Chem422 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Always goes out of his way in office hours to assist a student in learning the material. Expects you to understand and apply the material, not just regurgitate it. Anybody who said he was a bad or poor teacher is probably a student who wanted to memorize the material and get an A and shouldn't be in college to begin with. Would take again!!

Learned a lot in his inorganic course. Very knowledgeable, will meet with you to discuss questions in office. The class is somewhat hard, but definitely manageable if you are really serious about getting your chem degree. Otherwise don't cry.

chem115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

worst teacher ive ever had. most chem 115 classes have pretty easy lab finals, but not him. had to memorize practically the whole semester's worth of labs including procedures and calculations. goes so fast on slides in lecture you cant write it all down. expects you to perfectly understand stuff barely mentioned. and ridiculous problem sets.

He is a nice guy but can't teach. If you havn't had any chemistry prior to this class it will be a struggle. He is not good at explaining things and teaches from a slide show.

Not very faithful to office hours. Uses slides, assumes students know processes when he does the occasional example problem on the board, big user of powerpoint slides.

This is a really good prof. He is very helpful if you seek out his help! He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to! He does answer emails if you use the correct email address!!! The one in the syllabus! I would highly recommend taking him!! Thank you Dr. Stolzenberg!

CHEM115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Teacher was difficult but didn't know how to teach the material adequately. Did not answer multiple emails and gave the hardest tests. Lab final was impossible, while other teachers gave answers to their students, we struggled. No point in taking this class unless you want to spend 2 hours a day studying.

He made everything extremely hard and confusing and his test were outrageous. the lab final was so difficult that you would have had to remember everything you did during lab from what was added to how to calculate...would no recommend

Chem115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

To me he just rambles on about a whole lot of nothing that has nothing to do with what he tests on. Teaches from a power point which SUCKS. Take him if you dont want to do alot of work.

this guy is possibly the worst ever. DO NO TAKE HIM. He teaches from powerpoint which isn't ver effective for chemistry. You never have a chance to write all the notes and his problem sets are insane. The only benefit is not having a quiz in lab. This is definitely my least favorite and most difficult class.

He was horrible!! He taught off of the powerpoints and didn't explain anything in further detail. Tests were unfair and chem grad students couldn't even figure out some of the problems that he gave for homework! I think that he assumes that we are all chem experts!! Please don't take this guy, save yourself the headache!!!

almost all sad faces...enough said. but i'll add that the worst part about dr. s and this class is that he is not foreign...i usually try to avoid prof.s with accents, but in this case deciphering broken english would be better.

Wow everyone needs to stop complaining just because they were too lazy. If you read the material before class and don't write down his notes verbatim and listen you can actually learn it. Do the problem sets and the practice problems in the book. Buck up, youre in college now, the teacher can't do it for you.
