This is really a chemistry class folks. Don't expect cool experiments. Really strict with due dates. Will fall asleep during class, he sits up front and goes threw powerpoint slides (you don't get access to them). Boring teacher not helpful and sketchy grading. I think hes retiring this year. Nice guy otherwise.

He is nice professor, however he can not really teaches. You have to learn everything from your text by yourself. exam come from practice that are really confusing.

An absolute sweetheart. Yes his class is early in the mornings so drink a lot of coffee. Make sure you read the chapter before lecture or you will get lost. However he is extremely nice prof and approachable when you have any questions. **Do The Homework multiple times to study for a test!** He bases his tests right off the homework. Great guy!

This class was an easy class yes you had to do a couple of lab experiments but it was way easier than any other science with a lab requirement. The professor was great and always willing to help.

This was my first experience with an online course, but I would not recommend his class, in school or online. He barely gave any graded assignments, so if you got one bad grade it would significantly affect your average. Taught straight from the book. If I wanted to teach myself, I wouldn't bother taking a class.

Worst professor ever to come to UML. Laughs in your face when you fail and does nothing to help you learn the material. You teach yourself from the book. The class is for the non-scientist but the entire class is Chem. It even get into organic Chem. Worst decision I have ever made. My GPA was good before this class. GOOD LUCK!

By far the worst professor I have had in my entire college experience thus far. The class has "non-scientists" in the title and yet he treats us like we are nuclear engineers. His exams are impossible, he is not helpful at all, he expects too much out of non science majors, and he cares very little about students. avoid him!!!!

This teacher has a pleasant demeanor and is very helpful. The problem was, this material is so hard it's laughable that this was a freshman level class. I studied for 4-5 days all day to pass 4 exams. The labs were simple, the tests impossible for someone who has no chemistry experience. It's all chemistry and organic chem is touched on as well.

Put forth the effort and study and you'll do fine in the class. Exams are difficult, but your lowest grade of 4 exams will be dropped. Read the syllabus carefully and DON'T MISS ANY DEADLINES!

I had Dr Barry online for Forensic science w/ lab. I loved this class!! Dr. Barry's notes were very helpful and organized. He is a very encouragng professor and made the chemistry aspect of the class very interesting. The tests were mutliple choice, and you had 24 hours to complete. 4 labs and 2 critital thinkng assign. Dr Barry is great!!

This professor does not do make up period. If you miss a test, no matter what the excuse, that's your fault. He drops the lowest grade but also is a terrible at explaining things and his tests are always curve balls from left field. Class average is a 52 right now and he does nothing to help us.

On an exam, all of the possible multiple choice answers for a question contradicted the lecture notes and text book. When brought to his attention, he said that you can't always rely on what you read. He also said that he'd start checking the exams before they were given to students (!). Nice guy, but not a great teacher. Maybe he's just too busy.

My encounter w/dr Barry was as his role as Chem Dept chair. During our meeting we spoke about several inconsistencies, overall a productive meeting where an oral agreement was reached. W/in 1 wk he notified me that "I must have not understood what he was saying" BTW I understood quite well. Bottom line: DONT EVER TRUST HIM & Tape record everything

Barry's class is quite boring, but that's because it is at 8am and he uses a projector most of the time so you want to just go to sleep. He is a great guy though and will talk to you about anything. Work hard and show him that you are putting in effort and he will reward you for your efforts.
