|An answer from an expert! Thanks for cotutibnring.|
Pros: Interactive with students
Homework problems and lots of practice
Accessible office hours
Cons: Tests are much harder than quizzes
One bad test can ruin GPA
Attendance quizzes may be given
If you have taken and passed AP Chemistry or IB HL Chemistry, don't take this class. You're wasting your time reviewing all semester. If you haven't or it's been a few years, this class shouldn't be skipped if you plan to continue in chemistry. The professors sometimes talks over your head. Just ask what he means, one of the students can usually clarify it if he doesn't.
Pros: Entertaining to listen to.
Cons: Doesn't discuss any of the quizzes or test problems in class and doesn't review the material. Assumes the student knows more than they do.
Pros: Great teacher
Doesn't use powerpoint
Very open office Hours
Hw really boots grade
EC on quizzes if all correct
Cons: No Curve
Grazed over somethings that TAs found important.
Cons: Terrible teacher!! Don't even think about taking him. Study study study, and you still end up with a c-. AVOID AT ALL COST. He's a waste of time money and effort.
DO NOT TAKE. Oh, and he's a jerk...
Pros: SO HARD. tests are way worse than what you learn in class. so difficult even with chem backround
Cons: learn a lot. but you learn on your own, not with his help.

Pros: Dr. Kearley is always there for his students. Passionate about chemistry.
Cons: Tests are difficult. Do homework problems and ask for help during office hours.
Cons: i don't care what anyone tells you, don't take his class unless you want to kill your GPA. I'm about to graduate and his class is the only blemish on my transcript.
tests are unnecessarily hard, he's the professor that doesn't want to answer questions or teach really at all, he just wants to prove to you how much he knows and how much you won't learn in his class. he may seem nice, but his tests are unfair and not reflective of any of the GENERAL chem material.

Pros: Extremely helpful in office hours
Makes sure all students understand the material
Cons: Extremely difficult tests
Pros: Likes what he teaches. Very helpful when you need him. Teaches at a good pace.
Cons: tests were exceedingly difficult (the class average was well below a C)
Pros: None. Hated the guy, period
Cons: Not an effective teacher in general. Tests are wicked. Says things will NOT be on the test and then puts them on the test. Tests are not reflective of material covered. It's like a game.
Take any other section but Kearley. No matter what.
|Makes the class a lot more difficult than it has to be, and if you have him as your teacher, you will be very envious of those who get, cassanova, hawker, and even Dillon.|
|Really hard tests... Very challenging stuff he brings to the table. All questions on the test are questions that are complicated examples of the examples studied. Weeds you out before orgo... I got a B-, A in chem2, A in orgo... Trust me, this is a hard class... especially to start out in your science career|
