Comment: Exams are fair and easy to study for: just look at old midterms. The format of his midterms is very consistent, he just changes the questions. OK lecturer, teaches out of the book. My friend says he sounds like Seinfield.

Comment: Ellman started slow so even if you never took a Chem class before this you learn your basics very well. But once things started he clearly explains all the material very well in lecture. Practice drawing because that's what a lot of Chem112a is: mechanisms.

Comment: Ellman is fantastic. His boardwork is immaculate and the notes cover everything in detail. His midterms and finals follow the exact same format year-to-year, which makes them exceeding manageable. Lab isn't bad compared to the 4 series and hw is completely optional.
