Quarter Taken: Winter 2015 Submitted Aug. 11, 2016 Grade Received: N/A

The worst professor at UCLA. Avoid him all you can.

Avoid him by all means.

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted May 29, 2015 Grade Received: N/A

He teaches the hardest class I've ever taken, but also the best class. The material he teaches is well above the standard general chemistry level (more on the order of graduate level), but he makes it all very understandable. Furthermore, he writes you a fantastic textbook of lecture notes (and does NOT charge you for it).
Perhaps the best thing about his class is his teaching style, there are no hand-wavey explanations. Everything is derived, so it makes sense.
He is very nice in office hours and answers all questions very fully.

tl;dr: if you can put in a lot of work it's the best class available.
