CHEM 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

Chem353 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.
