Professor Dr. Yost Reviews
Prof: Dr. Yost / Spring 2021
Dec 20, 2021
So far, this course has been the best one that I have taken at UF. Dr. Yost is a genuinely kind and caring man who truly wants what is best for his students, but also wants to help them succeed. Dr. Yost does not baby anybody, however, he provides you with all the necessary materials and to allow you to get a good grade. As long as you put in some effort, you can get an A in this class. The lowest test grade is dropped and lots of extra credit opportunities! This class was just genuinely fun.
It is general chemistry, so it is useful to a degree, however, Yost also prepares you for Orgo, by introducing you to some concepts at the end of the semester. While he prepares you for future classes, Yost also wants to make his class applicable to the real world, so he disregards normal Chem 2 teachings and goes into cool things like atmospheric chemistry and polymer chemistry that you can see in the real world. He also has guest lecturers present throughout the semester that show some of their cool research.
Dr. Yost is amazing! He provides multiple explanations for topics if you are confused and is very open to helping during office hours. He tries to make his class fun and prepare you for the future. Cons: ???
Just put in some effort and take the class seriously. You will get a good grade and interact with the best professor at UF.
