CHEM1225 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Purdie is very funny! He can get off subject sometimes but you will learn the material. Pay attention to the diagrams he draw because sometime they may show up on the test. Go to class cause he takes randome attendance for bounus. He curves a lot on all of his test but that depends on how the class does. Good teacher!

He was one of the best chemistry professors I had. I thoroughly enjoyed his class. He sometimes gets off subject but will always go back to it soon. He has a Scottish accent but that doesn't make it hard to understand him. Very intelligent but also willing to help answer any question you have during or after class. Take him if you can!

Chemistry is a hard subject period but Dr. Purdie does great making it interesting and easier to understand. He's always available to answer questions. Do the study questions he suggest they help a lot and GO TO CLASS!! He will randomly take attendance and give bonus points that will help A LOT!!

This guy is funny if you're smart enough to get the jokes. His tests were impossible to do perfectly, but easy enough to get a good grade on.

Totally rude, especially if youre a freshman. I got out and got in Rockley's class, and even though I knew it would be a challenge, I learned a ton and laughed through every lecture. Stay away from this jerk and get Rockley or Gelder if possible.

tests are hard but go to lab, it will help your grade even though the TA thinks he is an engineer.

Maybe it was just my personal experience, but I had a horrible semester with him. He was very rude when I went to talk to him, and was very demeaning. Terrible.

He is a very good professor. He tells you on the first day of class that no one will fail his class (if you stick it out and do decently in the labs). He lives up to his word. I didn't make higher than a 48% on any of the 4 tests, but showed up for Lab, and I got a C in the class! He's really nice

This old chap is all about pleasing the ladies in class, plus the geezer is hardly audible from the back of the the room.
