CHEM110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The people who gave low ratings just don't understand chem. The class is hard b/c the material is hard, he does his best to explain material and offers help all the time and office visits.

CHEM101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mr Cripe is a very rude teacher. He makes students feel stupid for asking questions and he won't really give you an answer. He gives LOTS of the same homework for no reason. We are talking about 8 pages for each class. Do not recommend him.

CHEM110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I love Chem, so I got an A but it's only because the class was easier than my highschool chem. he's terrible at explaining things, and he can get grumpy. don't bother asking a question because he probably won't answer it. he's just not a nice person, and he's hard of hearing. the study guides are the only thing that makes sense in this class.

Chem110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is very rude and acts as though he is above everyone! He will try to embarrass you for asking questions and instead of helping with answers he just asks you leading questions back. I used to love chemistry until taking with him. I am so glad this semester is over and I will never have to deal with him again!

CHEM110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Chem is hard either way you look at it. Its even harder as a night course 2 nights a week (which is what he teaches ONLY) He is a good teacher. If you ask him a question he helps guide you towards an answer instead of just giving it to you. He gives out study guides for EVERY test except final.

CHEM110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I think he believes himself to be above his students. He makes the material so unnecessarily difficult to make himself appear superior. I dropped this class and plan on taking it next semester with an instructor that enjoys 'teaching' students rather than feeding off their ignorance.

Chem1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

It would have been helpful if he either tested from his lectures or the book, but he likes to lecture but the book was totally different.

He is full of sarcasm, but a wonderful teacher. If you can deal with with a teacher being flip once in awhile, he is a great teacher for Chem. Very smart and always helpful.

I thought Professor Cripe was great. At first glance he looks like a really old, boring old guy. But he's actually pretty energetic and funny. He may not be very straightforward when you ask for answers, but only because he wants to make sure you understand what you're doing.

One of the worst teachers ever. He is sarcastic and really doens't teach you or help you if you need help. During lab you just do your own thing and help you know it. Don't take him!
