CHM 1045L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

While the abs are covered by every Gen Chem 1 lab class in the same way, my one pet peeve from Campbell was that she didn't grade the majority of the assignments in a timely manner. I didn't like this. Other than that, she's approachable & always willing to help.

She is WORST professor ever. She has fill in the blank PowerPoints, which she barely goes over so you basically have no notes to use for knowledge. Her homework and tests are impossible because of her lack of teaching skills. She's just a nightmare. DO NOT TAKE HER!!

Chm 1046 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: WD

The absolute worst professor at FGCU. She tells you to read the textbook before learning the topic in class and then barely covers it if at all. She introduces a new concept and then spends the whole class rearranging equations and confusing people.

CHM 1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: C

She is a really great teacher and knows a lot about the subject. She is absolutely obsessed with Chemistry. She is really helpful. You just have to make sure you always attend class! She is very understanding. The only downside is that her tests are very difficult and she doesn't always cover everything that is going to be on the test in class.

CHM 1045 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This teacher was horrible. The lecture did not correspond to the book, and then the test did not correspond to the lectures. She speeds through notes to finish on time (focusing on the easy and skimming the hard information). Chemistry is already a hard subject and this teacher made it even worse. I would never recommend her for anything.

Good teacher that explains everything the best she can. Can sometimes get a little loopy but overall a good instructor. Definitely read the textbook before you go to each class

It is true that attendance is mandatory for Chem 1 and each absence is 5% of your grade. Also quizzes are always before class. However the content is clearly covered if you take notes before class from book like you are suppose to. And homework is very hard, which is a plus in my book, because that made the test very easy. If you like chem take her

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

Shes nice but exam is hard. Has questions which is not covered in class. Runs through information on lecture notes quickly just so she doesn't alter the syllabus . She's good for chem lab but lecture I don't think so unless you already like chem or familiar with it to some degree.

very smart professor but should not be teaching. attending class is a waste a time if you take her you are better off learning from the book.

CHM1045 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I enjoyed taking her for chemistry. There's no easy way out, read, study and give her proof of it at the exams for 1-4% extra credit. Making the quizzes due before class is an eye sore but it's only 5% of the grade. She really knows what she's talking about and will always help explain something in office hours. You either sink or float

She has a lot of questions on her tests that she never cared to go over in class. Quizzes are due BEFORE she even teaches you about the chapter, which is mind-boggling. AVOID

Chemistry is hard. It's not like it was in high school. Thus, professor Campbell expects a lot of her students. If you plan on taking chem classes through Orgo II (or more), she is the professor for you because she will FORCE you to change your study habits in such a way that you will make it through subsequent chem classes. GREAT teacher!

CHM1045 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You're graded for attendance because the lab is once a week and you must be there to learn. You get points off if your late (which I thought was dumb). But she's very helpful, she goes through the equations and help you understand them. The labs are pretty boring but if you try they're easy. She also gives extra credit. I wish I had her for lecture

She is very good at explaining things and would even use examples from other things outside of chemistry to explain. She is tough on her quiz question choices, homework is not too bad but just takes a long time depending. She gives many good tutorials and practices quizzes on Angel that help. I reccomend her but in order to pass you must study!

You have to study, chemistry is very hard. Her tests are multiple choice and show your work. The show your work is hard. HW after class and quiz before. She loves CHM and is knowledgeable. She will help with anything you ask. Stays late after class. large drop rate due to not studying and missing classes. every class is very important. Lots of math

Professor Campbell for lab is great! You will need to understand what is going on in lecture to do well in lab. As long as you do the assignments (which ALL lab teachers require) then you will get an A. She is very fair in grading lab reports. For Chm Lect, all the professors require pre-quizzes and h.w so there is no way to avoid that.

She is too young to be old, but too old to be young. She helps if you need it, but she will also challenge you (quite a lot). Her lab is fairly easy as long as you read instructions and her lecture is easy. She offers extra credit all the time and her exams are easy! They are everything from the homework.

Try your hardest to take this class with another professor. Homework didn't cover things that were on the quizzes, and exams are extremely difficult. She often didn't have answers to questions, and lectures only touched on the topic which you'll be tested on in depth. Treats everyone like a freshman. No break at all. DON'T RECOMMEND.

Nice professor, offered extra credit toward exams for proof of study. I?d recommend taking an introductory chemistry class before taking it with this professor. Material not covered thoroughly in class was included on exams; make sure you completely understand it before the exams. Class averages about 60%. Be prepared to study!
