CHEM-100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Hirzy is painfully boring and it does not help that he teaches a class that no one wants to take. Having said that, his exams are super easy and the lab component of the course is similarly a breeze. An annoying class, but an easy B+ or higher if you keep up with the work.

CHEM-100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Hirzy is extremely kind and intelligent. The study questions are the same or very similar to the exams. Sometimes explains material that is far more complicated that the exams so do not worry. Office hours are really useful

CHEM 110 210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Prof Hirzy is a very intelligent, very kind man, but he has forgotten how to teach. He goes off onto tangents and is not very clear as to the actual material. I have skipped every class except tests, taught myself from the book and homework, and aced the class. He does have very interesting life experiences though (Monsanto, EPA) and loves to share

CHEM100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His class lecture is boring and rushed at the same time. He knows his stuff very well but he usually rants about environmental issues. His tests are straight-up copies of his review sheets but in-class explanations are sometimes vague and other times nonexistent. Quite dull to be honest.
