She is very bright but she cannot teach. If you are not required to take chem 172 with her, avoid it by all means. You will be teaching this material to yourself and that alone will be very difficult considering that there are not many practice problems to study from. I suggest for those who are required to take this class is to do the problem sets and have questions ready for the TAs during office hours (which each of the two TAs has one OH per week) AND discussion sections. They are very helpful if you have questions ready for them. Do NOT expect review sessions outside of class from the TAs. Midterms are similar to problem sets but to be successful in these midterms is to MASTER the material. it's all or nothing in these exams so be prepared to be tested on speed and accuracy. It's stressful but doable. Just hang on and make sure to do the extra credit on time!!! If you need help, feel free to email me at [email protected] ....I'll try to help ya out. Prof is a nice person but the class material is confusing and hard to teach so it's not her fault.
