"Lectures are long" "Gives good feedback"

Great professor and has helped me succeed in a subject that I am horrible at. I finally understood chemistry and he does a fine job of teaching! Lots of extra credit and curves and is extremely nice and kind. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

"There for you" "Respected by students"

Really nice professor. His classes may get a bit boring but he can honestly teach and is REALLY nice. He is there to help all the time and very easy going. He almost always curves the tests so I would recommend him.

There is A LOT of extra credit. Study often and do the homework assignments the same day the material is covered. Don't wait till the last minute.

YOU MUST TAKE HIM! He will be a blessing to your semester! He helps so much it's crazy. And you must come to class to get the clicker points which help your grade so much!

"Participation matters" "Would take again" "Big time extra credit"

Uses Iclicker heavily. Lectures can be boring sometimes. OWL homework takes time but that's with every chem class. Big on extra credit and curving exams. Nice guy. Go to si and do owl before the test you shall pass

"Big time extra credit" "Would take again" "Amazing lectures"

I. LOVE. DR. HUCHITAL. This man is amazing & a fantastic teacher (granted, I'm a geek & the majority of the material was v. easy for me). He puts all the notes online, offers 100 points of extra credit & is extremely responsive even if you email him on a Saturday afternoon. I think you would have to work harder to fail than to pass this course.

"Tests are tough" "Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Chem 1 is not an easy class it requires a lot of studying, but he gives reasonable curves, a good amount of extra credit, and clicker points. Truthfully, I never went to class I went to the off campus reviews at ISA and that's the reason I have an A in the class right now. Textbook isn't used but you need the access code.

"Get ready to read" "Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass."

As long as you pay attention in class and read the textbook, you should get A's on all of the tests. Takes some studying, but very achievable.

"Tests are tough" "Big time extra credit" "Lectures are long"

I enjoyed Chemistry with Huchital, but I must say I relied more heavily on myself and SI to understand a majority of the material because he was not always clear in his examples although this was not always the case. He is very helpful if you go to his office hours, but I couldn't make use of these since they conflicted with my other classes.

"Inspirational" "Amazing lectures" "Would take again"

His tests require you to understand concepts rather then be able to remember them like a parrot. Dr. H is very helpful in the fact that the Iclicker questions model those that will appear on the exams and walks you through each answer and explains why and how the choices are correct or incorrect. Take him if you actually want to learn chemistry.

Dr. Huchital is AWESOME! Can't wait to take him again for CHM 2046. He is super helpful and has been in the field for over 20 years. Super sweet and funny. Class is chem so its pretty difficult to begin with but he makes it not a total nightmare and explains everything! You will have to work for your grade but you will pass and iclicker everyday!

Very nice, tries to help as much as possible; puts notes online. THIS CLASS REQUIRES A LOT OF STUDYING. Online homework is essential to understanding the material, do not wait until the end to do it. Drops lowest test grade, usually curves, & online homework has very helpful extra credit. Don't take in summer, WAY too much info for 6 weeks.

Huchital was an amazing teacher. Definitely take him for General Chemistry. He also has an amazing TA named Jay who is superb at teaching. He is only an undergrad, yet he talks like he has a Ph.D in Chemistry. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Huchital is a good professor and fives a bunch of extra credit. Had to study a lot for the exams but he curves. Got a 69,85,88,83 and 100 on the final. He takes questions directly from the problem sets earlier during the semester for his final! Got an A in the class.

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

Dr. Huchital is a fantastic professor! Chemistry is a hard subject. However, Dr. Huchital teaches with such passion and simplicity! Lectures go super fast but he provides notes before class. USE HIS OFFICE HOURS! Go to the SI sessions, review sessions, do OWL, read the textbook and you will do excellent! Tons of extra credit! Great class overall!

CHM 2046 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A-

Chem 2 is crazy intense compared to Chem 1. Dr. Huchital is very generous in that if you underperform on his exams theres always ways to make up the points. Pass at least 1 exam with a grade of B or C and do all/most of OWL plus get Clicker points and you are guaranteed an A or A-. I got an A in Chem 1 and B+ in Chem 2 but could have worked harder!

I am already accepting the fact that I will not have as good as a Chemistry Professor as Dr. Huchital in the future. He did what he could to throw the material out there. He definitely gave plenty of extra credit opportunities to boost your grade up by one letter grade. Take advantage of this. Received an A in the class.

Took Dr Huch for Chem 1 & 2. Chem 2 is extremely difficult...but he is SO helpful and offers a lot of opportunities for grade boosting. Get your iClicker pts and KEEP UP WITH OWL! I thought I was going to get a C and I ended up with an A-! VERY generous & understanding. Take Dr Huchital and pace yourself with the material. Good luck :)

Dr. Huchital is a wonderful professor who always takes his time answering any question either in class, in his office, or by email. His exams requires ample studying and going to class is required for iclicker points. He gives plenty of oppurtunities to do well with the HW and extra credit not to mention a curve. Just don't slack off!

Chem 2 is no joke. You have to study and put time into the class. Huchital's test are brutal. But if you go to the FREE reviews that huchital provides (held by a Jay) and do practice problems you will be more than fine. Go to class for I clicker, and do every single problem on owl. Huch is very fair with grading! Super nice guy! Chem is just hard!!
