Chem 30B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

One thing is that you earn your grade. This class is easy if you study. If you don't study it's difficult. Textbook wasn't much use. Tests are based off lecture, ppts, and hw. Needless said, great professor.

Chem30B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great Class this summer. Advice is Take chem30A, take Bio classes then take Chem 30B with Schaffert. Everything will make sense. Got an A- but studying the notes plus online hmwork paid off. I will definitely will take another class with him. Very nice person.

Chem 30B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took Chem 30B with him Summer 2013. He is a great instructor, very knowledgeable in the subject. He will go out of his way to help, all you have to do is ask him. The class was not was not easy, but I managed to get an A-. Take notes EVERYTHING that he writes on the board. Study all of your notes and go over mastering chem. homework before exams!

This professor was by far one of my favorite teachers. Chemistry is a hard subject, but he managed to teach it well in order for his students to understand. I would definitely take another class with him.

Chem 30A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

First time taking chem so it was all new for me.I studied so hard for many hours and even had study sessions with my lab partner.Labs were not terrible but time consuming. I seriously had no life this quarter and in the end still only ended up with a B-. The subject was really hard and not so much the teacher. He is really nice. Chem is terrible

Chem 30B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

A very good teacher of a very tough subject. He is very sweet and knowledgeable about the subject. He really wants students to succeed in his class and will help you as much as he can. He's very straight forward and you get to drop lowest exam and quiz score. Great teacher and awesome person! Highly recommend.

CHEM30B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I had to read along in the book to have any idea what he was talking about. Boring and unengaging. Not clear about what will be on the test.

CHEM30A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I was excited prior to going into this class. He doesn't explain things well. I had to teach myself with youtube videos and the textbook. He gives you way to much info and says certain things are on the test but really aren't. Really hard class.

Eh.. Not a good teacher. I taught myself most of the material and hardly showed up to class after he stopped taking attendance. He's a nice guy but not a good professor. The labs are Extremely unorganized. Hes an easy grader, gives partial credit, and drops one lab and lecture quiz so it's not an unbearable class.
