Today is the last day of the lecture and I thought Luceigh gave us a really touching speech at the end. ^_^ Something I'll never forget as a student here at UCLA. I just want to say that Luceigh is a really good professor, she makes chemistry so much easier for me to learn. Personally, I never like chemistry much, but after this course, chemistry isn't so bad as I think. I am really lucky to have her as my professor for Chem 14B. It's rather sad that Luceigh will no longer teach next year, or else I would definitely get her class again for 14C and 14D.
I took the time to read the reviews about Dr. Luciegh before taking this class and I would definitely have to agree with those who have praised her for the great teacher she is. I watched for the condescending attitude and her making a big deal about people coming in late, and the only thing I noticed was her taking the time to remind those who have no consideration for others to be courteous enough to sit in the back and not distract everyone else. I have a love and desire for chemistry like never before, and it's all because of Prof. Luceigh's class. (And my awesome T.A. You rock Heather!!:) You're also not obligated to keep the T.A. you get if you like another one more. Anyway, I'm thinking that those who do not like her did poorly in one or more of her classes. She gives plenty of practice problems, which it's up to the student to do. She does move a little fast at times, but it's also the student's responsibility to get the extra help and study time in to work on the rough spots. I had to learn this the hard way a little while back. Her old and new exams are almost carbon copies of each other (the values and question vary of course) as far as key concepts that she tests on. All I did was do the practice problems and the old exams and I managed to get really good scores on both midterms (the final is yet to come). Tutoring, if available, doesn't hurt either. The key in her class in practice, practice, practice. She doesn't throw curve balls and she doesn't grade all of the exam questions (the T.A.s grade some as well), so you can't get on her case for grading too hard. She also made a note of your grade being so low that dropping the course would be the best thing to do. On a positive note, I am loving this class. I look forward to lecture every Mon., Wed. and Fri. and I am actually looking forward to the final (and no, I'm not some nerd or chemistry freak). I'm also glad that she is teaching the entire series (14B,C,and D). It's Professors like Betty Luceigh who make a subject that many think is difficult to grasp into something anyone can succeed at, if you just commit your time and effort to working hard.:)
