Chem111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

PRG is a good teacher given she is HARD! Do practice problems in the textbook and GO TO HER OFFICE HOURS! Attend SI sessions regularly and you should be fine. Attendance is not mandatory but I strongly suggest you go. She's tough and sometimes her notes are scattered all over the board.

PRG is head of the chemistry department so she knows what she is talking about & loves what she does. Content/Class is tough, but she helps prepare her students for the future. Go to office hours. Key: do book practice problems & go to SI. TAKE if you want to be prepared for future chem classes, do not take if you have no interest in chemistry.

Chem111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is ok. But she is normally a chem 300+ teacher so she assumes that you are really good at Chem. Well, I have never taken chem before so I was doing poorly. Doesn't respond well to emails, doesn't explain things clearly at all. The kids who did well have taken AP chem before. Period.

PRG is absolutely amazing! She's so dedicated to science and she tries to get the rest of her class interested, too. I seriously want to be just like her when I'm older.

She is the best teacher I have had in college by far. She is a fair grader who gives partial credit if you started a problem correct.She is also a really funny person who makes chem interesting. If you take her class you will have to work for a good grade. The key to doing well is read the book, do the homework problems, and use her practice tests.

Wonderful professor! She explains concepts in a way every student should be able to understand. I highly recommend reading the text book to follow along with lecture. Doing problems is the only way to succeed in this class so DO THE HOMEWORK PROBlEMS SHE ASSIGNS from the book. She always gives helpful practice tests as well. Take her!!

Dr. Riggs-Gelasco is the best professor I have had at the College of Charleston. She has the funniest sense of humor and tries very hard to make class enjoyable. I definitely recommend taking her. She is a fair grader and gives partial credit if she sees you started the problem out right. She is also very eager to help students with questions.

Dr. G is amazing. This was by far the best class I've taken. She's very difficult and expects a lot from her students, but the hard work is completely worth it. You won't find a better Biochem professor around.
