General Chemistry I
Pros Pretty acknowledgeable, posted exercises and examples that really helped for his midterms and the final
Cons Thick Russian accent (not sure if Russian, but thick anyway) which is hard to understand, but you'll get used to it, regular weekly huge assignments which may be an overload of work (but it helps for the quiz and exams)
Personal Experience I had a rough start since I sucked at chemistry in high school (70s), but I ended up having a 91 which is fine.

Amazing old school experienced prof, wish i had his chalkboard handwriting, incredibly neat diagrams and drawings. He goes over all types of problems you'll get in midterms and finals...notes are concise and doesn't make you remember/memorize things you don't have to know for the final (prepares us extremely well) Make sure to do all the assignments to keep up and review the textbook or go see him (super nice)...would definitely take him again (makes jokes and understands students' struggles)

Amazing teacher! Really knows his stuff and explains well as long as you listen. You will need to buy the textbook however, and there might be stuff youll need to teach yourself because of how fast he goes. Midterms are REALLY easy as long as you do the assigned problems every week. Pretty easy to get 90 if youre willing to work hard.

His classes are absolutely boring. He doesn't give out powerpoints unlike other teachers, and writes everything by hand on the blackboard. He only gives examples, and doesn't explain things clearly. He doesn't inform us about exceptions, and expects us to know them from the textbook, when he never said a word about reading the textbook. Do not take him

Don't take him for organic chem. His tests are too hard. There's a lot to learn for organic chemistry, and since he writes everything on the board (which is slow), he rushes through the whole course so it's very hard to understand or remember anything he's saying because you won't find yourself stopping to listen to anything he says. You just keep on writing. Sometimes he doesn't even teach all the material so it's common to ask notes from friends. Doesn't even post anything on omnivox

Vukov does all notes and examples on the chalkboard. His style of teaching forces you to come to every class. Midterms are difficult, however the final does resemble problems done in class and the midterms. His marking is quite harsh.

Vukov is probably the best chem teacher I've ever had. I might be exaggerating slightly but it's not far from the truth. His class is highly entertaining. I've never been bored and he maintains good relations with students. It's easy to approach him with questions and he genuinely likes to help. His tests somewhat challenging if you don't study for them but overall they're not too hard. The second exam in the chem 1 class is usually a bit tough but it's not overwhelming. All in all. Take him!!!

Vukov is a great chemistry teacher. However, he is quite old fashioned as all he does is lecture and not post anything online (no notes, no ppts, doesn't even update your grades). Must be clever and catch onto everything he says to understand all the course material. On the plus side, he is very friendly and funny so you won't dread class

I had him for General Chem. He's pretty funny and sarcastic which made the course interesting and fun. He's helpful if you have questions in class but sometimes makes mistakes on the board which can confuse you if you're having trouble with the course material in general. He gives weekly quizzes which keep you on your toes and is super helpful in labs, I would strongly recommend him if you're interested in chemistry and have a good sense of humor.

LITERALLY did not learn ANYTHING in his class. Although he is a nice man, unless you have A LOT of previous knowledge in chemistry, it is incredibly hard to do well in his class. He goes SUPER fast and barely stops even if you ask him to. For the midterms and the final, it is impossible to study with his notes as they are only examples that we have done on the board. very disorganized teacher also. Do not recommend him at all.

NYA: I did not find him super helpful in understanding the theory, but his examples/notes are so helpful... and he gives quizzes every week which really forces you to keep up with the material. In the end, the final was really straightforward if you listened to him in class. The only problem I had with him was that he isn't usually there during his office hours. Other than that,you should take him because he really prepares you for the finals!

Mr.Vukov is quite a nice teacher. Even though you spend most of the class taking notes, he still cracks a funny joke every now and then. The best part about this teacher is that there are no surprises. The notes are filled with clear and concise examples. If you study well and do what you have to do, you'll do more than fine.
