Excellent prof. He is very clear on what he wants the class to know. If he's still teaching definitely take Ochem with him

He just does power points... not very good prof in front of the class, but if you try one on one, he is amazing. very kind and considerate. He will make sure you understand what you asked before you leave. String german accent

I think he tries to show interest in his student by giving night seminars in addition to his office hours. I think he is not bad guy but not the best prof. He is very confusing sometimes with his accent too, and the seminar just repeat the answers for the homework he posts online. I learned more on my own than in class.

The amount of work that I had to contribute to walk out of the final with an A+ is unbelievable. He has the thickest accent and uses another prof's notes. He makes a lot of mistakes and is unclear. BUT... his exams are not bad. Textbook was my best friend.

HT is an amazing prof for both 261 and 263. Clear, concise notes but most of all he's extremely approachable and helpful during office hours. He genuinely cares about students. Hmwk sets are a must and will prep you for exams well. I can't say enough kind things about HT. Outstanding prof and a funny and caring person :)You get used to the accent!

He's not very clear in class but he uses Apelblat's notes which are very good. Hard exams, lots of theory and tricky multiple choice. If you are not good at chem, I would not recommend him.

class extremely boring and it takes about a month to figure out his german accent. he makes so many mistakes, it makes the course material confusing. since he doesn't ever look up, questions are rarely answered. prof totally destroyed the course for me.

Boring class. Makes so many mistakes in his notes which ends up being really confusing. Seems like a really nice guy, and he cares about his students just not the best prof. His exams were okay, some questions seemed a bit random though. And his practice exams are nothing like his actual ones since he uses apelblats.

He speaks with a monotone voice... mumbles a lot and hard to keep attentive in class. He makes a lot of mistakes going through the notes, and never looks up to answer student's questions. Going to class is so useless and the practice exams are nothing like his actual tests since he just gives Apelblat's practice exams.

Easy going old guy, does have German accent. Personally I found him to be the best, well Apelblat is as good anyway.. his exams are a joke and are easy to ace. YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR STUFF TO GET AN A+.. ooh and class is curved.. I loved his classes and you probably would too

Useless teacher. He's using another teacher's old notes, and he is basically robotic in his lectures. If he doesn't know something (i.e. the whole course) he just mumbles in his poor English, and hopes that nobody asks a question. Strange fella.

He cared for his students, but I felt as though going to class was pretty useless. Notes are all over the place (in class) but the annotated notes he posts afterward are great. His problem sets don't really look like his exams, but organic chem is very intuitive and requires more work than just doing the sets. It requires you to KNOW your stuff.

provides clear notes that are general so you definately have to study certain things in greater detail. very helpful during office hours and provides plenty of ressources to help you do well. can sometimes be difficult to understand but you get used to it. difficult exams but they are fair, bottom line you must know your stuff.

Notes: well organized and the concepts are laid out well. They are confusing, but they were less confusing when I went to the lectures. However he does expect you to know some fine details. Lectures: not very engaging and he has somewhat a monotone voice. He just needs to "modernize" his lectures. He also cracks some jokes which I like.

Dr. Taube does a fairly good job of explaining mechanisms and concepts, but he does expect his students to catch on fast and to remember quite a bit from 261. Paying attention in class definitely helps but even if you don't, the notes do make sense in the end. His exams are fair and to succeed, you must read and memorize the notes thoroughly .

I found his class to be fairly hard because he doesn't explain mechanisms very well and he went way too fast through the notes. Went to every class, was confused every class. I would not recommend this prof, especially for organic chem

Decent teacher, but I found that there was a lot of material to go through. Ochem isn't easy, and you definitely have to work hard. Curve definitely helps out though.

Lots of mechanisms and reactions to memorize. It's easy to not pay attention in lectures, but if you do and read over your notes it all makes sense in the end. His accent is somewhat thick but you get used to it. I personally loved this prof. Don't buy text, just google for resources online.

I didn't do well in this class despite hard work so I have nothing nice to say. I didn't go to class at all and you'll know y once you sit through it for a few lectures. I did not understand what he said and his explanations did not make sense at all. Don't buy the textbook seriously, there's sooo much online ochem stuff for free.
