CHEM 210 - General and Inorganic Chem
Probably my favorite professor at SIU he's strict enough to make sure you're focused on the lecture, but laid back enough to where its easy to go in and get help from him. He really wants you to do well.
Pros: Will go out of his way to help you when you're struggling as long as you seek the help from him.
Cons: His tests are really challenging, but as long as you study the homework you won't have a problem

CHEM 140A
Chemistry
5*****
Pros: Tries his very best to make a hard subject possible for you to understand. Makes very good outlines for powerpoint. Puts tons of things on blackboard so you can reference then including class notes. Gives you practice homework options to help. Gives opportunities to gain points for just being in class.
Cons: none
I wish he would have been available for 140B!
