Comment:
Dr. Foy glosses over too many things he feels you should already know. He needs to realize some people haven't had chem since 10-11th grade. We were not prepared at all for tests. I would not recommend this professor unless you are very secure in chemistry.

DO NOT TAKE DR FOY. He will make you feel stupid for asking questions. Also, he will bash your class to ALL OF THE OTHER CHEM PROFESSORS. My class had no idea what was going on and did not know how to answer his question. He then proceeded to get loud with our class saying that we should know the basics when some of us haven't taken chem in 2 years

Comment:
He is a great proffesor if you learn well by lectures. He goes fast so do take notes. He doesn't mind questions or asking him to slow down. However if you don't pick up the material and don't try to get help you will fall behind.

Comment:
Dr. Foy is a great professor. It certainly helps to know chemistry before taking this class, as I admit he can sometimes gloss over things expecting you to know them. But if you look through your book and pay attention in lecture, it shouldn't be too hard. This class was never boring and I learned a lot. Gives loads of extra credit!

I find him to be intimidating and unapproachable. I feel that Foy could be clearer when teaching so that topics are easier to understand.

He's a great guy and he's cool to talk to. But now that I've said something nice about him I can tell the remaining chem and Bio students not to take him as a professor. If you have taken some sort of higher chem before this then yeah go ahead and take it with him. If you haven't please take it with someone else. Literally anyone else.

Comment:
Dr. Foy is a disgrace to the education community. He has zero interest in teaching chemistry. He is unwilling to adapt his lessons to meet the needs of his students. He is unwilling to spend adequate time outside of class to help determined students. He seems bored with his own lecture. Do NOT take him unless you want to teach yourself!

DO NOT TAKE HIM! worst professor ever. His class made me hate chemistry and he was the most unclear teacher with no teaching skills besides reading from a powerpoint. Uses other professors test so you don't know whether what you've learned is on it or not. He is terrible at explaining, he just expects you to already know the material!! BAD!!

Had him for instrumental. Very lazy teacher. Half the time he can't be bothered to help or has no idea what's going on. His lectures ramble about global warming and you learn nothing. Go to the review sessions held by the lab assistants, they will basically teach you everything you need to know for the test.

this guy is great. You can tell he really loves what he does. But don't kid yourself and think you will breeze through. you gotta study for his tests and read the book even though he really doesn't use it in class. Don't wait until the night before to study for one of his exams, you will go nuts.

This guy is awful! You basically have to teach yourself from the book and memorize a lot of formulas and structures. I had to bail just to save my GPA. Take general physics or bio, it's a lot easier.

Very hard class. Foy seems like a nice guy, but I can't seem to get the concepts from him. His teaching style is random, no set notes or lecture. Uses other profs exams so some stuff they may have covered Foy does not so exam questions are surprises.
