EGN1000L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The absolute WORST teacher I've ever had the displeasure of having. DO NOT TAKE HER. She doesn't show up the day assignments are due because she doesn't even know the materials she assigns. Her projects are pointless and have nothing to do with the course. Save yourself the tuition and time.

EMAANY Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had the good fortune of having Gupta for Chem Thermo so I only had to have her for mat. sciences. She's just not a good teacher. She seems like she reviews the material five minutes before class and is often wrong. If you attempt to correct her, she refuses to admit she's wrong. Just grin and bear it... you don't really have a choice.

ECHANY Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Really she is not bad. It could be worse, much worse. Gupta is a far better teacher but his class is much harder them hers. The book she use in my class was aweful but I servived by using the Smith,Van Ness introduction to ChmE thermo book. Just teach your self the material and work a lot of example problems at home you will do fine.

ECH4123 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She's knowledgeable about chem thermo but can't really explain it to students. Definitely not bad enough to take Gupta instead. Homework is very tough and her lectures don't prepare you for it. Get ready to read a lot and teach yourself for the homework. Have fun....we all did!

ECH4123 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She is very rude when we try to ask questions and unwilling to help you. She's always busy for her students and if you need help she tells you to email her or the t.a. even though she is right there to help you. She assigns difficult hw from chapters ahead that she'll cover briefly after a while. Tests contain things she didnt even cover.
