Worst teacher. Arrogant and only teaching to make himself feel like he is in control of making his students life miserable. No matter how much you study for this course and understand the material you will not receive the grade you deserve because of his grading Take my word and do not EVER take this professor. You learn better by teaching yourself

He is an amazing guy. If you are not majoring in the medical or chemical field, then I would not suggest that you take him. He wants all his students to know the basics so you will be able to apply your knowledge anywhere you go. He is always available to help and he recommends that students email him if you have any questions!!! Great guy

TAKE MARTIN IF U WANT TO LEARN & KICK BUTT ON STANDARDIZED TESTS. He's hard & difficult ONLY if U DON'T KEEP UP w/ studying & hw material. Organic's a difficult course in general so just stay on top of it n you'll be fine! He's a great teacher! WARNING: Make sure NOT to go to the lion's den (his office) to ask questions if you're not prepared!

I would neither take him again for o chem II nor suggest him to any my friend. Before i decided to take him i asked around 7 people, 6 of them told me don't take him. But i took him. I put the study and try on my part. But... You may try asking people in chem. to see what they talk about him.

His test is difficult. Not a big deal. You have to study every day in his class. Not a big deal. The only horrible problem is the way he grades your exam or quiz. 5points for each correct mechanism of a reaction, he will take off 2.5 point if you forget a lone pair for N even though you have right mechanism or product. Don't take him

He teaches you everything as you are a graduate student. His exam weights so difficult because he always asks you to fully explain why. Also, he grades dry and hard. Don't take the teacher since your grade depends on his mood. I would never take him again.

He focuses so much on theory and concept. His exam is ridiculous as a math teacher asking you to solve for x, and then write a paragraph to fully explain why. You have a correct solution for x and explanation how you get there. But if you don't mention the domain in your explanation (he think it s important), you will lose 50% credit.

The BEST professor I've had at Lamar! He knows his stuff & wants nothing more than for his students to learn! Since switching to the board, his lectures are the best!! Although I didn't do great in his class an A is very possible. The only reason students rant about him being "hard" is because they don't put in their part. GREAT PROFESSOR!!

AMAZING PROF. He is hilarious, but often at the expense of others. Take his comments with a grain of salt, he's a joker, but he means well. Tests are hard, but not impossible. I would recommend doing practice problems(which he provides for you)over & over again. He's willing to help & it's obvious he wants students to do well.

He is a good professor in terms of he knows what hes talking about and he can communicate it easily. However he loves to get exceptions to the rule and put them on tests for a certain theorem. Also he grades too cut and dry you hardly get partial-credit for anything which is a complete downside to his class, definitly dont take this guy!

I took the class, he does make you learn EVERY concept...however, he teaches it as if you too, have a PhD in organic chemistry. I will say this when I took him I made a D, but I can honestly say that because I took him, now that I am re-taking it with a diff. prof, what I learned in his class helps me ALOT with the professor I'm taking now!

Material is very interesting, his mood however determines your grade and what he "thinks" you deserve, even if you have the right answer on paper, take tests in pen and give up your life, Don't take from him unless you hate yourself! and I passed the first time...

Not as bad as people say he is. If you like to be challenged, you'll do fine in his course. Although very condescending, he's funny and this helps to keep the class interesting. He has all the questions from his previous old exams online ;Do all of these and you'll do fine.

Don't ask for questions unless you are a pretty girl. He doesn't believe in helping his students. It is impossible to finish his tests and everyone fails and he does not grade on a curve not that it would help.

Very easy to follow, considering the slides he gives you. The only reason this class is hard is because of the nature of the material (organic is generally hard to do anywhere you go). He does everything he could possibly do to help you out. I have never had a professor that cared so much for the success of his students.

He is a funny guy, which makes class kind of interesting. his tests are hard, but not unreasonable. STUDY, STUDY, STUDY by doing practice problems over and over and over again. Then one more time. that's the way to study for his tests. Class notes are easy to follow because of his slides. i would take him over Hansen.
