Comment :
This course at the beginning will scare the crap out of you (especially if you are not a fan of chemistry), but the prof is a really great guy who wants his students to do well (take advantage of his office hours, as TAs are slightly questionable ..) The best part of this course was that there was no final exam! There is a total of 3 midterms which you must have a cumulative of over 50%to pass the course, a 30% waste water treatment plan design project, individual lab and a literature review. Overall, I enjoyed the prof's teaching and i advise you to WRITE WHATEVER RANDOM stuff he puts on the board ..his writing is literally all over the place, but I have seen it examples show up on the midterms!!
