Where do I begin? Eric is BY FAR the best professor I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. I was dreading the chemistry series and Eric has now made it my favorite class, so much so that I always sit in the very front of the lecture hall excited to learn. Eric is not only an incredible lecturer with the impeccable ability to break down complex topics, but he knows how to incorporate a joke or two into each lecture (they're usually really cheesy but I enjoy them nevertheless). Besides his actual teaching ability, amazing as it is, Eric is also resource savvy. Eric uploads lecture notes before lecture, allowing us to review difficult concepts before diving right in. Two versions of the lecture notes get uploaded actually, the blank lecture notes and the filled lecture notes. The blank lecture notes allow you to take notes as Eric lectures and the filled lecture notes allow you to follow along and absorb everything Eric says without having to stress about note taking at the same time. Eric uploads both because he understands that everyone has different learning strategies. Furthermore, Eric is a great resource himself. He responds to emails within 30 minutes, even on weekends and in the odd hours of the night. Eric also has plenty of office hours and is so nice and approachable. The cherry on top of all of this, he is understanding and practical. He only assigns homework which will actually contribute to a solid foundation in chemistry and quizzes us weekly on material in order to see how solid that foundation is. If it's not solid, better to find out sooner rather than later so that you can improve before the exams. In addition, Eric lets us keep our best midterm score and drop the other one; this saved me since I practically failed the first midterm. I have truly never had such an amazing experience with a professor before. In fact, the entire 358 person class came together in the GroupMe and orchestrated a mass wave of emails to the chair of Chemistry department regarding hiring Eric as a full-time professor and not a temp. This worked so well that the chair emailed Eric asking him to inform his students to stop emailing the department because their inbox was flooded. Anyways, love that man. Would marry him even.
I loved Professor Wu!!!!! He made learning chemistry fun and easy. I appreciated how straight-forward he was in his explanations and you can tell that he is clearly very bright and has a lot of expertise in the area. He also cared a lot for his students!!! He would make filled out worksheets for each lecture (that he would even color coded) that were extremely helpful especially when studying for exams.
Speaking of exams, they were extremely fair. Professor Wu would send out practice exams and also hold review sessions that he hosted himself. The practice exams were very similar to the actual exams, which I appreciated a lot. Discussions were more like a Q&A style were you would just come with any questions you had and they could be answered by your TA. I ended up not really going by the end of quarter because they were optional.
Overall, loved this class and would definitely recommend people to take 14A with Professor Wu.
