Chem 121 and122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took Orgill for Chem 121 and 122! It was the smartest choice I ever made. She is an amazing professor and does everything she can to help you succeed. Her notes are broken down so that the material is easier to understand! I wish she taught O-Chem!

CHEM 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had Orgill for 121 and 122, and I'm glad to have gotten her. She gives you all the tools you need to succeed. She is very flexible since she is readily available to help you online or during office hours. The only thing I didn't like was that her exams in 122 were all short answers unlike 121 with multiple choice and short answer.

Dr. O is awesome. The tests are written, but just answer the questions EXACTLY like how she teaches them to you, and you'll get an A.

CHEM 122 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Dr. O is just as awesome in this class as in 121. Be aware: all the exams are written (no more M/C) and her and her graders are much tougher. Less chapters so the amount that you have to know have to do is tougher. Keep up, do the practice problems and hw, and you'll get an A no problem.

CHEM 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Orgill makes the class super easy to understand and fills in the PowerPoints with the class. If you print out the slides and go to lecture you will pass! Do the extra problems she posts on Webcampus and the tests will be easy! Didn't use textbook much but probably would have only benefited more from it.

Dr. Orgill is absolutely the best science professor I've had! She has this cheer and light to her smile, and is very clear in her explanations. I really enjoyed her teaching style and her helpfulness when I don't fully understand the concepts. I definitely recommend!

CHEM 121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Amazing teacher. Her lectures are super clear, and they mirror what is going to be on the tests. She's always available for office hours, too. Don't take this as the class being a cake walk, however. You need to do the practice problems she assigns if you want to do well, but otherwise, fairly easy and painless class.

Dr. Orgill is an excellent professor. She is passionate about the subject and explains concepts clearly. She wants students to succeed and constantly hints to concepts that will be on the exam. She is also very funny and incorporates quirky examples into her lectures. If you study the lecture notes you will get a good grade on her exams.

What a wonderful professor. She's very clear in her lectures and what she wants you to know for exams. The class is no breeze through the park, but she practically makes it painless with everything she provides to help you succeed. Highly recommended!

This wasn't my favorite subject but Dr. Orgill managed to make it (almost) painless. She's a great teacher, very helpful in every way, and the fastest grader I have ever seen. Nothing but positives for this professor.

She is awesome! Take her class if given the opportunity. She is crystal clear in everything she says and exams/homework/quizzes are not ridiculously difficult. Show up to class, participate, ask questions if needed and you'll pass.

I was nervous to take this class because I had never taken chem before. Dr. O showed interesting ways to learn the difficult material and always encouraged questions/in-class interactions. If you don't get something, go to her office hours! She's interested in helping you learn and always has treats :)

CHEM123 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Coming out from high school AP Chem class, I would say that Dr. Orgill is THE BEST! She explains it in a way that can be easily understood by every students. She gives out extra credit for the pre-class problems. And random group quizzes. Even though I'm not required to take the exams, I still go to her lecture for more understanding. Awesome prof!

GREAT teacher. She provides so much help. She sets up discussion boards on her website and is willing to help you. Do Practice Problems, it will make her exams seem easy. I highly recommend her for Chem 122. Plus, she is always in a happy mood. There is never a dull moment in her class.

The best professor I have ever had. Excellent PowerPoints, notes and teaching style. Tests are difficult but she tells you what you need to know. Lots of opportunity for grade improvement in the form of group and out-of-class quizzes. I cannot recommend this professor enough!

Professor Orgill makes chemistry easy to learn. If you go to the lectures, you will do great on the exams! If you don't... you might not do so good. But go to class! She makes it fun, so you want to be there. If you can choose your professor for 122, take her class!

Great professor! BEST chem teacher at UNLV. She is helpful and gives out candy if you visit her during office hours. The lectures are interactive and clear to the point. Chem 122 is easier than 121, but you will still have to work hard to get the A. No curve, and is very strict about the grade cut offs.
