GenChem I an II Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I went in to this course hating chem. At the end of Gen Chem I, I learned to love chem and added a minor in it. I also took the second level with her as well. I now am going into teaching bio and chem thanks to her. I love her if you can take her, I had a terrible teacher in high school and she fixed that. Also do her practice tests "wink" "wink".

ChemI Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The first semester I had her she was great, somewhat helpful, always replies to your emails. She never misses class. But she teaches at a graduate level to undergrads and it's hard to keep up. I took one of my study guides to a tutor and he was confused because she had typos. Grades difficultly.

CHEM052 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She was a very good professor for Intro to Organic Chemistry. Her lectures are extremely clear and she holds a lot of review session and online chat sessions before exams. Although she teaches well and is helpful, her exams are very hard, but a good grade is not impossible.

GenChem Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is a very good professor. She loves to help people and is one of the best ones to explain something to you. On the other hand she tends to mis-grade exams/quizzes so ALWAYS check yours when you get them back.

CHEM2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Rachakonda is probably the best professor you could have. Always extends due dates, gives reviews in class. She wants everyone to do well in class. GO TO CLASS! I missed a couple of classes for a funeral and regret it a lot. If you go to class and study the notes she gives you, you'll do well in her class.

GChem03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is the best chemistry teacher ever. No doubt. She explains it clearly, uses good analogies, and always willing to help. She will IM, Call, arrange meetings, go over topics all on her own time. She is great, I made sure I got into her GEn Chem II class as well as intro to Org. She is fun too. I HIGHLY recommend taking her. I love chemistry now!

Chem1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class is fairly easy, she holds a lot of review sessions. My only annoyance is that she repeats herself a lot, and she can be late to class or hold class over. Other than that she's pretty good.

CHEM1006 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr.Rachakonda is a really great professer, she holds review sessions before exams, posts practice exams online, and makes it very clear during lecture what she expects on her exam, and alot of professers do not go out of their way to do that. If you attend lecture and practice and review the material you will be sucessful.

Her lectures are very confusing and she is constantly repeating herself. Has no respect for her students. Arrives late to class almost everyday and expects that we will stay after class is over.
