Tufts University: Robert Dewald - Chemistry - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Robert Dewald | CHEM001 - Chemical Fundamentals| Chemistry2005-05-16

Dewald is a very old-school professor, whose idea of a curve is large (12- or 12-point) numeric ranges for each letter. He's a bit zany in class but he most definitely knows his stuff, and he tells fairly amusing stories, which helps get you through the early-morning lectures. If you go to all the classes and recitations, follow his handed out notes, and most importantly do all of the problem sets, it's a completely reasonable course. Unfortunately, if you don't do all of these things, you will find it very difficult.

Look for lots of work. Problem sets about every 10 days (sometimes every 5 though) took 5-10 hours. I can say that it's possible to do a pSet in an all-nighter, but not recommended. Lab every week, report takes 1-3 hours. 1-hour recitations fairly helpful with pSets. Dewald said at the beginning of the course that chemistry is 98% work, 2% intelligence, and that's definitely how his class was.
