I can see why many people on here don't like Dr. Terry. Honestly though, he cares about his students and wants you to succeed. He can be cold at times but if you go to class/lab and put in effort you can make it through.

Chem370 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Horrible about sums it up. He consistently makes kids look stupid for asking questions, laughs at you when you dont understand something, etc. All of the reviews on here are true. Takes lecture powerpoints straight from the book. Now he uses OWL for online assignments so he has to do even less work. tests are incredibly hard. Dont take, ever.

I don't wear my seat belt driving to school because I want to die before I can make it to this class.

One of the WORST teachers I've ever had. He thinks he's better than everyone else and is incredibly rude: he belittles you for asking questions, grades homework ridiculously, speaks in monotone and laughs at you for not understanding. DO NOT TAKE HIM.

chem101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He can be degrading and criticizes people who ask questions. The only upside is that he curves( which is needed). I would recommend taking another teacher if possible.

CHEM101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

horrible professor, gets angry and frustrated if no one answers but crucifies anyone who answers even the slightest bit incorrectly. Teaches the book verbatim, blames our low test scores on students not studying. When asked a question he goes off on a tangent and doesn't answer the original question. do NOT take his class

Dr. Terry is the worst professor I've ever had. He made me feel like every question was a stupid question. Tests were also very hard. Unless you're a genius at chemistry DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS.

Awful teacher. The class average for tests in my class was below 50% for all tests and he refused to curve anything. Do not take him if you can help it.

This teacher is really hard. He treats his students like other scientists who understand what he is talking about. The way he teachers is not an introductory class.

Dr. Terry scared me. He was big and intimidating. He doesn't take any crap at all. It's hard to pay attention in his class, his notes are straight out of the book. Literally word for word. At the begining of the semester I did good on his quizzes. But his tests were hard and his quizzes became harder. Do not recommend him at all.
