CHEM 2443 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took in Fall 2011. What made it so difficult was the fact that he did not go in order of the chapters. He went Ch. 1,2,3,4,7,4,7,8,7,5,6,8 and barely hit ch. 9. He said "I'm trying to make a connection". His exams were straight forward but hard to follow when he went out of order. Read the chapter and do all assigned questions.

CHEM2443 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Orgo is inherently difficult, which is why he can sometimes get a bad reputation. This class is not for anyone who's hoping to just sit there and be taught and get an A. Read the textbooks, do EVERY problem in the book, and pay attention in class and then you'll get an A. Try to take it with him if you can, he's the best in the dept.

Peczuh made this course so manageable. His lectures were straightforward, organized, and easy to follow. He was extremely helpful during office hours and recitations! I wish I could take orgo II with him too! One of the best profs!

CHEM2443 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class requires that you read the textbook and try lots of practice problems, but overall its not bad. Peczuh is extremely intelligent and funny at times. Going to the optional recitation is a must though or office hours!

CHEM2443 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Peczuh is good at teaching the material he goes over in class and it is clear. You are required to read the textbook cover to cover and do all the problems to do well on exams though. He is helpful in office hours though and will try to get the material across. Not impossible to get an A.

CHEM2443 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class requires a lot of independent work. If you read the textbook before class, and do the problems he suggests, you will be much better off. He didn't emphasize points that he would include in the exams, and was not readily available to meet with. Take his optional recitation class, that was very helpful.

CHEM2443 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I would not take this class with Peczuh. He does not present the information in a clear way and his exams are way harder than the other professors. I learned more from my friends with other professors. No help in office hours either and barely any scale.

Organic Chem Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Peczuh is a great organic professor. A brillant doctor whose knowledge is astounding. If you leave lecture understanding 30% of what went on your doing better than most. Read the book and take many notes and you'll do fine.

he really doesnt lecture for college kids. he lectures as if hes giving a presentation to chemists. i got a tutor because it was just too hard, but he is a truly nice guy and made the final relatively easy.

Chem 141 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His lectures are confusing, and you will most likely be lost. But if you attend the extra help sessions and office hours and read the text you will do well.

Peczuh explains organic chem in a very clear way. He also follows the book which is helpful. And he is very popular with the female students -- some girls in the class get very excited by his jokes.

Great teacher for Orgo. Very helpful outside of class. Good lectures with clear examples. Exams are fair - he really wants you to do well and understand the material.
