Not a great professor, but at least she is a nice person! Her quizzes were kind of hard in that she expected a certain method in solving longer problems. Sometimes, this method just did not make any sense whatsoever. Her class was boring as heck too! I would go for another Chem professor if possible.

Dr. Schrenk is a great person, not such a great professor. She knows her stuff but is poor at explaining them. Manages class time poorly and will keep you till minutes past. Her quizzes are very hard. Lots of homework but if you look over all the hw problems before a quiz it will help. She is very glad to help you out outside of class, however.

the worst professor i have ever had. she goes through the material to quickly and doesnt take enough time to teach you any of the material during class. the homework is hard and time consuming. i would recommend you think twice before taking her class.

Very Hard teacher, TONS of homework, that takes up a lot of time. Its almost like she thinks that her class is the only class we are taking that semester! Avoid her at all cost.

she has a really nice personality, and when you need help and go to her office hours she will definitely help. she wants what is best for the students, but plan on putting in A LOT of work. homework takes a while, but make sure you actually understand it.. don't google it.

Definitely a hard teacher. Like any science or math course, expect to put in 4-5 hours a week on homework/text reading and studying to receive a decent mark. Try to make yourself liked by this professor. If she knows/likes you, you will see your quiz scores skyrocket from additional partial credit points she adds. Probably the hardest chem class

RUN AWAY! Never take her class. You'll feel like you're in HELL if you take her class. It's a SUPER boring class. She just read through slides really quick and doesn't teach that much. The worst professor I have ever met. 0% in helping students. Her quizzes are so hard and time consuming. She's so crazy about sig.figs. RUN AWAY WHILE YOU STILL CAN.

Overall terrible professor. She put most of the class to sleep during lectures. Her explanations for a lot of theories were vague at best. Blows through slides and assigned homework that you often can do until the night before the due date. Shes extremely smart, she just cant teach.

This woman is aggravating. I was in the first section she taught at UMASS Lowell and dropped the course after the first week. She forces your to adhere to a time consuming format for homework and emailed us at 7pm the night before class to bring them in the next day (8am class). Argued with her in class and she extended due date. No partial credit.

Awful professor. Totally useless when it comes to examples, and speeds through power points in lectures. Homework is difficult and takes a long time to complete. Quizzes are hard and she is a tough grader. Her tests were nearly impossible and just about the whole class failed every one. Would not recommend her to anyone.

this professor is all about waht she is doing. she is really into teaching the material. but this does not make the course any easier you will have to work at it. her lecture notes are very helpful. the only comlaint is that she gives terrible partial credit or none at all which i do not agree with. but good luck

One of the best professors I have had in my time here. Lectures are clear and concise. Attendance is not mandatory, but the weekly quizzes are based almost completely off the lecture material. If you regularly attend class and take notes, you will do well on the quizzes. Overall a very nice, helpful professor that I'd definitely recommend.

TERRIBLE professor. Homework assignments are weekly and take 5-6 hours each, but some things in them you do not learn until the day it is due. Weekly quizzes on things that are not covered in class. Her only advice in office hours is to reread the textbook and lecture notes, she does not give any insight or advice. No mercy when it comes to grading

Professor Shrenk is fantastic; super helpful, and really cares about the students themselves, not just their chem grades. Encourages hard work but gives lots of second chances. Really a great professor, UML is lucky to have her! :)
