Although his lectures were okay, I ended up not doing so well on the ACS final as other Orgo students in different sections.

Comment:
He is seriously the best organic chem teacher at UMBC! Knows his stuff very well and also understand how hard it can be to learn this stuff. Teaches in the best way possible, you'll remember the material very easily. Made me love mechanisms which I hated to do in CHEM 351. Takes attendance, gives quizzes + ACE assignments to help with final grade.

Awesome Professor! Knows how to teach one of the most difficult subjects as Orgo Chem as an easy story telling to toddlers (actually, he often uses chemical stories of his own experience to convey his message). Class was never boring and I always looked forward to go to his class. One of the Professors I will truly miss.

He is a really good professor, he really cares and wants you to learn. There are a lot of opportunities for points, like ace organic, quizzes(which are easy), and attendance. He is very generous.

Honestly one of the best professors I have had in UMBC. very enthusiastic, filled with funny stories, and very knowledgeable. will try to help you in any way. pretty much if you memorize his lecture notes and practice quizes, you will ace the exams. he makes organic chemistry make sense!

Best organic teacher at UMBC! He's really good at what he does and he loves teaching it. And his stories are great. I'm really going to miss Hosmane when I don't have to take anymore Chem.

I am a graduating senior, and Dr. Hosmane is one of my three most favorite professors at UMBC whom I will deeply miss. I took three courses from him, and he was super in all of them. Although he was quite demanding and kept us all very busy with homework and quizzes, I also gained enormously from them. He was always very helpful and down to earth.

I had a hard time understanding his accent, but other than that he was a good teacher and really loved what he was teaching, so he made it interesting. He really wants his students to do well and tries his best to help them understand, but it is not an easy A.

He really loves chemistry, and that helps when it comes to teaching Organic. Nice guy to speak to at office hours. Exams are not easy though, but that doesn?t mean you should not take his class. I highly recommend him for anyone willing to put in the time and effort to understand Organic Chemistry.

Agree 100% with the previous review. Dr. Hosmane is also my favorite teacher. He is cool, energetic, highly enthusiastic and inspiring. Genuinely cares about students. Love his real life chemical experience stories. I never felt orgo so dreadful or difficult because of the way he taught it. He has knack to make such hard subject look so easy.

Most wonderful professor with style, passion, and knowledge! He is very hard but fair. Cared deeply for the success of students. Instantly answers e-mails at any time of day or night. Loved this class!! He is unquestionably the best science professor I ever had at UMBC! Answered every question (some of them very stupid)without getting angry.

Cool teacher, not in the sense that his stuff is easy, but he teaches in a way that really facilitates your understanding. Has great knowledge of organic chemistry applications in real life. Posts all lecture notes on the web, they are all hand written (cool). Basically, the guy know his stuff, and knows how to introduce it to newcomers.

I have never seen a more enthusiastic professor than Dr. Hosmane! He is very excited and full of knowledge about what he teaches. I am immensely enjoying this course. Simply put, he is a great professor, full of humor and vitality. His stories in chemistry make this course ever more enjoyable. I wish all other UMBC professors follow his style!

Hes a very helpful teacher, always willing to help. He has online quizzes, which are hard, but you can use your books on them. The exams are hard because they dont give partial credit. HE IS MUCH BETTER THAN PERKS!!! If you go to class and buy the study giude, you will definitely pass the class. HE also has a lot of study materials available

Gotta agree he's a great professor! If you didn't understand the text you'll definitely understand his class teaching. Stay on top of the work and ask for help when you need it and organic chemistry, especially with Hosmane, is doable.

This professor is definitely one of the best professors to be teaching this course. Not only is he very approachable, but he also explains concepts very clearly and goes over a ton of example problems. But Orgo is a tough course no matter who teaches so make sure you go to class and read the book!

Hosmane is a great person and an excellent professor, I highly recommend him. However, just because HE is great it doesn't mean the CLASS is great. Orgo is still very hard and class average was curved to a C.

Comment:
The best ever....if everyone taught chemistry like him, we would all be passing Organic Chemistry. Before taking this class i was very afraid, because other students scared me of organic, but after taking the orgo 1 with Hosmane, i am much relieved, and found that Organic is a lot easier....love it.
