Phenomenal professor. He has a way of making the material in organic chemistry manageable yet fun. He has a really unique way of presenting the material which I still remember to this day. I never opened my textbook because his lecture notes were such a phenomenal resource. This is however a lecture based class. Very visual, invest in a model kit.

Professor Rubio was the best professor I have had so far. I never opened the textbook and did really well in his class. He explained things very clearly and his lecture notes were very thorough and understandable. I would study his lecture notes, my notes from class, the practice exams he posted and faired well on his exams. Awesome professor.

Rubio is the only reason I had a hope at passing chemistry. His discussions are the only helpful part of the course - if anything, go to discussion! He is not particularly friendly and very intimidating, but he is a really great teacher and I learned a lot from him.

Rubio is a great professor. His discussions are understandable, helpful, and were the only things that prepared me for the Chem tests. Definitely go to every one of his discussions.

This man is a game changer. He makes organic chemistry worth studying. Take his course and you'll appreciate chemistry.

Rubio is an amazing professor. He was my discussion leader, pre-lab and lab instructor. His explanation is very clear and. He tries to simplify everything so that students understand easily. He teaches what you need to ace the exams. I recommend him so much. I personally don't like chemistry, but if you do taking the class with him is a big plus.

He is an interesting person. He is funny, not friendly though. He is my discussion leader and my lab instructor, I feel that I learned a lot more from his explanation than from the lecture professor. I would really recommend him.

Rubio was a fun teacher to have! I personally hate chemistry and he made the discussions and labs bearable because he is such a character. Yes, he is quite intimidating and at times condescending but he is always helpful when people ask questions. Would highly recommend him, I feel I learned a lot from him.

The best Organic teacher at BU. His lectures are great, he is a funny guy, his class average is a B, and he has very helpful notes on his website. He made me love organic Chem!

Definitely a great lecturer. Good or not, a strong personality. Textbook is unnecessary because he posts notes online. He is fair in the sense that everything on the notes will be covered in some form or another on the exams. Thus, his exams are much more a matter of time-management than difficulty.

Very clear and easy to understand, but very rude in person and over email. Curve is great; average becomes about a B- or a B. Exams are pretty fair.

His online notes are way more useful than the textbook and the exam is based on them solely. Do the study guide, go to class and you'll understand organic chemistry well. His exams are harder than other teachers, but you will learn this stuff and in the long run (CH204), this will be helpful. He does not do makeup exams but usually one is dropped.

Rubio is an amazing professor who knows how to lecture. His lectures are perfectly paced and he pauses at perfect moments for jokes to keep the class from getting bored. His online lecture notes as much better then the book and his exams are tough. You will learn alot in his class (more so then other orgo classes) but it's well worth it.

He's funny and will definitely keep your attention in class. He is a little condescending though and not the nicest outside of the classroom. His exams are hard but what else can you expect with organic chemistry. Notes are extremely helpful.

Perhaps the best orgo professor ever. He makes it interesting. Even though he's pretty hard, you'll learn a lot and be prepared for mcats. Study from his lecture notes--don't even look at the textbook.

very clear in explaining concepts, the class itself will take up your life (he can't help that). he teaches with a fun twist so you rarely space out. class is optional but you should keep up with work and not miss lectures for your own benefit. he has lots of experience teaching- it shows. also-debatable- but he can be attractive in a weird way

Rubio is the man! Simply put it that way. He is extremely though but it is well worth taking his class. You will actually learn the material and remember it! Not to mention every lecture is entertaining with this amazing humor and lets not forget he gives us candy! (no joke he really does!) FYI, don't bother with the book use his online notes
