Review #1 / Course: CHEM 2461 / Instructor: SMITH K
Professor Smith is a great guy and is willing to help you out if you seek it. With that said, I performed terribly in his class because his lectures put me to sleep. The lectures tend not to be informative as they are basically what is in his notes packet. He also does not give homework, or that many practice problems. As a result, you have to study yourself and basically read the notes and understand everything yourself by spending many quality hours with the book. He curves his test and class very heavily so that is pretty good. However, other classes had almost the same difficulty of exams so I don't see why a curve for his class is necessary but I am not complaining about it. He drops one exam out of four and the final is worth 40% of your grade. The final is very similar to previous exams and some questions are the same with slight variations.

Review #2 / Course: CHEM 2461 / Instructor: VICENTE M
The worst part about this particular course is that there was no curving of either individual tests or the overall distribution of grades which is how the "regular" OChem classes usually are. Vicente is very difficult to understand and moves too quickly through the lectures. Her one redeeming quality was her enthusiasm for the subject, but it wasn't enough for me.

I have never worked so hard and spent so much time on a class in my life, and I made my first C ever in this class. DO NOT TAKE CROWE! Students took his tests to 2 other organic profs & neither could even finish the tests! His test are IMPOSSIBLE!

Review #4 / Course: CHEM 2461 / Instructor: CROWE W
Crowe knows his shit. If you want to know Organic take him. His tests are really, really hard and a lot of time is required outside of the class to prepare for the material, but damn it feels good and rewarding to come out of that class with an A.

This class is extremely difficult. Crowe does his best to give his students opportunities to do well though, bonus, curving, etc.
