Really good professor overall! His examples are super helpful and well explained. Ochem is challenging so don't expect otherwise but if you attend lecture and read the book, everything is pretty straight forward. He has his TAs take roll in discussion so be prepared to go every week.

I took Professor Harran in Fall 2010, for Chem 30A.

Overall, fantastic professor. He has powerpoints, which are honestly useless, but his notes, examples, and presentation are excellent. He expects quite a bit, as his exams are analogous with those of Dr. Craig Merlic. So if you want good practice, simply study Merlic's exams, and you will be a-okay. Office hours are great, though at times he may get a bit impatient. However his office is posh, so that may be a motivator - overall, a great professor, with a passion for organic chemistry.

Exam Averages: 1 and 2 around 60, final around 55.

Took chem105 with this guy. In his lectures, his words follow a logical progression which makes it easy to understand and comprehend (much more clear than those professors that jump around on topics). I’m sure he’s an excellent professor for the ochem series.

I did a lot worse than I expected, but I still got a B. In all honesty, though, if you miss a day, you miss a week, so don't fall behind. I did while taking two lab classes, which really sucks. Oh yeah, since there are a lot of try hards in the class waiting to suck that A, it's hard to get an A unless you dedicate your whole time.

Dr. Harran is a pretty good professor. He explains the material well, has a decent sense of humor, and tries to make Organic Chemistry as painless/enjoyable as possible, which he did a fairly good job in doing.

Although his lectures are usually not overwhelming, his first midterm was very time constrained. However, his exams in general are fair. In order to get an A, make sure you are in the top 30 of the students and you should be fine. He also cranks out grades quickly, which is good. I recommend him.

Midterm 1- Average:60
Midterm 2-59
Final-70

He is a great professor. Tests based only on lecture materials. You only need the book for practice problems. His tests are pretty doable as long as you study!
