Very difficult course, I had every intention of majoring in Chemistry before I took this class, now I hate it. But Dieter himself is a great person, always available to help his students, very helpful in his office hours. All the notes are posted online. Exams are very hard! You have to put in a real effort to do well in his class!

Klappy is the man! Always in his office for help. Follow his one hour rule. His exams are tough and you have to know your stuff to do well on them. Gonna miss this guy as I head off into the abyss of engineering.

MY FAVOURITE PROF THIS YEAR. He really knows what he's teaching and obviously enjoys it. His humour is great during class and he's awesome with extra help. I could tell he truly wanted me to succeed in the course and was as happy as I was when I did! Go over some high school chemistry notes, read the chapters and you'll do great! :)

He is a great prof, with a surprising sense of dead-pan humour. He is great in extra help, which you will generally need to do for the weekly assignments. His test can have tricks in them, things which you need time to consider. Knowing the material well is the best way to get through. He is definitely the best way to learn Chem first year.

Klapstein is a great 'coach' and person and probably the best the engineers get. His weekly assignments are 3-4 questions but they usually have one question that is impossible to do without seeing him. His midterms vary in difficultly depending on the class; they can be very hard. His finals are difficult. Sometimes dull material but great prof.

very fair prof, if you listen in class and study you should have no trouble on the exams. weekly assignments help grades. he is pretty dull and makes lame jokes but overall he is okay

he was an okay prof, i don't recommend asking questions in class cuz he'll probably just make you feel stupid. never really went for help but he didn't seem too bad in that department.

Dieter is an okay prof. I mean the class is advanced chemistry, his exams were fairly easy. Klapstein does hate stupid people though, and will make them feel stupid in class by asking them questions. I would recommend taking his course.

DK is an excellent prof, and although I didn;t do fantastic in the course, it had more to do with my lack of understanding of certain topics rather than the teaching. He truly cares about how you do, and if you put forth an effort in class, he will help you with absolutely any problem. I'd recommend him, just try to stay awake during those lectures
