1021 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Would take again" "There for you"

She's a very good prof. Very clear on lectures and information needed for tests. She basically goes off of the information in the text book. The tests aren't very difficult if you know what your doing. Just take notes during class, do the homework and study and you will be fine.

CHEM 1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Before taking this class I thought it would be extremely difficult, but I felt Vicki did a very good job of thoroughly going through everything. She posted lectures online, gave a ton of examples and had practice problems for the test. To do well in this class, I think its important to go to a lot of lectures and labs. Also, do the study guides!

Chem 1061 1062 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very Intelligent, helpful. Makes the lessons very clear. Tests are difficult but if you study and listen you will do fine, and it makes the standardized test a walk in the park! Highly recommend her to both 1061 and 1062 students!

Chem 1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Fairly intellegent individual but clearly doesn't like to instruct. If approached with a question during lab, she will seem annoyed. Overall decent I suppose.

CHEM 1061 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C

The hardest I have worked for four credits in my life. The tests are extremely hard and tries to trick you. Over half the class was failing the class. Thank god the final was a standardized final it was refreshing compared to her tests that are unnecessarily hard. I would not take her.

CHEM 1061 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

Took this class last semester and I loved this teacher!!! She goes over everything you need to know in class and posts all lectures online. Exams aren't easy but she awards LOTS of partial credit. If you have a question she will always help you out with a problem. Switched to a Chem major because of her! Taking her again this semester!

You learn everything you need to know in class! So show up and you do not need to use the book at all. She is nice, has little homework and will help you if you ask. I would take her class again.

CHEM1061 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Doesn't really do the best job of explaining complicated stuff (all of chemistry), but knows what she's doing. She's good at helping people when they're stuck on assignments and such. Exams are really hard and a ton of studying and extra work by yourself is vital.

CHEM1062 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Vicki's lectures make so much sense. She does a great job explaining things in understandable ways. She is always available in her office if you need extra help. Her tests are a good challenge, but never unfair. She grades her tests and labs as fast as lightning so you always know how you are doing. Great instructor.

CHEM1161 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A little awkward, but very nice and helpful. She posts audio lectures online so you don't always have to show up to class. The tests are hard, just make sure you do all of the recommended practice she gives. Gives extra credit. Outstanding at learning names. I never raised my hand and she doesnt take attendence, but she somehow remembered my name!

She is a good teacher. The tests were a little hard and she goes a bit to fast. Taking notes is hard because she writes on the board faster than I can write on paper. Read the book before hand and you will do fine in her class.

Loved this professor! Super helpful whenever needed, even with homework. Also very understanding. I had to miss two tests and she was very flexible with me. Communicate with her and you'll love her!

chem1061 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I loved chemistry before I took her 1061 class. The material she taught in class had nothing to do with what was on the test. I had to teach myself the material in order to even pass it. She is a nice person, but a terrible professor.

Wants students to succeed. Extremely available for extra help, even on graded homework. Very personable. Great knowledge of topic. Can be hard to follow in lecture, but provides substantial outlines (incl examples) that made it easier to follow along (also records/posts lectures). Offered extra credit when class needed it.

I took Vicki for both 1061 and 1062. She is extremely helpful when you have questions in class or out. Her tests can challenge you but if you keep up on homework and look over the review material it isn't that bad.
