Comment:
Chemistry w/Peploski was as good as it could be. Chemistry was a difficult class for me but Jim was a good teacher. His lectures are interesting because he does experiments in class and they are very fun. He goes fast through each topic which can be difficult but his homework, labs, and recitation help a lot.

Solid class and great demonstrations during lecture. Can be a little bit out of touch but covers the material thoroughly and keeps lectures interactive. Doesn't take questions in class but is very accessible in person; he doesn't like emails all that much but will respond.

Dr. Jim is a good professor. He can rumble a bit in his lectures, but they are very good lectures and are critical in doing good in the course. Doing the practice exams before the tests are helpful, but also make sure you study from your workbook. He likes to throw some trick questions in there.

If you have trouble in Dr. Jim's class, you are not trying. Online he provides recorded lectures, notes, practice problems, and practices tests that are about identical to the actual tests. Take the time study and you will pass.

Dr. Jim tries to keep chemistry intriguing. I have a lot of respect for him teaching my CM 131 class with over 600 students in it.

Dr Jim makes college chem so much easier and more understandable than most other college professors. While he has his moments, he is an overall great and caring man/professor. I feel like I truly learned chem from him and grew to enjoy it. PS he makes his exams super easy to study for with 5 or 6 practice exams that are very similar to the real dea

The classes don't bore. Be attentive in class from the beginning or you'll get lost along the way in each class. One HW assignment per week which was great.

Comment:
He's the most annoying prof that you will ever have. You fill in the blanks in a notebook for class notes like you are in the 3rd grade. He does unsafe experiments to try to impress students. His exams are not bad but he tries to think he is smart and tries to trick students with dumb questions. His answer keys always have mistakes.

Solid professor, teaches more than memorization, tries to make students come to conclusions on their own. Tests are hard, but if you pay attention in lecture and discussion, do the homework and study a moderate amount you'll do fine. You CANNOT guesswork your way through Chem 1 or 2.

Comment:
Dr. Jim is an entertaining lecturer, but sometimes his antics can get old. He sometimes does awesome demonstrations. He is clear on what he expects, and clearly knows his stuff, but is not always accesible to students. His class is tough, especially if you haven't taken AP Chem, but if you work hard, it isn't too hard to pass. Overall a decent prof

Comment:
Dr. Jim was mediocre. He really counts on a "wow" factor from his potentially dangerous experiments to keep students interested, and is difficult to work with outside of class. If you want a professor that cares about more than his tenure and research, don't take his courses if possible.

Really one of the only "big campus" experiences available to students at Clarkson, most other classes are a lot smaller. It's understandable that he doesn't have time for every student but he can be nicer about it.
