This class was rough but I passed it with a B. He's very helpful when you need help. Lectures are sometimes confusing. Take notes!! The tests are difficult somewhat. Study study study! Labs are very helpful and they challenge you. He's very nice and easy to talk to.

Here's the deal, if you're ever confused, he always is there to listen and answer your questions in a way that makes you think critically. He has a lot of experience, his lectures are a bit hap-hazard but you learn a ton in lab. If you pay attention and work hard out of class, he helps you to get a B or an A.

Amazing teacher. The subject matter is difficult, but he teaches it in a fun and practical way. He has a great sense of humor and is always willing to help. He works in the Success Center and goes the extra mile to make sure you understand. Heavy textbook and lab book use so be ready. He offers a lot of points to help cushion your grade.

Professor Schwarz is a great, corky, instructor and anyone who says otherwise should think if it is him they hate or the subject. Chemistry is not an easy subject, but if you put effort in with Dean and visit him in the success center you will do fine. The class will take some thinking, but if you are not ready for that why even go to college.

We started with a full class of about 30 and now the last day of class we have 9 because of how hard we had it. I would have dropped but couldn't. He requires more than most teachers who are teaching the same subject. Do NOT take his class.

dean is amazing. i loved his passion and support via success center. i enjoyed his class and chemistry after it was all said and done. there needs to be more professors like dean ...he also loves running which is awesome. those who think he is poor quality need to go through school once more to appreciate things they might not appreciate this time

One of the older chem teachers there, but definitely one of the wisest. You can actually see his experience when he teaches he's been doing it for awhile. Take this guy for chemistry before he retires! hes the best 1 ive hadTests(out of 7 prof) are one of the harder things in his class but its not they're not impossible make sure you pass nmncltre!

Easy-going and let's you turn in work late, but his tests are really hard and you really have to devote a lot of time into studying. Goes off on tangents a lot during lecture but teaches you what you need to know

Dean can give the impression to some that he is friendly and caring but that is just a facade. He has his favorite students and appears to get peeved if you ask him for help or you appear to be struggling. He can be malicious and make quite belittling remarks to certain students.Overall, an ok but over rated member of staff at SWIC.

LOVE his class!!!!!!! Dean is a very nice guy who is totally willing to help. I took the summer session. His notes were a little bit all over the place, you really have to watch were he goes on the board and take the notes in order. Gives extra credit on tests, and liberal with points for trying.

As a person he's a great guy, as a teacher not so great. His notes were so unorganized n he jumped all around. He's cool about giving pts for effort. Wasn't helpful as tutor in Success Center either.

At age 38, I have a different view of professors. This is my dime and on my time. That being said, some advice. Study. Read the book. Take good notes. Attend workshops. Listen to lectures. Dean is fair, but tough.

Very hard class to keep up with. He jumps all over the place - Very nice guy, but teaching on our level is not one of his skills. I was hoping Chemistry would be enjoyable, but it was horrible. Take lots of notes - but do not use them, Book is not helpful. You are on your own!
