Genuinely the best professor I have ever had in my life. If you have the chance to take this class, take it immediately. He is kind and listens to his students and somehow packages Ochem into an interesting format (which is not any easy thing to do). Please take this course, he is amazing

All I have to say is that Iverson was the best professor I have ever had, and he is an OChem prof. His TAs are also amazing, and he gives so many opportunities to talk to him and learn. Please take him

He makes Ochem so fun and interesting to learn. He is also very very passionate about the subject so he will tell a lot of interesting stories or facts during class. He loves and cares about his students too!

Don't buy the textbook. Iverson is a great professor with fair, but difficult, tests. Do not get behind no matter what you do and take advantage of all of the resources available! The final is worth a lot and no matter what, he'll make you take a test at the exact day/time it's set for (maybe with a time extension) or use it as your drop.

Loved him. I took him during the corona semester of Fall 2020. OChem is tough, but he makes it doable. Don't need the textbook but it helps. Make sure to do old. practice tests as those resemble the real thing and look at the rules of the day resources. Do physical synthesis practice problems before Exam 3 and final. Rewatch lectures before tests.

Dr. Iverson is the best professor I've ever had. He takes a personal interest in your success and he was also very accommodating with the pandemic. His lectures are absolutely incredible and always engaging. That said, it is ochem. You will have to work really hard for the grade you want, but Dr. Iverson does his best to help you out.

You are LUCKY if you have the chance to take him. I was so scared to take Ochem bc I'm an average student and I loved his class and he is hands down my fav prof. He is super accessible outside class despite corona. He goes above and beyond to help you learn and keep you interested in lecture. He also provides a ton helpful materials and practices.

By far the best professor at UT!! Dr. Iverson cares so much about his students and it really shows. OCHEM is hard no matter what but he does all that he can to make it as fun as possible. Daily quizzes, weekly HW, 3 midterms, and a final. He provides so many resources for his students and is honestly so funny and makes his lectures interesting.

Dr. Iverson is by far the most amazing professor I've had at UT period. Not to mention that Organic is already super difficult, Dr. Iverson makes it a class that is definitely doable while inspiring you to push yourself in other ways. He genuinely cares about his students and I can feel his support even through the Covid Pandemic. 10/10 professor

Simply put, I never thought I would like ochem as much as I did! Dr. Iverson is extremely kind, approachable, and encouraging. I've never had a professor work so hard for his students He always stayed late for all of his reviews to answer everyone's questions and understands most students are pre-med and accommodates to that! I love Brent :)

Fall 2018.3 curved midterms with a drop, one final, homework and quizzes which are weighted lower. Be prepared to read the textbook, practice the material off the notes packets, and do the homework if you want guaranteed success. At least 6-8 hours of work per week on this class. However, excellent Ochem foundation and Dr. Iverson is very engaging.

A great professor! Such an honor to listen to Dr. Iverson. He is so smart and cares about the well-being of his students. He records all lectures no instapoll, but he makes going to class fun. Ochem is a hard subject that you have to work to understand, but Dr. Iverson makes the class interesting. Tests are difficult but not impossible.

Iverson is an incredible professor. He makes learning organic chemistry fun! I would try your hardest to get him. Graded primarily on tests the cover literally everything you were taught but you get one drop.

Everything people have written here about Dr. Iverson is true - he is the most inspirational, wholesome, funny, caring, and whatever positive adjective you want to insert professor you'll have. Organic chemistry isn't easy, but you'll learn a lot more than chemistry in his class. Register quick if you want him though, his class fills up fast!

The hype is 100% true! Iverson is the best professor I've ever had. Engaging lectures, clear explanations, and tons of resources (old tests, hws, and mechanism sheets). Don't think I would have loved/understood ochem nearly as much if it wasnt for him. Just wish he also taught ochem 2! (tip: dont buy the molecular model kit he recommends)

Prof Iverson was amazing. He did everything he could to help us do well in Ochem. There was a lot of resources that he gave, and a lot of office hours, problem solving sessions, and past exams posted for us to do. Iverson is amazing, but Ochem was hard in itself. A lot of work was put in this class to get an A, but it's definitely doable.

Believe the hype-- Dr. Iverson is an awesome professor! However, it is very important to note that while he is a stellar teacher, ochem is an inevitably difficult class. This class is conceptually hard to understand, and it does require a lot of work to do well. You learn so much that it makes up for it, though! Love this class!
