"Clear grading criteria" "Gives good feedback" "Assignments galore"

Neth is a really good professor. Chemistry at UCONN is not easy but he is always there to help if you are confused if you seek out help. He responds well if you stop by his office hours. There is a lot of homework and work for this class but it does help prepare you for the exams. Read the chapters the night before lecture and you will do better.

1124-1126 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is a nice man but I would not suggest taking him for the three sequence chemistry course. It is no easier than the two sequence, it is actually more work and is more time consuming. Because you have 3 semesters to cover the same amount of material as the 2 semester course, it goes much more in depth and is a wasted extra semester.. Don't do it

"Participation matters" "Respected by students"

This is my 3rd semester with Dr. Neth. I wouldn't say the material is easy, but Dr. Neth gives students such a large amount of resources that its very feasible to do well. With all the TAs, you can almost always walk into the tutoring room and get one-on-one help. He also hosts review sessions, but he expects you to be prepared.

Neth makes sure that all his students understand the material and gives many opportunities to his students. He is an amazing professor, and he will make sure that you understand chemistry.

Not only is Dr. Neth one of the smartest professors at UConn, but he translates that very well to his teaching. The class is challenging and there is online work- that being said if its taking you anywhere close to 18hrs maybe reconsider the major that put you in this class. Its very doable and he is one of the most caring professors. Great class

Dr. Neth is really helpful and is a good lecturer. Lab is pretty easy if you have a good TA. The hardest part is the online work just because it's extremely time consuming.

CHEM 1124 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

It's a hard class but the worst part is the online work. You are required to complete OWLs and ALEKS each week. These can take anywhere from 3-18 hrs. The power points aren't very helpful and if it wasn't for the extra time spent with my TA, I would have failed. The exams are straightforward and closely resemble the practice exams given to you.

Difficult class but neth is definitely willing to help! The discussions are key and help A LOT! Last years practice exams are very similar to the exams he gives. Take advantage of resources such as the book that he wrote and the q center ( they help a lot !!!! ) and you will do well in the class!

Dr. Neth is by far the best gen chem professor you can get. His class is challenging, but if you put in the work it is more than fair. Additionally, he is always willing to help. I have developed an awesome rapport with this professor and he is one of the most helpful and intelligent people I know. Great for pre-med as he is bio based as well.

Awesome professor! Very helpful and always willing to answer questions. The online assignments can get annoying and tedious, but they are there to help you. Make sure you look at the previous year's exam, which he'll post, because it'll be very similar to your own!!

Dr. Neth truly wants his students to succeed. The material is difficult, but he offers an optional class each week for Q&A. The practice exam is a VERY good guide to the real exam. Always answer clicker questions in class to help your grade!

I'm in the three sequence chem and I love Dr. Neth. His examples in class are the problems on the quizzes and tests. He wrote the textbook and if you use it to study you can do really well. I had a hard time with chem in high school but there are so many resources to help you do well in this class. Especially the prac exams! You'll be fine!

Neth is a VERY good professor. He explains concepts very clearly and provides many examples in the powerpoints (which are online) to drill the material. He answers questions very thoroughly and his tests are EXACTLY like the practice. If you ace that, you'll do great on the test!

I had this professor last semester and again this semester, and will next semester (I'm in the three course chem program). Personally, I find his lectures useless. The only things I find at all helpful are discussions (of which he doesn't teach) and OWLs (I'm not sure what say he has in the design). He could be much, much better, but also worse.

This is probably one of the best professors for introductory and general chemistry at uconn. He explains everything in the best way possible and really helps out his students with office hours as much as possible. If you want to understand chemistry and get a good grade, then take him. He will help you get the best out of chemistry.
