    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is undoubtedly one of the most difficult courses I have taken in my undergraduate career, that being said it was also one of the most rewarding. It will require that you study an exhaustive amount, however, the professor is genuinely a great person and will encourage you to reach out to him if you need any help.

    Course highlights:

    In class demonstrations of reactions were definitely a highlight, you will see more of these second semester. It prepares you for general chemistry II really well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study often and go to his office hours. Definitely, do not wait until the night before to study for the exams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course only for those who really enjoy science. This class was extremely difficult as a freshman. The exams were hard and the homework was tedious. However, if you learn the concepts and the skills, it will prepare you well for the rest of your time at BC.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were definitely the demonstrations he showed us in class, such as how burning different elements produced different colors of light, and why they did that. I learned a great deal, especially the physical chemistry parts. The chemical equations you learn serve you well for the rest of college, and maybe even post-grad. The most important thing that pre-med students learn is the following. Medical school is not meant for everyone. Those who do well will probably never use the materials learned here again, and those who do not do well are not doomed. The skill learned here is the thought process of problem-solving, and that is what is most useful as a physician.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Three words. Study, study, and study. My Friday nights consisted of studying from when class ended in the early afternoon to dinner time. The rest of the weekend was also spent completing homework. If you do not study hard and properly, you will most likely fail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thought this course was very informative and helpful for anyone who would be entering a very math heavy chemistry career.

    Course highlights:

    I learned much more about myself and how to re-learn to study and practice during this course. Because of the nature of the class periods compared to the exams there was significantly more time spent teaching myself rather than reviewing from class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be able to teaching yourself. You must be dedicated to learning the material outside of the class periods because you will not learn it during the class.
