Comment:
This class is challenging, but manageable. His lectures definitely help to make sense of the material, but the book helped me the most. In order to do well in that class, you just need to go over and over the material. Also, he gives out old practice exams, so be sure to do them.

Comment:
He's interesting and the theoretical concepts that he presents are easy enough in lecture, though the lectures don't prepare you for exams. You must do the practice problems in the book, which aren't so easy in order to at least pass. He doesn't give partial credit b/c this is the premed weed out, though not everyone was.Take to learn!

Comment:
This guy is definitely over-rated. He's passionate about the subject matter, but his lectures don't really prepare you for his exams. You must do the hw problems in the book, which are very tricky. You must know the info inside or out or you'll do poorly b/c he doesn't believe in partial credit& assumes everyone in this class is going pre-med.

Great professor. Exams aren't hard as long as you study the notes. Read the book if you want but you don't NEED to. Second exam is major grade booster. Final was the easiest exam I've ever taken.

Even though I had to change my major because I could not get through organic, I still must say that Professor Schneider is an INCREDIBLE professor. He is extremely clear in his lectures, funny, and engaging during class. Even though it was hard, I managed to stay intruiged with everything Professor Schneider taught. Take him for organic!!!!!!!!!

Comment:
I'm switching into a chem major because of him. Everyone says Organic is awful but he makes organic chem interesting. Lectures are necessary but the book basically says the same exact thing. Tests are hard but he prepares you well for them. Very funny guy. Knows his stuff and tries to get his students excited about it.

Great professor - I'm so bummed he's not teaching 322 next semester. He tells you on the first day that if you spend an hour a day on the class you'll get a good grade, and he's right - go to class, re-copy notes, read the book and do book homework and you'll be good. Makes O-Chem as painless as it can be, very funny and a great lecturer.

He is the best! Take him if you can for 321 and 322 he is crystal clear and lays a great foundation in 321 for 322. Hands down my favorite chem prof ever! You do need the book as with any chem class. HE makes chem as fun as it can be

good professor but isn't really willing to throw a bone when the students need it. refused to curve exam that someone got a 0 on and the avg was a 54, but gave a whopping 5 ec points (who knows if he even gave it to us?) much harder than chem321..many many more reactions. know the textbook inside and out and you'll do fine.

Doesn't seem to understand that not everyone forced to take this class in order to graduate wants to go onto med school. Has ridiculous expectations and makes it hard to pass some of his tests. Someone got a zero on a test this semester. If you can avoid orgo, id advise avoiding it at ALL COSTS!!!

Orgo is an extrmely hard topic, but he explains it very well. He is a really good teacher. Go to class, do what he tells you to do, do the practice tests, and you'll do fine. I really recommend taking him if you need to take Orgo.

Dr. Schneider really knows how to teach organic chem and make it comprehensible. If you go to class, do the problems in the book, and rewrite your notes you can definitely get an A. He's a really funny guy too, and encouraging of everyone's progress; one-on-one he's not as supportive. Definitely take him but expect to work outside of class.

For a hard class like O-chem, he does a pretty good job explaining it. Exams start easy and get harder, but if you study and go over old exams and notes, you should be good. The guy also has a good sense of humor.

Any prof that can assign Caddyshack and Christmas Vacation as extra credit for the final is awesome. Have to read book, homework, and go to class. Hard class, but he helps you get through it with his sense of humor.
