Comment:
The 3.1 Quality this professor has, is extremely misleading. This is the hardest class I have ever taken in my whole life. I wish I listened to the reviews, but I saw some good ones so I decided to take this class and stick with it. Don't even waste your time on this class. The homework is absolutely insane and your grade is based off of two exams.

Way, and I repeat way too much home work. If you have a life, then don't take this class, I took. I have never taken that much home work in my life! Oh, and all the amount of homework that I did, didn't even help my grade in the end.

Comment:
U must watch all of the lectures (2 lectures a week each about 1 hr+ ) &complete the labs (usually under 1 hr), otherwise u r setting urself up 4 failure. This class takes dedication and discipline. Hesse did as good of a job possible to help each of his students succeed via online. Must go into CC testing center to take tests (midterm and final).

Comment:
Professor Hesse really loves Science. At times he can be a bit confusing, but if you talk to him he works hard to help you. This class is a lot of work- homework, labs, etc. The exams are difficult. If you pay attention in class and study, you should be fine.

You better do exactly what he wants on your assignments. Even if you get the right answer on a question, you had better write out every little detail on how you obtained your answer, no matter how unnecessary. If you don't, prepare to be criticized when he checks your homework.

If you like this subject and already have knowledge about it then you may be fine. If you are taking this to get out of taking a Math I would highly suggest you take the Math. He has so much homework, Risk sheets and Labs he feels like science is EVERYBODY life! I cried every class by far the WORST class ever!!! I do not like math of any kind :(

I hate science, but I enjoyed this class! The labs kept the class interesting. As long as you do your homework and lab work it is an easy class to pass!

Comment:
Dr. Hesse...is one of a kind. I took the Hybrid Course and it is workable. The two tests are taken straight from labs and review. As for the HW sheets, if you do the majority of them you will get ALL points. The labs are essentially easy. Tough Class, but what you put in is what you will get out.

Comment:
This has to be the hardest course I've taken at GRCC to date. Dr. Hesse is a nice man, but the workload for the class is ridiculous. Lots of busy work and incredibly hard tests. For being an intro class for NON SCIENCE MAJORS Dr. Hesse does not teach it that way and gets deep into chemistry. Don't take this class if you're looking for a simple lab.

A pretty easy class! Just do all the homework and labs and you will pass. The tests can be challenging but he lets you bring an index card with equations and other reminders. He is a very nice guy and easy to get along with. DO NOT BUY THE TEXTBOOK! Only buy the required note packs. You will not open the book at all.

This teacher was pretty fair. A lot of paper work you must be good or great at being organization. His test can be hard, is online lectures will put you to sleep. But his tutorials for homework are very helpful. last there is a very high odds you don't need the text book.

Comment:
What can I say, this guy may have high expectation and high standards for his students, but if your going for a four year degree, he really helps you prepare for the hard work ahead of you. Odd guy though, one time said I would have to pay a buck if I didn't bring a pencil to class again when I asked him. Yea right! Great Teacher, tough class.

Good luck!!! He challenges you, however, you feel good when you study and do the homework.Don't skip class, you will fall behind fast. I felt like his servant, he is very bossy, and likes things done a certain way. Just let him talk, don't ask questions. I learned alot, very proud of myself for recieving an A, and I survived!

Dr. Hesse is a great guy, and I enjoyed his class.However, I did think that the work load was quite heavy. The tests are also pretty challenging for an entry level class also.

I was in the Hybrid class and was a lot of homework and outside class work we met 1 time a week. Great PP slides for information and homework help. Very good professor cares about your success and wants you to succeed. He was a little high strung for me so I had a hard time concentrating on the material due to his bounciness. Great guy.

Dr. Hesse is one of the best teachers I have had at GRCC! He is very helpful and wants students to succeed. The material may be challenging, and often doesnt feel like in introductory course but he know what he is talking about, and makes it fun so you can understand it. GREAT PROF!
