All Ratings and Reviews for Robert T Clubb
This guy is not a professor, because according to my dictionary, professors should know how to teach and Clubb is far from that. He should stick to his lab and research since he apparently spends more time in that then he does preparing to teach the course. I am disappointed with this class and wish I would have taken another professor.
he makes you memorize everything...ALL mechanism in each lecture. His lectures are OK but can be better organized. If you're taking 153A.. try Dr. Bates, she has a reader and is probably more organized.
Clubb is not a professor, he researchs. This has advantaves and disadvantages. It's cool that he is not anal about stupid administrative details (I was late to a midterm and he let me take it in his lab). However, he lectures by showing over head after overhead of mechanisms. You have to memorize everything.
if you to take clubb for 153a seriously consider the other professor. clubb CAN'T lecture. he was actually booed during lecture once cuz it was so bad.
Dr. Clubb is a great professor. His lectures are a bit boring but he is very knowledgable and knows his stuff.
Definitely make sure you go to Rose's sections since she is one of the best TA's.
Make sure you get the lecture notes for his class because I didn't know about them until the end of the course when it was too late.
i think clubb was one the best chem prof's i have had. he's approachable, easy to understand and the way he covers the material is much easier than bates. it's more conceptual, less memorizing (although there is still alot) and lectures are really organized. and it's true...he is easy on the eyes as well.
He's a researcher, not a teacher. Makes you more or less memorize everything, including all mechanisms. Tests aren't too bad if you memorize everything in his notes, can be long. His office hours are at weird times, like 7am, so no one goes, and he wonders why no one goes. Overall, relatively easy grade if you memorize well, learn the material decently because you memorized it, but not an inspiring teacher or anything.
Clubb is really laid back and makes it really confortable to be in class. As far as being boring, it is the material's fault...as he says that he is "only a messenger". "Don't kill the messenger"-Clubb. In other words, take him unless you want the anal one next door.
clubb is cool... he's kinda funny too..
Clubb is not an engaging professor, but is obviously knowledgable about the material he covers. The exams require a lot of memorization as well as expansion of the ideas he covered in class. Unfortunately, I can't say I learned a thing in the class, which I'm sure is partly due to my disinterest in the subject, but also due to the boring lecture style and approach to the material.
