Doctor Ow is a great example of professors being deattached from their students. I was able to pass the class with an A, but that doesn't mean that it was a good, or even acceptable experience. He uses his textbook on TopHat, and it's both confusing and frustrating with how he embeds questions for concepts before the book even goes over them. His grading scale is strange and I barely scraped by with an A-.

Dr. Ow was amazing. I took him for 14A & 14B during the summer. It was a lot of work, but only because 6 weeks is an accelerated period to learn chemistry, especially if you are taking other classes along with it. I had 0 prior chemistry experience too, so it I had to study a lot. However, Dr. Ow uses an interactive textbook through Tophat which was amazing in my opinion. He wrote the book himself, and the textbook simplifies and presents the material in a very concise manner. It provides a ton of video examples and practice problems so you can really learn at your own pace and self-study efficiently. He uses pre-recorded lectures which are straight to the point and explain the concepts clearly. This is how online classes should be run and I wish more teachers would follow his example. Take Dr. Ow if you can. You won’t regret taking this awesome teacher.
