Prof. Eskandari is a great professor. He has a great sense of humor and makes a 3-hour evening lecture bearable. If you pay attention and take notes in lecture, read the chapters in the textbook and do lots of practice and studying, you can pass the class. Tests are pretty much on spot as far as what he has covered.Hes pretty easy on the eyes too:)

BEST PROFESSOR I'VE HAD AT UCD! He genuinely cares about his students. Extremely clear, helpful lectures (do not miss). HIGHLY recommend going to every one of his OH's (runs OH's like a mini-workshop). Makes lecture bearable with his jokes. Difficult material, but fair tests. Keep up with the material and "Practice Practice!" ESKANDARI IS THE BEST!

This class is very manageable as long as you don't fall behind with the material. Eskandari really cares about his students and wants them to succeed, but don't wait until the end of the class to go to office hours. He's pretty funny too so lectures are not boring. One of my favorite professors. He'll expect you to work for your grade. Hammer time!

He is a great professor, lectures are not only helpful and clear but he keeps them interesting and fun as well. Sometimes he has the students teach a problem which is different but good. The class is hard but he is very fair. Office hours are extremely helpful and it is possible to get an A if you work very hard. I hope to have him again!!

As a transfer student, this is one of the first classes I took in UCD. I feel like this class is easier than the gen chem class I took back in my community college. If you ask why, I'd give credit to Eskandari's clear lectures and his encouragements to the class. FYI, I had a B and a C in gen chem(2 semesters). I got an A- in here CHE118A.

Eskandari was a great teacher! He really cared for us, and encouraged us to do our best. The class is hard itself, but he did a great job. He really was the best chem teacher I had so far!

Professor Eskandari is very encouraging. The subject is very hard itself but he repeatedly told the class dont worry so much about the grade and to understand the concepts. Hard to fall asleep in this class because he is funny. Favorite quotes: " Do not give up, prove it to yourself that you can do it" "Its hammer time"

He genuinely takes interest in our learning and shows how well he wants his class to do. If you attend lecture, go to office hours, and attend workshops then you should be able to do pretty well in the class. The exams are hard, but if you do a lot of practice like he says, you should be able to do well on them.

He is a very difficult professor. His exams are very difficult and lengthy. His curve sucks compared to other ochem professors. He's funny but i would not recommend taking him.

"Are you happy now?" Funniest professor I've had, super nice and has a good curve. Discussion is mandatory. Really invested in his class. Definitely happy with this class, and worth it to have this professor, even if I had to wake up for 8AM classes 4/5 days of the week.

Professor Eskandari is very thorough! Repeats concepts over and over. ATTEND LECTURE and “PRACTICE!” If you do all the assigned problems and practice tests, you can def get an A! Tests are extremely fair. Curve is real nice, but trust you won’t need it if you put in quality effort! Very funny! Cares about his students. He makes o-chem very fun!

Effective lecturer. SHOULD attend lectures to see what's covered: lectures are clear and concise(except during synthesis weeks towards the end when mechanisms and reactions are thrown at you in a pile). Curve was pretty standard for intro o-chem class. Cool and funny. Eager to teach. My advice: attend his office hours and do the problems assigned

Eskandari is an extremely funny professor who tries to engange his students and make them interested in chemistry. His grading is fair though tests are difficult. Really recomend going to office hours! He does his best to remember student's names and give extra practice examples to understand concepts more.

Chemistry was hard for me but I managed to get a B. His tests are fair. Recommend doing the practice exams. He's really nice and pretty funny. He does have a spelling problem so be sure to check him on his spelling. Especially in nomenclature. He's not a morning person though. I'd recommend him.

actually like chem now cause of his class. He's clear and funny so you dont fall asleep. He writes everything out so it's not too fast. His tests are long but if you know your stuff you'll finish. IF you go to class and do the hw, its enough to get an A for the class.

Had 8am lecture and he did a good job keeping us awake. The tests were too lengthy for the given time but the curve was generous. Homework on masteringchem for the entire quarter took a total of maybe an hour and was a free 6% of your grade.

Eskandari is a knowledgeable professor who will answer your questions if you ask them. He's chill. The midterms are insane, though; they're unnecessarily lengthy and pretty difficult. The curve will save you. Go to professor and TA office hours. Go to tutoring. Watch Enderle's YouTube videos. PS- I love the way Eskandari says "chloride"

Eskandari's grading is extremely fair. He may be confusing at times during lectures due to the fact that he must cover so much material in 50 min. However, go to his office hours!! He really tries to help you, answers any and all questions you have, and tries to learn your name. Afterwards, I guarantee you will not be confused

Prof. Eskandari is a good professor and explains concepts in a way which is easy to understand. His curve was absolutely terrible, I got an 83 percent in the class and ended up with a B+. In any other chem teachers class that would be an A.
