Comment:
I took professor Herzfeld for Thermodynamics. She makes herself available to students practically at any time by e-mail or office hours. She is very kind. Very clear in her explanations. She may be intimidating at first. Do not be put off by this because she has a wealth of knowledge and is forever happy to share it with you.

Comment:
A very bright person but she caters to the top five kids and leaves it up to the rest to decipher her seemingly incomprehensible textbook. She remains vague as to what she is going to test you on for both quizzes and exams. Overall, I do NOT recommend this professor and regret ever having taken honors Chemistry

Comment:
I started hating chemistry after this class. I'm glad I only took it for one semeseter and switched to gen. Chem, in which the professor was actually helpful to ALL students, and not just a select few. You have to go through several methods in order to meet up with her and usually it does not end up being helpful with her explanations.

Comment:
Huge mistake on my part for staying in this class. Herzfeld is a professor that highly values unusual teaching methods and students who are receptive to such methodology. However if you are not one of these students this is not the class for you. Her competency at these methods is also questionable. (Terrible explanations, NO lectures ,etc.)

Comment:
We are using the text book she wrote, and it is not bad, just make sure do the homework questions, they really help!!!! I like her, she is not that bad. If she doesn't know your name, it means you are not impressive enough. And she said she is terrible at names, so don't feel bad about it.

I am a freshman currently in her class for the second semester, and I find her extremely helpful, and approachable. The class is incredibly difficult but worth it. Her teaching method is unusual, but once you get the hang of it, its very manageable. I have learned so much, and she has greatly heightened my interest in chemistry. Highly recommend.

OMG, she justs asks homework questions the whole time instead of lecturing. She does make an effort to get to know her students, but sometimes she just flies off the handle if somebody doesnt completely understand a chemistry concept.

Comment:
She's a strict professor that holds very high standards for her students. Her teaching method can be confusing, but only if the student doesn't follow her assignments. Though the class was difficult, if you approach her with a reasonable question, she'll be more than happy to help you. She can be very nice if you get to know her.

Her textbook sux, and she makes us use it. Her class is superficial - she uses them to show off her knowledge rather than helping students understanding the concepts.
