I thought he was a good prof, he knows his chemistry. Hand writes his notes with some powerpoints. Be prepared to do most of your learning out of the textbook. Textbook is very good for this course.

Course is easy, prof is very bad. Doesn't seem to care at all about teaching, and only wants to talk on and on about industrial chemistry. That would be great if this course, general chemistry, was on industrial chemistry. It's not. Avoid at all costs if you actually enjoy chemistry.

Dr. Clark is a really interesting prof, i found his teaching to be very good, easy to follow. Plus he always links what you are doing in class to real world examples which I enjoyed. The course itself isn't even hard either, its mostly Chem30 stuff with extra topics added on. Would recommend Dr.Clark. STUDY for the final though, its hard!

Fairly easy course. First half is pretty much high school review but the end is much more difficult. For our semester, the notes were either handwritten or powerpoint. The handwritten slides are useless and are nearly impossible to read. Read the textbook and just do as many practice questions as possible.

I would recommend you stay at home and study from the textbook. The course isn't hard, but his teaching is very dull, I could never pay attention to him. He posts stuff on BB, which is very useful. Midterms were fair but long, final seemed really hard.

He is a great prof. He is enthusiastic however goes off topis really easily. He is just like an high school teacher. he goes over every single topic clearly! Attend the class and read the textbook. Final is hard!

I have to say that Dr.Clark was by far the worst prof that I had in my first year. If you actually plan on learning anything in class, and not teaching yourself the entire course, do not join his class. He keeps the same powerpoint slide up the whole time, and does not acknowledge it at all.

This was his first time teaching CHEM 201. He's good, explains the material clearly, often funny. But goes off-topic too much. I guess that can be accounted for a bad thing and a good thing.

Dr. Clark was a fantastic teacher, unfortunately he teaches what I thought was a very difficult course (although I found it very interesting and enjoyed it despite my mark). If you have the right answer he will give you the grade you deserve but it's a lot of memorization. And unfortunately you actually have to use the knowledge of the prereq.

Unfortunately, this is one of those courses where you just have to memorize blindly a whole lot of mechanics and processes (olefin refinery, Clauss process, Ziegler-Natta polymerization...). Key to getting an A: Memorize the 3 processes I mentioned above, plus two more and you will get an A on your midterm and final, as they have similar questions

Dr. Clark is a poor prof at best. He takes his teaching very casually. That is to say he has a somewhat structured lesson plan and delivers it haphazardly. I learned more from two lectures delivered by his colleague Dr. Sarah Bourke than I did in a couple months worth of his lectures.

Dr. Clark is always trying to teach knowledge in an interesting way (in CHEM 357). And he likes to find out how much sdudents have understood as long as he has time. .......... He likes coffee, but he does not like emails. :)
