I am currently in university right now retaking organic chem even though I could have exempted it, but honestly, this man's notes are superior. You don't need to think to understand these reactions with this man. It is amazing. It's only when I retook it that I've come to appreciate this man's notes even more! I'm rating now because of how awesome he is haha

Super funny teacher, but found his notes were lacking in detail and his tests were tricky. read the textbook to supplement his notes. I love chem but organic is hard and he doesnt dumb it down for you

Maybe not his other classes but Organic was hard. Worst offence: asking broad questions, so be concise. Notes are amazing! Do the problems and you'll be fine. His chem fun facts are hilarious!

He's a great teacher. He has the most amazing sense of humor. Don't believe what you read about him. He's not that hard. Study and you'll pass for sure. The only thing is didn't like is the way he draws his mechanisms in organic. Very confusing; you can never understand what goes where.

OMG! He knows SO much, is interesting, with a marvellous sense of humour, cool about marks and lab reports and such, explains extremely well, SUPERB! Most admirable teacher in the chem department. His exams are hard tho, but they're meant to really test ur understanding and not ur memorization.

Most are rating Alex based on the material. Organic is the hardest college chem class. He's great at teaching it, but you have to be good at learning it!
