He is unclear and his grading is somewhat different from most other profs. Show all work and do 'practice' problems in etext because they appear in pre-lect quizzes. Usually curves, but you cannot get lower than a C on any exam and expect an A. If he knows you as an enthusiastic student, he prob curves you an extra 2% total. Gives hints for exams.

He is a good professor. Just show interest in his class, ask alot of questions, and get ready to do alot of work! He cares about his students and responds quickly to emails. Make sure to visit during office hours to stay ahead of the game!

Terrible professor. His slides are full if mistakes, he is biased when grading. Take anyone but him or you WILL regret it!

Dr. Santillan is a professor that usually assumes that you understand the material. He knows his stuff, but he isn't the clearest professor. If you don't understand him, ASK HIM QUESTIONS after class or in lab. Keep on asking questions until he has to give clear answers. Nevertheless, I would recommend him. He's got a quaint sense of humor.

I have him for lab and his explanations of things are SO confusing. He is a nice guy but he manages to make things way more complicated than they need be. Also, he assigns a lot of pointless busy work.

Lectures are incredibly dry. So hard to stay awake during his class. Powerpoints are not very easy to follow. Use the study guides, as the tests are exactly the same questions as the study guides, just with different numbers.

Really nice guy and is helpful when you ask him questions but he's such a harsh grader! i had him for quant lab and he gave really low scores even if you turned it in a second time with corrections! i would recommend students to pick another teacher if possible but if you have him, just be very careful at following the procedures in your lab manual

He is a good guy, but not good teaching, i recommend to not take him if possible but if you have to i recommend you get to know him and tell him how hard your workig...he will most likely cut you a break.

He's very nice, but cannot teach, he's all over the place. I learned more on my own, like on the owl homework, than from him.

He sucks at teaching chem. yes he's a nice guy, but that doesn't mean he's the greatest professor. kinda killed my interest in this major, but this is just one road block. AVOID HIM IF POSSIBLE, for ur GPA's sake.

Unfortunately, I was forced to take this instructor for four consecutive quarters. I would advise you to avoid at all cost. He's a pleasant enough guy, but simply does not know how to teach. His tests are incredibly hard while his lectures are confusing at best. This man will kill any passion you have for chemistry.

He really cares about his students, and makes the effort to help although his lectures aren't too clear. Took him for the sequence 101-103. His first midterm is always the most difficult, but 2nd & final exams are much easier. Grades on huge curve. Great lab professor, and recitation quizzes are farily simple. His humor actually works sometimes.
