I'm going to be honest about my experience in this course. Dr. Liu definitely knows her stuff, but as far as this course, I was on the edge of having a heart attack after every exam. The course is quite simple as far as content, but if you do not catch on quickly then your exams will show it. I did very poorly in the beginning of the class; most did. Fears of dropping, changing majors. I heard it all.
In the end, you learn that Dr. Liu is extremely concerned with our learning and will work with you to improve your understanding. I haven't pushed myself as hard as I ever did at UCLA. I recommend this course over the 20B course if you have a strong grasp of kinetics and thermodynamics beforehand. Otherwise, be prepared to study hard. It's a rollercoaster as far as expecting how well you'll do. It isn't bluntly easy and enjoyable as others make it sound.
Liu is the bestest chem. prof. I've ever had. I got an A in the class. She explained everything soooooooooooooooo well, there is no excuse in not getting an A if your took the time and did your homework. She is so nice during office hrs. and she had 3 a week. Her tests were point-heavy but as long as you did your work, the final will bring you up. There's always this one really hard problem but that's what makes chemistry so fun. Liu also had a great TA (Chris Liu) who actually really knew chem. and the combination worked really really well. If you work for it, there is noooooooooo excuse for not getting a good grade in the class. Also you get the bonus of learning statistical mechanics which was really awesome. Take Liu- she's the best!!!!!!
