    Ghosh is just amazing. He is a wonderful professor that covers everything you need to know for the exams in class. ...Continue reading

    He will promptly answer any email you send to him. Take him! Gives you step by step mechanisms and writes clear notes, so when you go to study you actually remember the lecture. If you do the practice tests you pretty much know whats going to be on the test. Go to organic cafe for practice problems. He is so funny because he laughs at his corny jokes that are actually funny ...Continue reading

    Ghosh is just amazing! If you had Jon, You need to take his partner in crime, Ghosh to enjoy OChem. Pay attention in lecture, study old exams and you will pass. If you have to take it, though, Ghosh is your man. ...Continue reading

    I'm not very good at memorizing, and there was a lot of memorizing, but hey, that's ochem. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    I am a good student, not going to lie. I study hard, and I love OCHEM in general, yet I had a hard time in this class. I feel like some of the nomenclature he puts on the test is kinda random , and some times there are reactions on the exam that are not in his ppt or book. Hes nice, but not the best teacher. He is approachable too which good. ...Continue reading

    Ochem 241B is made to be hard and the only real challenge with this class is that he really makes you parse the material you learn, couple it with the material from the book, and apply it to problems. His tests aren't too bad because they only make you apply what you've studied. You just have to study the material and make sure you know it. ...Continue reading

    I received an A both semesters of Ochem. Thinks students are lazy and only care about grades. Be prepared to teach yourself. DOES NOT CURVE (even when test averages are 40%). Rude, unhelpful... Take this class with ANYONE else. That being said, do not take Dr. Polt. I've taken a good Ochem professor and a bad one. Believe me, Dr. Polt is a bad one. ...Continue reading

    His test are not difficult, but he's teaching is just so terrible that it makes test hard. Find anyone else. If you believe you're smart and think these raters are just those lazy students who didn't read the book or that skipped class, well think again. Be smart and take another professor. You'll learn much more and even get a better grade. ...Continue reading

    Easily the worst professor I have ever had in my entire life. He literally post Wikipedia pages that he skims over and is off to the next topic. He just doesn't know how to teach. I would not recommend this professor because you will not only learn nothing that you don't teach yourself and its by no means an easy A. ...Continue reading

    Worst prof I've had in 4 years at UA. He is unclear in his teaching and it is clear a large amount of his students have no idea what he is talking about. I went to every lecture and left with nothing. His tests are very hard. The only way to pass this class is to teach yourself everything. Choose a different professor. ...Continue reading
