CHE 002A - General Chem
Pros: Professor Toupadakis wants his students to understand the material. He is a good chemistry professor. It is up to the student to do the homework and practice problems.
Cons: He has an accent but it is possible to understand. I do not know what his office hours are like.

CHE 002C - General Chem
Use his reader, it's very helpful especially for deciphering what he is trying to say. Not a great professor but his reader is excellent. He's not an easy professor so beware and study, curves can be great depending on your luck and the rest of your class.

Pros: Very nice guy, seems to be happy with life and likes to share that with his students.
Cons: Unfortunately, his accent is a bit difficult, and he would rather be a philosopher than a teacher.
I went to lecture but never took away anything much extra than what I learned from the reader.

Pros: No homework is ever given.
Cons: Professor Toupadkis goes off on tangents far too often and it is more like a life-coach than a professor.
You have to really be disciplined to do well in this class.
