CHEM 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

McIndoe is awesome! He makes every class a joy to come to. He also teaches material really clearly and he's really funny. Fair midterms, but the final was a little tough though (he's not the only prof who makes the final for this course). Of all the 1st year chemistry profs McIndoe is by FAR the best. I recommend him over any 1st year chem prof!

LOVED HIM! had the whole class laughing. even if you don't like chem you'll enjoy his lectures because he adds a lot of humour and does many experiments in class. the course itself is not necessarily easy but work hard and you can get good results.

Dr. McIndoe has an exceptional classroom demeanour, and is very helpful and accepting of after class questions. I wasn't into Chemistry at all before this class (course requirement), but he drew me in and made me interested. Highly recommended.

Great professor, kept my interest throughout the class. Funny guy, and has great stories and ways of teaching. Makes a hard course relatively easy. He teaches the concept exceptionally well and clearly. Would recommend taking the class. Midterms are somewhat difficult, but if you study should be fine

CHEM 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher and a funny guy. The lecture notebook works SO well for taking notes and for studying later on, I actually enjoy taking notes. Lectures never feel rushed or too slow, and clicker questions are amusing and often a good challenge. My "Chemistry: The Central Science" textbook hasn't even been opened though. Not at all necessary.

Best prof i have had so far. Very funny, very clear and an overall great guy. His notes and lectures are easy to follow. If you listen in lectures, study the notes and do the practice questions he has made for you, then you will do great of tests and in the course. Highly recommend! There is no better!

This prof made Chemistry enjoyable for me. He's extremely clear in lectures and delivers all the material you need to know for the exam, always taking ample time to review in class before each midterm. He seemed to genuinely care about his student and was very helpful out of class.

Great prof. Provides everything you need to know to do well in the lectures. Hardly used the textbook at all. Explains concepts well and adds humor to lectures. And a great accent :)

Awesome prof. I have never been much of a chem person, but he made it work for me. Funny, clear, and friendly - he gives you everything you need to do well, and he honestly seems to want you to! I went to other profs' review sessions too, and he was undoubtedly the best, in my opinion. Take his class; you won't regret it!

Fantastic prof. I had absolutely no interest in chemistry before I took this class with him, and now I'm considering making it my major. Best prof I've had so far.

This guy is the bomb! I never had much of an interest in chemistry in high school but McIndoe made chemistry enjoyable. Hands down my favorite prof I've had so far. He wants students to succeed and cares more than most profs do with regards to students. He prepared the class for the midterms and the final. I hope to get him again down the road.
