chem 1412 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Teaching would not be his specialty. He is a very nice guy, but I would not recommend his class. I would read the book and all of his ppt notes and still be lost every test. Yes, I made A's on all tests, but only with his huge curves. Thankful for his curve, but his test needs to change. Either cover the material or change the questions...

Chem 1405 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

Don't take his class. You'll have to teach yourself the course. All the information is on the power points. The textbook is a waste of $. curves his grades by 10-20 points. always says the wrong thing from the PPTS. Didn't have any chemistry experience. I only passed with a B because I had lots of outside help.

If you don't know anything about chemistry, you will have to read the book and teach yourself how to do everytihing. He curves his tests. He doesn't really explain things, he just reads the powerpoints.

CHEM1411 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Run away!!!! He expects all his students to be going into engineering and already have a grasp on chemistry. Boring lectures, monotone, hits the projector screen with a ruler (a billion times it's annoying). Labs are confusing, he really doesn't teach. Doesn't check to see if u understand. Goes way to fast in the power points so u end up not paying attention cause u couldn't keep up! I tried to take him but he such a bad teacher I had to drop him. (He's the first I've dropped)
