"Amazing lectures" "Hilarious" "There for you"

I take his chem 103 this semester and I really like him. His lectures are pretty hilarious. In the last lecture of this semester, he had some lipton teas and a small gift for the icliker championship. This is really touching. All in all, you aren't gonna to miss him if you can choose. You wouldn't regret your option at the end of semester.

"Tests are tough" "Amazing lectures" "Assignments galore"

He posts his lectures online before the actual lectures which are so helpful. He is funny and interesting and seems to really care about the students despite having huge class sizes. He's visiting UW Madison for only a year but I wish he'd stay! He's an amazing teacher.

"Respected by students" "Assignments galore" "Hilarious"

Really funny professor, makes lectures interesting and gets you interested. He assigns recordings to watch for homework which he then basically repeats in actual lecture, so information you need to know is usually really clear. Also loves logicconcept clicker questions, and learn to love MasteringChemistry homework assignments he loves them.

Paul is the best professor I have ever had! He's understanding, honest, knowledgeable, helpful hilarious, and British! He has note packets, quizzes, labs, and Mastering Chemistry homework. He will make you LOVE chemistry if you don't already. I wish he'd teach O-Chem as well :(

Paul is an incredible teacher! If you want to learn Gen chem well, and enjoy class, make registering for one of his sections your top priority. Gen chem can make or break a (typically freshman) student's science career and Paul really cares about his students and their success.

Paul is great with answering questions, I go in to office hours at least once a week. He's in his office a lot, and doesn't mind if you come in when it's not official office hours. The class is good, he keeps things engaging.

Incredible course. Simple class layout-He teaches, quizzes as he teaches, get's instant feedback and can correct anyone's problems right away. Learning the material happened automatically just by being in the room. Funny as well. He's also British.

Dr.Hooker is an extraordinary professor. He takes the time to explain concepts that can be extremely difficult to understand. He's always available during Office Hours and I HIGHLY recommend taking advantage of that. Put in the effort, and you'll get a good grade, he's not easy, but when the ACS Exam comes along, you'll be more than prepared.

Great professor who really challenges you. Extremely fair and makes learning fun. If you plan on actually using chemistry in your future school or career, you need to take this class from Paul. You will LEARN the material making future classes much easier.
