Bruce is awesome. His tests are long and difficult, but he does a pretty good job of making the class entertaining. Going to class isn't mandatory, but he'll notice if you don't go and then won't be willing to help your grade. Get to know him, he'll always help and if he knows youre really trying, he'll bump up your grade if it needs it.

Love him!!! He knows his stuff and teaches it in such a way that you retain it. He is also very entertaining but his tests can be long.

Bruce is the man. Class isn't mandatory to go to, puts everything on angel. Does a jeopardy as a review on first 3 exams (not final). Tests are easy. Easy GN for non-chem majors

Had Bruce for Chem 110 and 111. He is by far the best Chem teacher I've ever had. He knows what he is talking about and explains everything clearly. Get to know him, he is a great guy. He still knows all of his chem lab students by first name two semesters later!

Bruce is the best for Chem lab. He gives some open book quizzes that are really easy. The lab reports are due the week after the lab ends and he grades them fairly. I got an A- and had no clue what I was doing.

THE BEST TECHER. class itself is not easy, but doing homework helps, also go to learning center. he is very nice and funny, but not that helpful. he will never answer your question straight, but rather make you to come up with it. most of the kids got C in his class,of course there are lower grades, as well as higher. curves a lot.

Where do I start? I think that the class was hard. He don't give extra credit and the material was boring. I must admit that he is a nice person but th class stinks! Everyone in my class failed except for the lucky ones like myself that escaped with a C.

Bruce is a really cool guy, very informal in his teaching. He does expect students to do work, but he's very generous at the end of the course if he thinks you've put forth a good honest effort. Not the easiest of all classes, but not too hard either. If you're planning on scheduling CHEM 12, make sure you schedule him.

He's a really nice teacher but I know I had to learn off of my friends and he teaches really quick so if you dont come prepared knowing the material beforehand you're going to be very confused and he really expects you to remember everything you learned from CHEM011.. i dont think he's much of a teacher but more of a reviewer =/

Bruce is a great guy and an awesome teacher!!! There are no hidden agendas with him. He gives you notes that make things really clear and he curves which is especially good if you have alot of dummies in your class!!! Much work required to get an A but not much for a C...
