If you want to really learn, then I suggest taking him. If you want to get an A+ through memorization, look for another prof. his tests are pretty tough which means he expects his students to actually study and immerse themselves with the topic. he has a lot of tutoring and thats great. he is also very HAPPY! ALWAYS!!!

I don’t understand all of the reviews on here. Professor Lavelle is an amazing professor. The amount of resources he provides for his students is unlike anything I have seen in my life. He is a happy guy and literally spends his free time on “Chemistry Community” helping students. I wouldn’t say his tests are “easy,” but I would certainly say that if you do all the homework problems, you’ll have a fine time getting between a B+ — A+. My description of this class is that it’s literally your own fault if you don’t get the grade you want. Don’t blame Lavelle.

I took both Chem 14A and 14B with Dr. Lavelle and really enjoyed both courses. His teaching style focuses on problem-solving with an emphasis on doing math/calculations. The key to doing well in his class is to do the textbook problems he assigns as well as the old midterms and finals in his coursereader. If you do these things, you should be well prepared for his exams. Students who took AP Chemistry in high school will find the majority of Chem 14A and much of 14B to be review, but it is absolutely possible to do well even if you haven't taken it . While the class is a lot of work, this is college after all, and Lavelle gives you all the resources you could possibly need to succeed. I found the UA office hours to be especially helpful, as they can go over concepts and problems in more detail than Lavelle can during his lectures. In addition, most of them have taken Chem 14A/B with Lavelle, so they know the structure of the class and can give you advice on how to do well on his exams. I also found TA office hours, midterm/final review sessions, and online Chemistry Community to be very helpful.
