Chem4A Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader"

I have never had a professor like her in any college. She is rude, manipulative, disorganized, and is always on her phone. She takes role during lecture and lab. Half the time her equations and labs are wrong, but she will give you a hard time if you are not perfect. Moody and a snob.

CHEM-02A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

Dr. Wilson is a great teacher. She covers everything you need to know for test and even prepares a check list beforehand. If students are afraid to approach her it's probably because she has a tendency to make you think instead of giving away the answer which I like. She really does strive to teach and not just get you through the class.

CHEM02A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I don't agree with the negative reviews. Dr. Wilson presents the lecture and lab material well. The PowerPoint presentations are simple and clear, and in lab, tips are written on the board. Additionally, the homework is online and there are unlimited attempts to solve the problems correctly. So far, I haven't had any problems with her.

CHEM2A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She seems confused about where she is going much of the time. She is pretentious. Difficult to approach with questions. Curt and dismissive. I think she's probably distracted by some other stuff because she doesn't seem very focused and it is difficult to follow her lectures.

Chem1234 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Keep up with the owl and make sure to get an A in the lab. Lab is easy, owl can be a PITA because the system is picky. I passed, however I pretty much put ZERO time in studying... I thought she was great in lab, she seems hard to approach but once you do she is a very nice person and she was always helpful.

Dr. WIlson was a good teacher, however, she did appear to always be busy and it was a bit intimidating to ask questions. However, if you take notes during class, print her lecture notes, and study for her class then you will do fine. Also, OWL problems are very helpful when preparing for exams. Her exams are basically from her notes and OWL.

CHEM02A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's not the kind of instructor with whom you have a chummy rapport, and she does not respond cheerily to questions. In fact, we all felt downright intimidated when we needed to ask for clarification or help. But she knows her subject well and is a very good teacher. She's not mean; in fact she can be very nice, even funny. Just very no-nonsense.

on the first day she said she would teach the class as if we'd never taken a chemistry class before. didn't happen. i worked hard and passed but she was no help. i did take her last lab of the day. when she didn't leave the room for an hour or more she was rushing people to finish. she knows her stuff...too bad she can't explain it to anyone else.

not very helpful in either lecture or lab. were expected to know what she was talking about without her explaining much at all. kind of snobby and moody as well. whatever you do don't take her final lab. she is always leaving the room and rushing people so she can leave early. hated the way she wrote tests too long and not enough time.

She is very busy, she is quick and very short.. Does not give you the impression that she can deal with people who do not have a passion for chemistry.

Chem12ab Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Nice professor though she gives off an air of constantly being busy and it affects how you get help, etc. She was always rushing things when I took 12ab, including lecture. Rushing her lectures made a difficult class worse, she presents the material well just a little fast. Sometimes she gets an attitude with people (me for one, but generally nice.

I didn't study at all for the class and earned a C. She seems to have an attitude towards people at times, wish I could have taken another teacher. The labs are fun, but you can take the class with any chem teacher.

Chemall 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 so awesome! I had her for 4 Chemistry 2a, 4a 12a and 12b, she does not like slackers and you better expect to work and study hard. She's clear in her teaching and I would not be a chem major had I not had her! She is the best and I wish I could take all my classes from her! I have never learned so much! If you want to learn, take her.
