CH 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible. I learned absolutely nothing in his class. Make sure you read your textbook... there's a ton of stuff on his exams that are not even mentioned in class. Exams are vague and his grading policy is awful--a quiz question and exam question hold the same weight! I learned more in my biology class about acids and bases from this man. AVOID HIM

CHEM-101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Carr is a nice guy, but for some reason when he teaches, it doesn't make much sense, but I think he knows his teaching isn't the best so he does help out a little with grades come test time. Overall, if you take him for general chemistry you should be fine, but I would not suggest higher level chemistry.

Dr.Carr is a very smart guy. He knows his stuff. He is not very good at teaching it or explaining it. He expects students to know everything ahead of time. The class is hard and he makes it even harder. If you had an option, I would not take this professor.

CHEM 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Carr is a super smart guy who knows a whole lot,just doesn't know how to convey that to a group of students. Class is frustrating and he often assumes that 101 student already know things/glosses over them. He goes super fast &is hard to keep up w/understand.If you approach him he'll explain things to you, but he can seem annoyed at having to do so

CHEM101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He gets very confused, and upset if you ask too many questions. He knows so much but doesn't know how to explain it. If you go to class, pay attention, and do practice problems this class is a breeze. TAKE HIM

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

i made presidents list this year and last so it's not my study habits. this man has no idea what he's doing. i had him for chem 102 and he's completely lost when it comes to his own material. we spent most of class trying to figure out why his problems where wrong on the board. seriously, don't take him.

chem102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

this man is not a good instructor he doesn't even know how to conduct a class. He even confuses his self with materials. I didn't learn anything in this class. if you want to learn anything about chemistry don't take him for any chemistry. unless you want a bad grade.

Doctor Carr is a great teacher. He is laid back but he will teach you no matter what. Sometimes he confuses his self but he will work hard to help you pass, he doesn't like to see anybody fail. He a cool guy! #TakeHim

chem101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

he took attendance for about a month then after that he stopped. He isn't very clear when presenting the material but he does try his best. the only reason i did ok is b/c he curves a lot! we used the textbook a bit but it was useless to me. his study groups are helpful but be prepared to be TOTALLY LOST on the final exam that comes from the state.

Chem101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Chem 101 and 101L. He is a good teacher that hates to see anyone have bad grades. He doesn't like teaching to a big group, but he makes things easy and always tries to help anyone out that needs help *hint*. Course is difficult, but he tries his best.

CHEM101L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took Dr. Carr for chemistry 101 lab. He is very laid back and explains procedures thoroughly. He is always willing to help and wants you to receive the best possible grade. Labs usually don't last the entire 3 hours. A little unorganized but very nice and available to you during office hours. I highly recommend taking Dr. Carr for chemistry!
