CHM113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Klassen was the BEST, most motivating, hardest-working professor I have ever had. He gave exciting, thought-proving lectures and really seemed to have a passion for the subject (as well as teaching it). Best prof. ever. I'm sorry he's gone.

He gets off track a lot during lecture. When he's actually ON track he isn't bad at explaining things. Go to Chad's test-preparation lectures and you will improve your chances of scoring well on the difficult tests.

chm113 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is my first semester with Chemistry since high school and I was lost majority of the time. I usually pass sciences without trouble, but I am always frustrated with this class. He moves quickly and if you take the time outside of class, you might follow.

I had him for both 113 and 116, and I thought he did a better job with 113. He isn't very clear, but the tests are straight forward and the practice help a lot. I would recommend him, but I wouldn't rely on the lectures to learn the material (two words: Chad's Reviews.)

Fantastic professor. I have taken this class before and that instructor was HORRIBLE. Klassen is a breath os fresh air and really knows how to make Chemistry easier to understand.

This guy is the greatest. He is very good at explaining. He is a great educator. He goes off on the occasional tangent which is needed sometimes in the class. The test are a challenge. Great to have casual conversations with.

Dr. Klassen makes interesting (if you don't mind side notes) and easy class. He is honest about the limitations of a first year Chem class. HW is optional; I never looked at it or read the book and got an easy A from his lectures and sample tests. Know the info on the sample tests, concepts mirror actual test (have even found repeat questions).

He jumps around way too much, he get's way ahead of himself and gets lost alot. But he's a nice guy.
