Chem 103 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

The teacher is very nice and he gives take home quizzes that can be challenging. You just need to understand the material and you will do good in his class. Do the questions that are in the book because they will help you when it comes to the test.

CHEM 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This is a COLLEGE level science course, he can be rude but he tells you that you'll need to put the time into the class, and if you do you will succeed. He states exactly what he wants done, and the quizzes are take home ones, he wants you to use the book and the internet to do it right. Doesn't use book much but it is VERY descriptive and helpful

This professor is mad easy! I have no idea why people dissing him, really. Just make sure you do the weekly "quizzes" without looking at the answers online and you'll be just fine.

He is a tough taskmaster. His makes his own exams and they are very short. But he is also very thourough, and will bend over backwards to make sure you understand the material. I arranged my next semester schedule around his chem 2 class.

chem101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's an awful professor. Flies through all the material, and expects you to learn everything too fast, almost like its just a review but its not. Doesnt explain much, so you have to do most of it on your own. And the exams are pretty hard too, and many quizzes. many dropped the course. would not recommend.

CHEM101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very Hard. He has very high expectations & moves very fast. He's easily irratated & some times a little snippy. He expects everyone to spend triple the amount of time studying for the course. Tests every friday. His grading system also stinks. Just withdrew this class & DO NOT plan on taking another with him. DO NOT recommend.

CHEM106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Did not think this would be as hard as it was...i withdrew as well as many others. Couldn't grasp the material and the weekly quizzes given on friday and due on monday morning didn't help when not all material was covered. Lab wasn't to hard at all...they can reach out to the smart kids who get "it". I'm dreading trying to retake it...

Okay professor. He is challenging, and you need to do a lot of work on your own. Can be difficult at times, but if you can motivate yourself, you will succeed in his class. Problem is, over half my class apparently can't do that and have dropped it.

Chem110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

His way of teaching is not clear until after you have taken a quiz/exam and failed. And when he explains the material you have already failed you understand it better but its too late. In my class 15 people out of 23 dropped the class, that should say something. But STCC will keep him because he makes them money when those 15 retake the class again

CHEM103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's a challenging professor who really requires you to know the material to pass the course. He's a stickler for "neatness," but his grading is fair.

people like this should not be teaching they have no concept of what teaching is and is there for only the paycheck.
