Comment:
If you can read thoughtfully and really want to understand the way some medicine works in our body then this is for you. Theres a good bit about the different methods of discovering new medicine. It was interesting and helped tie together much of what I learned in all my biochem, genetics etc. classes. So much makes sense that was blurry at best.

Very tough class, and ever tougher professor. Quizzes once a week that are impossible. Throws so much material at you each lecture and doesn't tell you what you need to know or don't need to know for the exams. Makes practice exams that aren't relevant at all to the actual exams. Doesn't listen to students when they express concern of their grades.

get ready to teach yourself, didn't learn anything in lecture. if you already have a good understanding of the material, and know what questions to ask then you'll be better off. online quizes and tests. on the test you cant even see what you get wrong. My vote: take a different prof.

Comment:
Try to take any other professor... The first few weeks I only used class notes and found his teaching method to be really confusing. After performing poorly on the first test I started to use the textbook to study, that saved my grade. If you have to take him, just use this textbook. Only 9% of the class made an A, compared to 30% w other profs.

Comment:
The outside of class material like masteringchem and online quizzes are tough but manageable but his tests are fare. I think he's better than others say because he teaches more straight forward but you will need to read the text to understand. Ochem is hard no matter who you take and I'd definitely take him again,

Comment:
Dr. Arya is super helpful!! He always reviews before the tests and answers questions if you have any. It is difficult to contact him outside of class though, and his office hours were right after class which really doesn't help much. overall I like his teaching style and would totally take him again!! He's hard, but I also learn ALOT!! love him!

Comment:
One of the hardest classes I've ever taken. So smart that he doesn't know how to accurately give the info. Multiple choice test but still didn't recieve above 50. Outside quizzes and hw are so difficult I didn't even try. Super fast pace. I ended up dropping the course

Not enough space for a true description of the nightmare of an instructor that is Dev Arya. You WILL struggle to keep up. He will offer to help outside of class. However, he won't stay long, and if someone smarter than you attends the after class session, good luck getting his attention. Avoid his class at all costs. Two words: Transfer credits.

Comment:
Very difficult even though he makes himself available for extra help. He teaches straight from the book's power points and gives quizzes on each chapter. Tests have a strict time limit and are really hard. He curves to a 75 average at the end so if you've got a C/D you'll probably end up with a B in the class

Comment:
The class was very fast paced in the summer. We met everyday and almost finished 1 chapters every 2 day. He gave prompt feedback and was available to meet whenever I had concerns. His style is quite rigorous but he is very willing to help if you ask for it. I did learn more than I thought I would.

Comment:
If you have to take him, then do so but know that it will be a long semester. Although he has no control over masteringchemistry, the dates are back to back to do homework and more often than not, he does not even realize what he is doing. If you do not like chemistry, do not take him. He doesn't seem enthaustic about teaching and is not a people.

This was my second course with him and I fared much better knowing what to expect. He teaches to a higher level than most and so reading the material beforehand is a must to suceed. Gave about 24% As so I think grading was fair.

Comment:
He tries to use the Socratic Method to teach, but sucks at it. He barely ever covers what's on the tests. He seems to put as little effort into his teaching duties as possible. Hard to get a hold of, and doesn't explain things well. He's cruel when it comes to grading too. Class had a 60% avg on the final, and he used it as was. Want an A? B? Avoid

OK, do NOT take Dr. Arya if you want easy (not that any ochem's really easy). He's hard, LOTS of out of class work and quizzes, you MUST read book and do practice problems, and tests kick your tail. BUT you will learn a ton I promise that. In the end if you worked hard, he will help you with your grade. Worth it, but be prepared to work.
