Pros: Knowledgeable

Cons: Left-handed
Benson is a wonderful organic chemistry teacher. I thought this class was going to be horrible because of all of the horror stories I've heard about ochem. But he supplies a lot of extra resources and makes sure he goes through all the steps and gives at least one example of everything he talks about.

Great professor! He's a true character that brings an element of entertainment to organic chemistry. His door is always open, and he is more than willing to explain both grading and assist with learning the material on an individual level.

CHEM 624
Organic Chemistry I
2**
Pros: -Drops 1 test

-Started off the semester with useful practice problems in lecture.

-PLUS Sessions

-Review before each Exam.

-He leaves his written notes up for a good amount of time seeing as he's left handed.
Cons: -Tests are nothing like the Practice Tests posted on Blackboard.

-Got lazy and used practice problems in lecture straight from the textbook
His attitude is either taken great or very poorly, i.e. it's either funny or you actually feel offended by him. He likes to make his tests at really inconvenient (social life) dates, such as the day after Halloween and the day we returned from Thanksgiving break. Don't you dare take your computer or use your cell if you want to sit in the front section of the class, he will scold you.

Organic Chemistry I
4****
Pros: It's just a lot of memorization and practicing of reactions
Cons: You need to spend a lot of time studying for the tests. There's no way around it.
Overall, not that hard of a class. It's not as hard as it's hyped up to be
