Comment:
Professor Mombourquette was one of the worst professors I had this semester. He never replies to emails (even after multiple attempts) and gives out labs that leave everyone confused. Since the course was online, it seemed like it was every man for themselves and there was no support provided. The class was very disorganized.

He really did want everyone to do well. He's easily accessible so don't be afraid to reach out to him (expect a quick response).

Found the lectures to be pretty boring and didn't feel like I was learning much. The prof never really gave enough practice problems and explained the concepts in detail. It's worth checking out the Wize prep course since it reviews the same material and they had some good practice problems.

I really liked Dr. Mombourquette as a prof. He's genuinely very passionate about the material and that makes a big difference in capturing student's interest. He also really cares about the success of his students, and will make the effort to help you out if you reach out. Love this guy, wish I could have taken another course with him.

Comment:
Easily one of the worst profs in the chemistry department at Queen's. Particularly in labs, he teaches students things that are 100% incorrect. His own research failed, he is not up to date on chemistry, and is a good example of tenure gone wrong.

Comment:
CHEM 112 IS THE WORST COURSE AT QUEENS. Mombourquette seems like a nice guy but really he'd rather be anywhere than with chem 112. Be prepared to teach yourself the entire course, and make friends so you can do the lab write ups together because they arn't hard just extremely tedious and frequently unclear.

Really fair prof! If you work hard, you will be able to earn a good grade. He's an understanding prof; if for some reason you flaked on grades, don't take advantage of him. Talk to him honestly and he'll definitely help out if he can. Great prof!

Sometimes gets a bad rap when compared to Newstead but he is definitely the teacher to take the time to help you. Attend classes, he explains stuff and is always there for you after and during class to clarify.

Don't really understand the hate here. He took over for Newstead for half of this semester and has done a great job. Quantum chemistry is a weird and difficult subject and he manages to explain it pretty well. A bit quirky but overall a pretty great prof.
