The reason why I love Dr. Neufeldt is that her style of teaching really depends on attendance. Unlike Hardinger, you CANNOT just simply memorize the practice exams because she is relatively new to the chemistry department. In other words, NO REPEAT EXAMS. I loved her class so much and have a new love for organic chemistry because everything she says make sense! I also remember things easier when I write things down by hand. Neufeldt did a lot for our class, such as giving us a study guide before exams, generated a list of reactions for us to study, and even offered us extra credit. Although her exams are tough, she will never throw a curveball at you. Everything she tests will be found in your notes, so no need to worry about her tricking you. I did soooooo much better in chemistry 14D than chemistry 14C and I have Neufeldt to thank for that!

Prof. Neufeldt is one of the best, cutest, and most caring professor I have ever had at UCLA. So sad to see her leave :( Wish her a wonderful future.

She is a really great professor. You'll NEVER have a moment in class where you didn't completely understand what she wrote on the board before she moves to the next topic. You'll always leave class understanding. That being said, this class is a LOT of memorization along with understanding concepts. She gives you all the problems and need to practice and do well, and its up to YOU to do them. Average first midterm was 80% second midterm average was 70%. I've done very well on both midterms because I've put in the time to do all the problems and practice, but really that's all you need to do. Do not underestimate her ability to make very challenging tests, you better know your stuff or you'll be in big trouble. Overall, incredible professor. Would recommend! Anyone who does the work and puts in time to practice can get an A in this class. Good luck!

I loved this class! It's mostly memorization but you also need to know how to use the different mechanisms. Neufeldt really helps you learn the material though. She's so patient and sweet during office hours too.

In this class I got the worst grade I have ever received at UCLA (C+). I will say, however, that it is definitely not her fault. She is a really good professor who is clear, concise, and writes down the lectures on a chalkboard rather than uses slides. Doing this makes things go at a reasonable pace. She sends out good study materials and if you practice and go to lecture you should do well (at the very least better than I did!) The tests are challenging and long but if you did everything you should have you should be decently prepared.

She was a good teacher I enjoyed her. I recommend studying the problem sets and the reaction list. Take notes of the mechanisms and know them. You can memorize the reaction list and still do fair on all her tests. Those are most important and actually going to lass for the extra credit points.
