Dr.Pietro is amazing lecturer. First test was the hardest for me, second and third were much easier and therefore the grade was way better. Exam was fair, covered the material from the whole course. An A is achievable, but hard work is required.

chem 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is an amazing professor. Teaches things very clearly and with a lot of interest. His tests can be a bit challenging though, meaning studying days or even a week before won't do you any good. Do all the problems at the back of each chapter while you are learning the material, not just before for the test. Overall, amazing prof :)

Dr. Pietro is one of the best profs I've seen first year at york. I disliked chemistry coming into uni but he totally changed my mindset and made me interested in chemistry again. He makes you really think! His tests can be quite challenging but his lectures are really interesting and I'd recommend him over any other chem prof!

Such a passionate professor! You have to work hard, practise consistently, ask questions, if you want a good grade in his class! Really enjoyed his class very much!

You'll get Ivy-League level education enrolling in Pietro's class. He's arguably the best professor York has to offer. It's a privilege to attend his classes, I'm seriously contemplating changing my major to Chemistry. His first test is very hard, but the other two and exam are manageable. You learn a lot attending his classes.

The way he teaches is perfect, but tests are very very hard. You would have to study really hard.
