Comment:
Absolutely the smartest man I've ever met. He's flexible to meet outside of class and loves it when you ask questions. Don't get offended if he picks on you, don't be afraid of him, and DO THE HOMEWORK (that's where he gets a lot of his test questions). The class itself is extremely difficult because it's Orgo and you learn 16 chapters in 10 weeks.

Brilliant man. Had him for Orgo I and am retaking his Orgo II class after I dropped it two years ago. This class is incredibly difficult, but we are all learning how to think. He will give you a hard time and you might want to die sometimes, but it's all worth it. Do not bother taking him if you aren't going to work, though.

Hardest class I have ever taken, but the most enjoyable. Dr. Zand always keeps you on your toes and constantly challenges you. He knows that most will forget a lot of Organic Chemistry, but the critical thinking skills gained will stick with you for a long time.

Comment:
Unbeleivably hard professor for an unbelievably hard class. Literally lectures for all 2 Hours of every 2 hour class two days a week for 10 and a half weeks. Tests have problems nothing like the suggested homework. Homework is not mandatory but you will fail if you dont do it. He is probably the most brilliant person I know but isn't a great prof.

Great prof for lab. Does great job of explaining procedures. Pre-lab quizzes are rather tough though. Still, I highly recommend him.

Zand is a great teacher in general. Yes his test are quite difficult and he expects a lot of you, you will learn the material. he also puts old tests in the library to study off of which can be very helpful. if you have to learn chemistry, zand is the teacher to take it with.

I really like Zand. He demands a TON from his students, and you will need to study a LOT, but by the end you will know the subject inside and out. He explains things perfectly and is brilliant with Chemistry. I recommend him.

Had him for Lab. Very low tollernce if you do not understand. Must MUST do your lab reports. Its an easy way to get a WAG booster... do prelab because he gives quizes each lab period on the lab of the day.

Great Professor. You WILL understand O-Chem at the end rather you like it or not. Test are tough and CANNOT be cribbed. Cares a lot about the students and just wants them to learn. "The grass is growing."
