CHEM 1332
Fundamentals of Chemistry
4****
Pros: Explains material in an easy manner, and keeps students interested in lecture. Provides notes and makes himself available for Friday tutor sessions.
Cons: Daily poppers that can be tricky.
You are expected to read the chapters; he normally covers the difficult part of the chapter in class and expects the student to read through the rest..i.e..if your good at skimming chapters just for the main point, you can free up some more study time.
