Krishna Kumar | CHEM051 - ORGAN CHEM I | Chemistry2006-05-17

Review:
Prof Kumar is one if not the best professor at Tufts. He takes a boring subject like organic chemistry and turns it into a compelling and interesting subject. I truly enjoyed this class and everything is clear, grading schemes, grades and he injects humor in the class.The class itself is rigorous and a lot of fun to attend. Never thought I would say this about a chem class. Kumar rocks! I wish I could take more classes with him.

Prof. Kumar is fine but the class requires a lot of memroization. So much of it my brain is hurting. Kumar also regularly goes over time in class. Not cool.

Review:
Kumar knows his stuff like the back of his hand. I once asked him a obscure question about material in class and he told me oh, that was something I didn't mention in class but it was on the problemset. Is this guy a computer or what?

Workload:
Lots of work but you can't complain about not having enough problems.

Krishna Kumar | CHEM051 - ORGAN CHEM I | Chemistry2006-03-06

Review:
In the class Kumar appears really concerned but I am not so sure outside it. I asked him couple of questions and he turned back to me. Was quite embarrassing. I wonder if he is busy or was just trying to see if I was prepared.

Workload:
Amount of work is A LOT. I dont memorize things well.

Review:
Kumar is smart organized, meticulous. I however am not and therefore had to drop the class after third exam. So I am sitting in his class for the second semester so that I can learn something. Pretty good class if you have 30 hours a week to spend on it.

Workload:
Insane amount of work. This is orgo my friends.

Krishna Kumar | CHEM051 - ORGAN CHEM I | Chemistry2005-12-01

Review:
Prof. Kumar is one of the best professors I have had at Tufts. He is very clear in his explanations and is interested in making sure the whole class is understanding the information. He is not like some other prof. in the chem. department, specifically one who left this year, who are trying to fail everyone. Prof. Kumar is very fair when it comes to tests.
Orgo is a lot of work, but with a Prof. like Kumar it is so much better. I actually am really enjoying this class.

Workload:
A lot of problems and reading.

Krishna Kumar | CHEM052 - ORGAN CHEM II | Chemistry2005-05-16

Review:
Prof. Kumar was fair but I guess he runs a large research program. Do not expect him to spend one on one time with you outside class. He holds office hours regularly although they are so popular that you may be able to get 1-2 Q in! Very tough prof. but he is one of those intel big-picture guys who also knows the details.

Workload:
Quiz, problem sets, exams, you will be living dreaming orgo through the entire year.

Great stuff. I dreaded orgo but actually got into it quite a bit. The best course I ever took at Tufts. I graduated in 2002. Smart, smart man. Sometimes I think he actually knows more than what can fit into a single brain.

Orgo is hard - let?s face it. We got enough assignments to keep an army busy.
