Dr. Calhoun's dry personality is hilarious. He explains difficult concepts well and definitely cares about student progress. If you do the assignments and questions in the back of the book you're golden!

Dr. Calhoun is an awesome guy! He's always willing to help. His midterms were extremely easy, although the exam was a little tricky, but fine if you put them time into understanding the more difficult material. Can't wait to take another class with him next term. Also, the textbook is expensive but definitely worth the money

Everyone says his finals are super hard, but the material at the end of the course is challenging, and the test is a fair reflection of that. If you can do the textbook exercises, you will be fine on the tests. Plus his dry sense of humor is the BEST EVER!! Compared to other profs in science, this prof is organized, helpful and has fair tests.

Larry is a very boring man. Not enthusiastic about the material. First midterm was hard, second was very easy. He slaughtered us with the final, and then had to curve the marks. Exclusively uses a test bank that does not seem to match the text used for the course. Some say he is helpful if you go to his office. He is a nice guy, just boring.

Shouldn't be teaching, if that's what he's paid to do. I know my chemistry and with him I got lost.

Dr. Calhoun's notes are organized and prepared before class. The first two midterms were really easy but the final was harder. This was mostly because the last material was harder and there was way more stuff to know. So study a LOT before the final. He will answer questions. The textbook is great. Make sure to do the problems in the text.

i thought he was great teacher, went over things slowly and in detail for the most part. Chem itself is hard and requires alot of studying i find.

As previously said, his tests are very long. I found myself finishing the moment the class ended. However, don't be alarmed. He teaches extremely well. Has funny, but dry, witty humor. Does well especially for a class of 300. Exams are very fair, and goes out of his way with tut's to help. A+!

He's kinda boring, and he doesn't know much basic chem, but he's awesome at teaching the physics/chem stuff!! He's also approachable and a nice guy.
