Chapman, Sally
General Chemistry 2001

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor Chapman can be cold but she is not nearly as bad as the other reviews portray. She is really an excellent teacher who knows and cares if you've been putting in effort. She explains the material really well-chemistry made a lot more sense this year than it did in my previous two years of chemistry.

This class has the most office hours of any class offered at Barnard- 50 hours a week; they are helpful,if you don't understand the material but don't expect her to do the problem sets for you. Lab office hours are great- Professor Holtz is really helpful.

Workload:

It is a lot: a lab and a hand-in problem set each week. Three midterms and a final. All very reasonable and fair.
