Comment:
This is honestly one of the worst profs that I have ever had. He often gets confused while he teaches and is very difficult to understand. He is not a good speaker whatsoever. It is extremely important to read the textbook. The first midterm was easy, the second midterm was more difficult and the exam was hard.

Comment:
He is nice and he has knowledge but has zero classroom skills, not a good speaker as well, youll have a bunch of numbers, formulas, broken chalks, oops, ums, and uhs. Midterm 1 was easy; 2 was difficult and exam was very difficult and he did not cover most of it. Id say avoid but hes the head of the department, so study the textbook.

Avoid his lectures, study off the textbook even if it cost too much, buy it. All i have seen in the lecture is that he crunch some numbers and formulas. It is hard to understand him

Lectures are really boring but important. The exam would be really easy if you study from the text book and do the practice questions. overall he is'nt bad but there are better profs than him.

LOL. 1. DO NOT attend lectures! This man is incapable of keeping someone interested in the subject matter. I made the mistake of attending. 2. Read the textbook and do hw questions. 3. Exams are killer and he defs doesn't give enough time to write. AVOID.

He is very clear and easy to understand. And he's a very nice guy. But I wouldn't say that he stimulated my interest in the course, the lectures were pretty boring for the most part.

Extremely boring. His classes are not worth going to. Just go ever his slides and the textbook and you'll do fine. I'm not the only one. First week of class, his class was absolutely filled. But after that kids started not to go, just like me. He's not a good public speaker. Makes the subject boring. Couldn't even pay attention when i wanted to

Doesn't given enough time to write exams, and needs to be more organized in his notes. Nice guy, but needs to work on his classroom skills.

I can not believe how impolite some students are!! Honestly, I am a student like you are. Nice comments are not necessarly written by the professor. Macdonald is one of the best professor at the chemistry department in Windsor. He works SOOOOOOO hard to teach his students. I took almost all of his courses. He isa great and a very helpful professor.

Comment:
HARD MARKER!!! he is unfair in his marking, he assigns large marks for a small sentence so it's all or nothing. also, he stammers and stutters so much that it is almost impossible to understand him. he does help if you go to him during office hours though.

Comment:
You guys talking about the stuttering are really mean, and you're really, really exaggerating. He does get a bit ahead of himself sometimes but it's still very easy to follow the lectures. Exams are fair: if you showed up to class and looked at the previous years' exams you will be fine. Marking is fair if you show that you understand the concepts.

Comment:
He's a very nice professor and if you go talk to him in private, explains everything very well. Tests are pretty hard, and don't really follow the previous years' tests, but if you study notes, you'll be fine because he always goes over the topics in class, doesn't just take the questions out of nowhere. The textbook IS useless. Great prof.

Needs to lay off the caffiene a little, and not the most organized lecturer, but the class is easy enough that you should be able to figure the stuff out. Exams are fair, exactly like the practice exams.

Holy god, I swear that all the good comments posted above are by him, and not by his students cuz there's no way. He can't teach worth a penny, he mumbles, few and useless office hours and his TA's are the worst and pickiest. The book is unbelievably useless. Tests are brutal (and im an honours student, not some lazy failure). AVOID HIM!!!!!

Comment:
I first took his 250 class in second year and I found him quite hard... The tests and especially the exam were so long and difficult..So in fourth yesr, when deciding the courses I was very hesitant to take 450 (main group chem). What a surprise! He was clearer, much easier, and tests were not so demanding, so I was very happy with that class!

probably the pickiest marker on the face of the planet. his stuttering will slowly but surely drive you into a state of insanity before the semester concludes.
