Don't take him. Just don't, he is very nice and wants to help but is TERRIBLE at lectures. If you haven't taken a lot of chemistry before college then you will have a rough time in this class like I did. He writes very small and talks softly in monotone. Very hard to pay attention. Use the online book if you want to learn anything.

he's very helpful one on one but its frustrating when you have to get help on every single thing he teaches during lecture. lecture is honestly a waste of time, do mastering chem and the old tests and you'll get an A regardless of if you go to class. if you didn't take AP in high school it will be tougher but not impossible. tests aren't too hard if you look over the old ones. wouldn't recommend, but if you get stuck with him just do the online work and look over the tests and you'll be fine.

Dr. Lieb is confusing to many but I believe that their issue is that they don't read the book beforehand. He answers any question you have but is not the best choice if you never had Advanced Chemistry in high school.

Lieb rambles on about nothing during class. The lecture time is useless and ifyou can follow his thought process I say kudos to you. I do not recommend him. The tests are easy, but you ether know the information beforehand or teach yourself or you are screwed.

Very easy professor. If you've had AP chem you will be fine. He isn't very clear but the MasteringChemistry helps, so do it. He'll try to answer any questions you have. I never went to office hours but I've heard he's great one-on-one. He is a very nice guy and I liked him as a person, but not really as a professor. I'm taking someone else for 106.

Dr. Lieb is so incredibly intelligent, but is bad at teaching a ton of people. Go to him for 1 on 1 help & he will give you every second he can. I started with a D and ended up with a B+. He really wants students to succeed.

Leib is a terrible "teacher" if you can even call him that. He makes many mistakes while teaching so you never know if what he says is actually true. He will also go off on tangents a lot and waste many classes over-complicating basic procedures. calculations. I can honestly say that I didn't learn a thing in his class. +youhavetodoallMasteringChem

He's not the greatest prof... He doesn't really go over the concepts very well and doesn't explain things thoroughly. He sometimes makes mistakes in the problems he does on the board, too! He's really nice and the tests are generally easy, but you basically have to teach yourself because he just makes it more confusing.

To start with, he is VERY nice. But beyond that, this class is very frustrating if you did not take AP chem in high school. Problems on the board are only half-way done on the board, content is flown through, and concepts are always blurred. Better off teaching yourself. Avoid him as a teacher if you can :/

Easy grader, but that is the only way you will pass. He is very hard to hear and writes very small. His voice is very monotonous and puts me to sleep. He is nice but doesn't know how to teach a large lecture. A LOT of homework. He only does examples and doesn't explain the concepts.

You can barely hear this teacher and he is too smart to be teaching this class! DO NOT TAKE HIM! You teach yourself EVERYTHING!Very inconsistent grader and made me feel stupid when I questionedy grade on a test when I was right! Doesn't give extra credit either! You will be beyond frustrated in this class when you have to teach yourself!

Worst teacher I have ever had. Flies through the material and does not review. Tests are really difficult if you are not experienced in chemistry. Avoid taking his class at all costs if you did not take AP Chem.

He is very nice. It is hard to understand him though. Yes, sit in the front.

Definitely harder than when I had him for quantum. All tests including final are take home. Material is very hard. Teaches more or less fine. There is a lot of math so if you hate calculus...drop the course immediately. Sit up front so you can hear. Writes on the board rather beautifully haha. Brilliant man, very quirky. Beats hopkins by far

Adorable professor. He's really nice. Kind of quiet, but if you have a chemistry background, then you will be just fine taking him for any general chemistry class. He teaches the material rather well. Go to him if you need help, he is there. Gives extra credit too...sometimes a lot.

Dr. Lieb is one of the most boring professors ever. But he gives out a bunch of extra credit. I never got above an 87 on a test and ended up with an A- in the class. Not sure how that works out...but I'm not complaining. If you want an easy chemistry professor take him. He is really smart, but can't teach very well

Very easy class. He gives you the tests from the past two years for practice. Sometimes his lectures are a little boring, but he's always willing to help.

He's a nice man, but not the best teacher. Sometimes he would go too in depth into topics and we would run out of class time without covering everything. His tests are fairly easy as long as you review.

If you taken AP chem & got a 4 or 5 on the AP test, class should be a breeze. His quizzes are VERY easy. He gives you past test to look at and the past test are similar to the test he gives in class. He will occasionally: teach you more than you need to know, make typos when writing notes. Sit in the front he is quiet and hard to hear at times.
