Do not listen these people below me. Dr. Graham is very helpful that's if! you actually ATTEND office hours! and pay attention in class. He gives clicker questions and quizzes which help you with the exams. The exams themselves were very doable if you STUDY!. It's organic chemistry what do you expect people?! an easy course? pls.

There's a big difference between being smart and being able to teach. Just because one has good credentials doesn't making him a good professor. I'm sorry, but you may be very smart, but the ability to teach is in significant need of improvement.

Okay so I had 2 years ago and I have to say, he's a fair and good teacher. I had an F by midterms, studied my butt off for the next 2 tests, and managed to get a C+ according to syllabus. He bumped it up to a B. If you pay attention from day 1, and if you don't procrastinate you'll do well. My mistake was procrastinating. He's a fair decent teacher

If you want to learn then I highly recommend taking graham over ceasar. His teaching style and notes are crystal clear and it will prepare for the exams. The quizzes and clicker questions will guide you and encourage you to study rather cramming everything at the last minutes. Lastly his exams are very simple,everything you know is on his notes!

Very smart professor and teaches his class very well. Yes, there are quizzes before every class and clicker questions during class. Attendance is mandatory to pass. The quizzes are not that bad and prepare you for that days class and the exam. He is very approachable and always willing to help if you need it. I would recommend him.

Play it safe, graham is not a great teacher but he is certainly not the worst. If he is the only announced teacher just take him, there are alot worse teachers out there.

He is a really good professor, good at teaching, and over a good guy. For those who don't like him, it is probably because you don't pay attention in class. If you do, there is a big chance you do well in the mid-term and finals which highly influenced by Graham...

Very fair professor. Chem is a hard subject & there's no point in blaming him for it. I'd recommend acing the 1st two gen chem exams so if you don't do as well for the 3rd orgo it won't affect your grade as much. The practice exams (his, not the ones he posts from other profs) are very much similar to the actual ones he gives out. An A is possible

Dr. Graham cares that we're prepared to get to the next level; whether it be graduate school or med school. He cares enough to handwrite his own notes, go through everything with us, provide practice exams, and see us during office hours. To the person who said pharmacy students avoid, maybe you shouldn't be in pharmacy school. Graham is the man.

Had him back in 2nd yr. This guy ruined my entire summer back then- He cant teach orgo, and he totally sucks at gen chem also. He cant teach, doesnt explain sh*t,he himself doesnt know what the F he is talking about and reads directly off his stupid notes. Wish I had chosen a class that had Cesare or Brown. All pharmacy majors- AVOID IN 1ST+2ND YR

This guy has absolutely no business being a teacher. Half the time his back is to the class looking at notes he didn't even write and the rest of the time you can't even hear him. Talks down to students and basically puts as little work as possible into helping us out. His info conflicts with what you read in the book so watch out for that

He's a very great professor, yes he knows the subject as if its his life. He's very helpful but this is the most stressful classs ever and he just makes it even more stressful. If you can take Ceasar, take him. The things we learned in class were useless and we'll forget after. Save your sanity and gpa. Do not take this man

I found his class very helpful. Prior to his class people told me he was hard, but I don't see it at all. I think people mistake his techniques as hard stuff. But, he broke down the material more than other professors did. However, I do have to say that he required more work from us in return. Like mini pre-class quizzes.

First of all, orgo will NEVER be an easy class. That being said, Graham is a very helpful and approachable professor. Quizzes before every class but don't be put off by that...it'll keep you studying and make sure you're not cramming before the test. Powerpoints are easy to follow and tests are relatively straight-forward.

He is one of the most outgoing professors I've ever had. He's extremely helpful if you don't understand. How he explains concepts makes them easy to remember too. His class seems to fly by because the activity level keeps you on your toes. You fail if you don't go to class or try. You fail quizzes or the class if you don't stay at the class's pace.

I'd like to start off by saying that whoever dislikes this man has no soul. His tests are VERY simple and easy, as long as you study and pay attention. He WANTS to help you, emails you contents of quizzes and sometimes even the quizzes themselves. Practice exams, etc. has us get yahoo im to chat. He's funny, nice, clear, i could go on and on.

Dr. Graham is a good guy. He likes to help any student who is willing to learn and makes his notes really detailed so you fully understand the material. He puts a lot of effort into his job and does it well. I highly recommend taking Dr. Graham if you want to do well in chemistry, his notes tell you exactly what you need to know for the exams!

makes chemistry so much harder than it should be. Theres no evading him, he puts his own question on everyone test whether you have him or not. Makes reciatation so much harder than it was. The question he makes are confusing and makes everyones' lives a living hell.
