Learning physical chemistry online? My professor is bad

  1. Apr 3, 2013 #1
    We are learning about NMR and ESR right now.

    I know physical chemistry is a difficult topic to learn because there is a lot of background information that you have to be aware of in order to understand things.

    My professor does not reference these background topics, speaks with a strong accent, has difficult to read handwriting, and makes occasional factual errors as well. This is well known among the student body. We have a weak chemistry department.

    So... is it still worthwhile to attend lecture? My plan right now is to sit in the back and have my computer with me so I can google stuff when I'm confused.

    I might just stop attending, however, if there were a good online source to use instead.

    PS: I already know to ask questions on physics forums and I may just start using it exclusively to do the homework.
