Review #1 / Course: CHEM 1202 / Instructor: RUPNIK K
Take Chemistry with Dr. Rupnik and follow all of the advises i'm going to give you to an A in the class! The grade is divided into 5 tests (4 regular exams and the Final), online homework and class participation. Each of the four exams is worth 12.5% of your final grade, so can still get an A in the class if you do badly in a couple of them. Test 4 is still worth 12.5% but is half cumulative. The final is worth 35% but is cumulative, and easier than previous tests. Class participation is evaluated with quizzes. HINTS: 1. GO TO CLASS, class participation is worth 10% of the grade and he doesn't even check the quizzes. He apparently just records your name in his grade book. 2) GO TO HIS OFFICE HOURS and show him how interested you are in the class. You should know some of the material before seeing him, so he knows you actually make an effort in the class. 3) For the tests, study from his practice exams to get a feel of what to expect on the actual exam. I got an A in the class when it was mathematically impossible to get it with the grade I had before the final. I believe he curved the final grade and/or remembered me from his office hours.

Review #3 / Course: CHEM 1202 / Instructor: COOK E
Cook is a funny teacher. She laughs at her own jokes and is strangely entertaining. The class is okay. Cook has a note packet that you should buy and you just fill out the notes in class. If you do the homework you should do well on the exams. Just study and do the homework and you should make a good grade.

Review #4 / Course: CHEM 1202 / Instructor: COOK E
Dr. Cook was very organized and always had the exam answers posted right after the exam. She was also very willing to help anyone who wanted to learn! Although she would sometimes mumble and ramble on to where not many people could really hear her, she offered tons of bonus! I took her for 1201 also which in my opinion was a little more difficult but still bearable. Take Cook if you want to learn!!

Review #5 / Course: CHEM 1202 / Instructor: SITUMA C
The teacher has a very thick accent and her lectures are worthless. Office hours are a nightmare and mastering chemistry is a joke. She would constantly expand the deadline for homework but not inform the class until you had no more attempts left.
