This is my first ever bruinwalk review but I felt like I had to write one because the reviews on here doesn’t do Pang justice. He’s a very effective professor and gives little hints to help you memorize stuff while also being funny. Also he prints out the slides for the lectures which makes it easier to follow and take notes since you don’t have to worry about missing important info since most of it is already there (rip the trees tho lol). Pang also gives you a study guide for the midterm and final with solutions like what an angel. The study guide is harder than actual exams so you’ll do well if you just study off of it. The labs are time consuming but the manual gives you step to step directions. Some of the reviews blamed Pang for the structure of the class but it’s a freaking lab of course it’s going to have a heavy workload and every 14bl professor is required to assign those labs. Overall Pang is a real homie and I wish he taught the regular chem classes because I would’ve gotten way better grades with him as the professor

The lecture was pretty boring, almost all the material is a repeat of 14A and 14B. Pang as a professor was pretty awesome though. Nice, personable guy who would occasionally throw out jokes in lecture, but would come back to the point quickly. He prints out copies of his slides for everyone to write on during lecture, which is awesome. I really got the vibe that he cared about his students. During office hours he was pretty chill. Labs were fun if you like hands on stuff. Overall, ok class, good professor.

Pretty easy class since most material is review from Chem 14A/B. Midterm was very easy while the final was slightly difficult. Pre- and post-lab reports are easy if you follow directions but are time-consuming since they're hand-written in your lab notebook. There are also some group lab reports which can be annoying to schedule. Pang is a homie though; he prints slides for every lecture and is so cute and funny!

Pang is so nice, engaging, and genuinely cares about student learning. He prints out all the lecture slides so if someone grabs you one you don't really need to go to lecture. Lab attendance and PPE is very strict though. Overall, I would say this class is easy it's just a lot of busy work. Tests are fair and simple if you've taken 14B recently and with a good professor.

Professor Pang was so great. The material is a lot of review from A and B.
The tests can be kind of difficult but the study guides help a lot! The midterm was very similar to the study guide. He answers any questions that you may have and will go over things again in office hours if you need help with it!! 10/10 would recommend to take BL with Pang.

Professor Pang is a truly amazing professor. He has possibly been one of the best professors I have had the pleasure of being taught by. Pang is extremely caring and passionate about his students and their learning and understanding of course material. I always felt welcome asking the simplest of questions and Pang always took the time to explain his answers in depth, yet easy to understand. It is very rare to find a professor who genuinely cares about his students, especially in south campus courses. Pang is a rare exception as he effortlessly incorporates humor and life into a fast paced and naturally difficult class. He also makes communication a priority by continuously emailing students with regards to the labs and course material (even going so far as to email students who did not do so well on his exams). If you are forced to take 14Bl I definitely recommend taking Pang, the course won't be easy, but you'll at least have someone who cares about your success and understanding. Also go to his office hours, he's really nice!

Prof. Pang is so nice and funny and clearly cares about his students. Labs and reports were tedious but mostly just busy work. Fairly easy midterm and final as material is mostly from 14A and B. Definitely recommend this professor and taking it during the summer.

Professor Pang is an awesome instructor. He really makes you understand chemistry and labs on a conceptual level rather than just mindlessly plugging away at equations and not making sense of them. He is extremely kind and patient! If you don't understand a concept and attend his office hours, he will make sure that you will really understand it. I highly recommend taking Professor Pang
