Comment:
Dr. Rieck is really sweet and caring. He had recorded lectures you watch outside of class (put on 2x speed, he talks really slow) and then worksheets inside class, but I enjoyed that set up. 6 'quests' and a final are mainly what you're graded on, so studying before them is very important. He drops 3 missed classes, but participation is 10%.

Great professor, very interactive and willing to help if you are struggling. If you know the material the tests are straight forward and not that hard. Never a surprise on the exam. Can't wait to take 122 lab with him.

I would never take this man ever again in my life. He is not supportive at all and honestly when I met with him for help, he made me feel terrible for struggling in a college course I have never taken in my life. You would excel so much more taking Dr. Luttrell if you want a professor who is supportive and willing to listen.

As a freshman going into Chemistry as my major, I am really lucky to have a professor like Professor Rieck. He is passionate about Chemistry, makes it simple yet complex, and overall a great guy. Definitely deserves a 5 and if you have him as your professor next semester, keep him.

Dr. Rieck is one of my favorite professors Ive had so far. He genuinely cares about his students and is willing to always help. Chem is a hard course but he makes It so interesting and tries his best to help his students succeed. He has many big quizzes but Its better because you are tested on each unit individually. Definitely take him!

I loved professor Rieck, he makes sure you understand the material and seems to care about his students a lot. I want to take him again next semester for chem 122 because his teaching style really makes sure you can grasp the information being taught.

Dr. Rieck is amazing! I hate chemistry, but he made it make sense and was genuinely excited to teach us. He is very understanding, so email him if you have a question or have unexpected something come up. Such a sweet guy, exams are very fair. There's a quiz every week, but he'll tell you what to study for.

Before taking Dr. Rieck's class, I absolutely hated chemistry, but now I love it! Dr. Rieck is very enthusiastic about chemistry. The class requires a lot of hard work, but his exams are fair, and his class has to be one of my favorite classes I've taken here. This class made me contemplate changing my major to chemistry!

I was horrible at chem and actually failed his first exam but I went to his office hours and help sessions and ended up doing really good in his class. I would highly recommend Dr. Rieck to anyone hes an amazing professor.

Dr. Rieck is my favorite professor. Chem 121 was way easier than 122 but that is just the class itself. You have to study a lot for both the exams and quizzes. Dr. Rieck was always available to help and is very caring. Go to every class, go to SI, study hard, and you will do fine. Even though it is a hard class, Rieck made it easier to understand.

Best proffessor I've had at SU. Chem 121/122 is an overall hard class and you definitely need to study but he does a very good job of making complex topics easy to understand. Also, exams are super easy but he makes it very apparent how to study and prepare for exams to do well. Very helpful, makes lecture funny and very caring.

His exams/quizzes are a complete surprise from what you learn in lecture. He is a really tough grader and his exams/ quizzes/homeworks are just really hard in general. I heard he wasn't this bad in chem 121, but for chem 122 his coursework is much more difficult.

Dr. Rieck is an amazing chemistry professor. You do have to study but if you use the online homework as practice you will learn a lot. He also gives practice exams and will answer any questions you have prior to a test. His lectures are always very interesting and he is very energetic. You will have online homework and quizzes once a week.

Dr. Rieck is an amazing teacher. He doesn't take attendance but has clicker questions each class that counts towards a quiz grade. He puts up samples tests before each exam that are very helpful. If you do the extra practice he puts up online you will be fine. He is a very clear professor and a fair grader. Exams will be difficult if u don't study.

Dr. Rieck is such a great teacher and is so willing to help anyone that needs it. He's extremely educated in what he is teaching, so you'll really learn a lot after this class. His exams are just like his practice problems and sample exams. If you pay attention in class it's an easy A, you don't really even need to use the textbook!

One of the best chemistry professors at SU. Lectures are clear and understandable. Definitely go to office hours if you have a question about anything! You have to study to pass the class. He gives practice exams which are very helpful. Do the practice problems in the book. He's willing to help students and loves when people show up to office hours

Dr. Rieck is an incredible teacher. He makes sure to give practice problems and tests to ensure you do well on his exams, I never got anything lower than an 85. He replaces your lowest exam grade with your final, if you do better on it. He's funny and is often available for extra help. I am definitely taking him for Chem 122.

Dr. Rieck is honestly your best choice for chemistry. Yes I failed but that was in NO way his fault (unfortunately I can only blame myself for that one). He gives quizzes every Friday which could make or break you, along with a lot of homework which is easy and boosts your grade. I am retaking the course and I am 100% enrolling in his class again.

This class is basically math based but he doesn't go in depth in the math. We had a quiz solely on math but the only thing he talked about that week was how the periodic table was created.
