chem 126 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Quantum is a tough class and I don't think she's the best teacher, however at least she tries! She's super smart and thinks we are too...so some of her explanations go over our heads. But she holds extra weekend sessions to go over lecture material which help a lot. Her exams are also very fair. However, to do well you have to show up to class.

CHEM 126 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Kim makes you think she likes you, but she doesn't. She is completely incapable of teaching, cannot explain anything, knows nothing. Does she have a BS? Worst professor ever, probably got hired because a minority female. Unorganized lectures that go nowhere. Took her frustrations out on us on the final. Can't talk to her without her getting mad.

Difficult class for sure. Pop quizzes and in-class questions. Keep up with the hw but also REREAD lecture materials for the quizzes (I could have done so much better on quizzes had I reread the lectures). Exams easier than expected. Good prof overall. I got A's in both 126 and 127 with her.

CHEM127 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very methodical class in terms of getting good grades. The quizzes are derived straight from the hw so as long as you do the hw and understand them. The exams are avg in difficulty, she drops hints here and there about what she may ask. Class was painfully boring but she was a good lecturer in terms of presenting info not entertainment.

CHEM6B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She really has a passion for chemistry. Be prepared to work hard and do a lot of calculations. Her midterms and final were mostly representative of the lectures/book and had good curves. Its not an easy class, but is not impossible either, just devote a lot of time to reading and understanding the formulas and concepts.

Chem6B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The class wasn't that bad. Midterms were out of class and even on a friday night which sucked, but overall the tests were pretty fair. The final was pretty much questions straight out of lecture, even using the exact same numbers. I still felt I learned something and overall she taught well.
