CHEM 237
PRIN ORGANIC CHEM I
5*****
Dr. Davis is one of the best chem prof at UMD. Really energetic and loves what he does and is one of the coolest people you will ever have the pleasure to meet. Go to Discussion, Office hours too if you need help. Follow the book but dont get too caught up on it. Posts sample exams. 80% up is an A but it's a fuzzy line and if you're on the line between grades, he usually gives you the benefit of the doubt. Participate in lecture and he'll love you. Don't be afraid to make mistakes in participating, he'll just show you the right way to do it, why you were wrong and it will really help your thinking process. If you can take him, do it.

CHEM 241
Organic Chemistry II
5*****
Pros: As a lecturer, Dr. Davis is really easy to follow, and very entertaining. As an evaluator, he is also very clear about his expectations. He wants to know that you understand the underlying principles and tests you accordingly. He retraces organic chemistry 1 while introducing the concepts which is very helpful.
Cons: If you consider yourself stronger at memorization other professors will play to your strengths better. Many times the tests include topics that were not explicitly studied, but you should understand if you understand those topics.
Altogether he is one of my favorite professors at the university. I learned a lot through him and left feeling really comfortable with organic chemistry.

4****
Pros: Great use of board space.

Very good lecturer.

Was willing to answer student questions during class.
Cons: Didn't really advertise office hours
He went out of his way to make sure the students understand Orgo. He went slow and didn't care if he didnt get to everything listed on the syllabus. Overall, funny guy.

As tough as orgo is, Dr. Davis is very organized and understandable in the way he presents the material. He is nice and as good a professor as you could wish for in and organic chemistry class.
