Honors. She is an amazing teacher. tests were extremely difficult but she makes sure you absolutely know the subject. also the classes were fun and interesting. if you take her honors course, make sure you read the book and make sure you have a lot of free time to study.

If you are going to take her, be warned, her class takes a lot of effort to pass. Studying daily is a must, and it is important to do the back of the book problems. If chemistry is your worst subject I suggest not taking her. Although she does explain herself clearly, for the not so chemically inclined it is a lot of material to take in at once.

After the first exam (which I failed) I hated her. But then I realized that it wasn't her it's was that I was going to have to put a LOT of work into this class. DO THE PRACTICE PROBLEMS. I got the solutions manual and it helped exponentially for the next exam. I ended up with an A in the class. She's really nice. It's just almost impossible material but doable if you put the time in.

Dr. Chamely is a really sweet lady, but she is not ready to teach yet. She certainly knows as much as her students do and she plays the role of a narrator who reads the textbook to you. If you want to learn organic chemistry take someone else. I studied ALOT and ended up getting an A in her class. She doesn't even make her own exams.

I learned so much in this class! Dr. Chamely is not an easy teacher, but if you study, read, and so the problems in the back of each chapter you can pass her class with an A. She is very helpful in office hours and really cares about her students. I was challenged a lot and loved going to her class. Do the Back of the book problems!!!

VERY HARD CLASS. This class takes so much work! be prepared for that. A lot of reading and memorization and PRACTICE. I did not put in the required effort and failed. She is super fast in lecture but very helpful and willing to be there for her students! Exams very difficult. Cum final and national exam. Disscussion useless.

Absolutely sweet lady. She really cares about chemistry. The tests were extremely hard, almost unfairly so and the class average is very low. Taught straight out of the book. The extra credit is not a freebie by any means if it is given then you have to earn it by knowing the material. Tough class hands down.

Avoid her!! Worst professor for Organic!! Her notes are straight from the book. Her tests were impossible to pass. If you want to learn and pass Orgo, take Dr. West.

I would recommend Dr. Chamely-Wiik's 2051C course; she brings enthusiasm to the lectures, and the small class size is helpful in getting specific questions answered. She expects a lot from her students, however, in both the lab and lecture components. Know that it's a challenging course before you go in, and form a study group!

Dr. Chamely is enthusiastic about teaching. However, I would certainly not recommend her for Organic. Her notes came straight from the book. She does not know the material well enough to teach it. The class was always correcting her. Tests are hard. I got an A, but studied a ton!

Dr. Chamely is an awesome teacher, I would recommend taking her if you get a chance. She is not easy though, to do well in OrgoChem 1 you must read ahead, reread, & study ALOT. She really cares if you do well & even gives in-class extra credit, so go to class! Buy a model kit, you can use them on the tests (which are REALLY HARD, by the way).

Dr. Chamely is a nice lady, and is always willing to answer a question. However, her tests are DIFFICULT, in order to do well, you pretty much have to have no life, or have a natural talent for the subject. Very rigorous and should be prepared to study EVERYDAY if you really want an A

Dr. Chamley-Wiik is such a sweet lady. She's very helpful and really cares about her students. She doesn't gloss over the fact that you have to study on your own and work hard. Doing OWL and the Back of the book problems are KEY! You have to do your work. If you know your stuff her tests are very fair. You have to pay attention or you'll make stupi

Dr. Chamely is an excellent professor. She's not easy, but she does make the subject very clear. She's always available and willing to help students. You can really tell that she wants the students to understand the material. I would definitely recommend taking her, but I would NOT recommend taking the advanced chem 2 course.

DO NOT TAKE THE ADVANCED CHEMISTRY CLASS! This is the hardest class you will ever take and it is definitely not worth 6 credits. You are better off taking regular chem 2 and Eng and getting 7 credits instead of 6. If you like 3 different teachers teaching you and 1500 word papers almost every week along with test and labs then this class is for you

Dr. Chamely is THE BEST! She is so knowledgable about the subject and is always willing to help, and is very friendly. If you want to learn the insides and outs of Gen Chem, take it with her! I got an A from her notes alone, which she posts on blackboard so you can print them before class. Very helpful! A+++ teacher

I dont know what everyone else is saying. she barely curves - like 5-6% and claass average was 54 so she got it up to C-. This means that the other half of the class cant use this class for their major.she teaches good, but tests are extremely hard..most difficult class I've had.

She is all over the place in lecture and has a hard time with focusing on a specific topic. She is a decent teacher though, but the book that was used is absolutely horrible and teaches you very little. Go to lecture and take good notes and you'll get an A or a B.
