Supposed to have 2 leactures per week but he cancelled the first week of classes and the lectures after sixth weeks were all abt presentation. No midterm, no hw, no final. So, u would learn nothing in the class overall. There were four reports in the quarter and the lowest score of the report would be dropped. The grading was just ok coz the final decision was made by Baugh. The TAs graded the reports first and then Baugh and he pulled down the scores....for example, many ppl in the class got 7x or 8x out of 100 from TAs but Baugh made the score to 6x or even lower....Be ready to see that happen. And u wont get back the FIRST report back after FIFTH week, its terrible......which implied that u wont know how u did during the quarter.....
The only great pt in the class was that he wasnt a killer.... its not hard to pass the course but dont expect to get a gd grade.

If you are reading this, then more than likely you have heard horror stories about Bouchard and 114. And, you also probably don't have much of a choice about taking this class. But, let me address a few things.

The class is very difficult, no lies here. On top of the lab reports, Louie gives the hardest homework assignments I ever had at UCLA, and exams aren't a walk in the park (although if you study and do the hw they actually aren't all that bad). Ultimately, however, I ended up appreciating the class. Louie is very rigorous, derived, and straight forward in his lectures, and ultimately the lectures are clear. He also provides incredibly detailed notes, which are long but you MUST study them to do well. Be sure to go to the TA's to make sure your lab reports are well written, as you shouldn't lose sight of the fact that they are the biggest portion of your grade. The class is hard, and you will have to work your tail off, but Bouchard is actually a cool guy, he just enjoys challenging people.

This was his first time teaching Chem 114. I loved this class, apparently this class is hated by many students but Weiss really set up the class extremely well. He assigns you 4 labs and you get 2 weeks to do each lab report! And you get to present on one of your lab reports as if you're doing a talk at a conference. Superb teacher; highly recommend.
