I took this professor for 20b. i think she is a very effective professor and is definately one of the best i have had at ucla. Her midterms are fairly easy, but the final is hard. All her exams are fair though. If you take chem, take her if you can.

I had her for 20BH-- the class was hard but she was easy to approach and really helpful in OH. She explains hard concepts very well and if you approach her with a question, she always makes sure she's given you the answer and that you understand what she explained.

She gives hard tests, but she's very effective in office hours and has many of them.

20BH thermochemistry is hard. My friend and I hated her during the class. Then we realized that the regular 20B classes were having just as much trouble with similar material, often because the professor was worse. The lectures were tangled messes of algebra, but she was very effective in office hours. In retrospect, it was a good class, and she was a good professor. I would hope to take her for 110A because the other professors are worse.

I don't understand why she has low ratings. I thought her lectures were enthusiastic and energetic, and that she made complex concepts fairly easy to grasp. She does move along at a rapid-fire pace, so it's definitely important to have your head in the game. Fortunately, she's very helpful, and will usually be happy to stay after lecture to clarify the more difficult points. The assignments and tests were hard, but the upside to that is a very friendly curve. If you understand the basic points it's not hard to beat the median and get a decent grade. All in all, I'd definitely recommend her.

Tolbert was a good professor - just stay kept up in the reading and you'll be chill; nonetheless, she is a much better professor than are a few others in the general chem department.
