 exams worth 100 points 1 final worth 200. He drops the lowest exam, not the final. You get extra points if you do Mastering Chemistry. Don't have to buy the book

This is an amazing professor. Yes he makes little mistakes at times but overall he wants students to pass and is very helpful and funny. I barely went to class and passed with a B+. Exams are fairly easy.

This guy has to be the most underrated professor in FIU. He is great! goes over everything slowly, gives reviews and old test before each exam and curves them all. He will take any question and provide an answer. He does practice problems in class and post everything on his site. People are always going to complain but he is an amazing prof.

He tries but isn't helpful at all. I got a D on the first test, stopped going to his class and taught myself, and got a B+ on the next one. Online HW is extra credit but not worth it. He gives 4 tests and a final but drops your lowest grade. He curves! 75 is a B. Work really hard and you can get an A. If you can't teach yourself, get someone else.

Great professor for the subject. If you only need Chem 1, I strongly suggest you take it with him. Missed MANY classes, but reading the book kept me up there. Do the tests he posts from previous years, read the book, do the homework and it should be fine. Makes jokes and there is no mastering chemistry or clickers. Go with him.

He is very nice and funny. Homework is optional and attendance is not mandatory. Exams are easy if you practice the problems in the book.

Extremely funny guy. His practice tests are his old tests, which are his new tests. He really cares about your understanding and is really good at explaining with A LOT of anecdotes. If I could I would take him again. He has insane curves too.

Boring professor, reads directly from slides, sometimes goes off-topic, but he's very helpful and he tells you exactly what is on the tests, so listen up! Also somewhat humorous

Pros: he's nice and exams are easy. Cons:Not a good teacher. Biggest problem my class had was with the final. All his exams were easy but the final was ridiculous. Questions on the final were never seen by us before. It was really unfair. If you have a choice take someone else.
