Take Hardinger for both Chem 14C&D. Hardinger has been my favorite professor thus far. His jokes in lecture are hilarious! Love his sense of humor. He is the most organized professor I've had. Everything you need to know is it the lecture supplement; no catches. He never throws any curve balls on his exams; they are very straight forward. You just have to stay on top of the material. Definitely do all of his past exams before taking his actual exam to get a feel for his testing style. Great professor overall. Highly recommend. Had a disastrous experience with Chem 14A/B, but am doing very well in organic Chem thanks to Hardinger.

Hardinger is awesome. It's easy to stay awake in lecture because his jokes are hilarious. His class is SUPER organized. For me, the workload was very light for this class. All you have to do is memorize the lecture supplement and go over his old exams to get used to his style of testing. This is why Hardinger's awesome. He's one of the few south campus professors to offer his old exams out to us. Not only that, his tests are quite similar to his old exams too! He rarely throws any curveballs. His tests are super fair! However, I advise you to be careful on his exams, as he tends to ask many nitpicky questions such as definitions of certain words or a random fact from the lecture supplement that you wouldn't think he'd ask.

Professor Hardinger is a funny man who made lectures bearable. He definately knows his chemistry and tries to challenge you in several ways. There were three midterms and a final, although the third midterm and final were on the same day!! He exams are challenging but if you do the CFQ and PP along with his the OWLS...you should be ok. This is a difficult class, so dedicate much time to it.

Keep up with all the web supplementals he posts on the web! And PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE as many problems as you can! Chem 30B this qtr was re-organized, so there was a greater emphasis on spectroscopy which wasn't fun. But Hardinger lets you know what he expects from you and doesn't pull "a fast one" on you on his exams.

Dr. Hardinger teaches organic chemistry on a conceptual level. I would highly recommend him for chem 30C. As everyone else has stated, he has a nearly endless amount of helpful resources and practice problems on his webpage. As in any science class, you have to put in put in hard work in order to get an A; however, attending his lectures will give you a good conceptual understanding of the course material.
