Chem 109B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B+

He is a good professor if you come to class prepared, which is something I realized after finishing Chem 109B. I would rather have him than Bruice because he really is passionate about teaching. Take CLAS and do practice midterms/finals on gauchospace.

109A and B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I didn't particularly care for chem before. Aue simply made me fall in love with Chemistry. If you are anything like me (have a problem just memorizing something just as a fact and wanna know why things are the way they are) you'll love Aue. Everything I learned in this class will stay with me for a long time

06619 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B+

I HATED chemistry and was so afraid to go into O-chem because of all of the negative things I have heard about how hard it is, but Aue made me love O-chem so much! I actually enjoy his lectures because he gives background as to what things are used for in the real world and he is really funny as well. Also, his tests are very straight forward.

Chem 109A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Aue is the best, seriously all these negative comments made me submit a rating. Not only are his lectures precise, but cover various topics, some concepts not fully discussed in the book. His online resources give the student an accurate idea of what to expect in exams. It's helpful to read and do some book problems but his exams are straight.

Chem 109A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Awesome professor! Although is lectures were sometimes confusing, he really knows what he's talking about and wants his students to do great. Really helpful in office hours and actually listens to concerns with his tests and will give you points back unlike other professors. Basically if you're gonna take ocher, take it with Aue!

CHEM 109AH Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Pretty awesome dude. He loves Ochem and loves to teach it. He is pretty demanding and expects you to do a fair amount of work outside of class, at least in the honors section. Be sure to read the book and work lots of problems and you will be fine. The practice exams are very similar to the real ones.

ABC109 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Aue is brilliant! Go to lecture to listen to what he has to say and understand main concepts, but read the text book to study for tests. He seems a bit all over the place, at first I thought his tests would be impossible but they are very straight forward if you understand examples from the book. Everyone bashing him is too lazy to apply themselves

CHEM109C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I believe the only useful information I got from him was which chapters to study for for the test. His lectures were all over the place and not clear, you're better off reading the book, I wish I stopped attending his class earlier to do that...

CHemChem Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Terrible teacher!!! Half the time hes talking about irrelevant bull crap and doesn't even cover everything on his tests in lecture. Leaves it up to you to learn most of the material on your own and offers very minimal help when asked questions. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!
