    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor is my favorite professor thus far. Despite his strong Indian accent, he goes at a decent pace so that each student understands what is going on. His sense of humor and demonstrations keep the class interesting, and he truly loves what he is doing. The course load is doable, but is also challenging. The exams are a little difficult, but he does all he can to help students succeed- as long as you study what you go over in class, you can get Bs and As on the exams. The lab is kind of tiring but it is necessary for all students who take chem.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot more about the structure of atoms and different formulas for finding certain things like wavelength, the number of moles in an atom, number of neutrons present in different atoms, etc. A lot of math is involved but with all the practice on the homework, in class and on your own, they get pretty simple. I also learned more about working in a lab.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, I would suggest completing all of the online homework and then practicing the questions over and over again to study. Also, go over the notes after every class and grasp the material. Additionally, attend SI sessions to get extra practice and ask the TA questions about concepts you are confused on.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Tyson was an incredible lecturer, extreamly friendly, and very understanding. Not only was he a great professor, but he sincerely cared for the class, and was willing to go the extra mile to ensure that his students would understand the material. He also gives us many opportunities to do well in his class, and even gave us second chances on an exam to demonstrate that he believed in teaching and not testing.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how atoms interact with each other and had an in-depth discussion about orbitals. We also learned about stochiometery and the way in which it could be used to apply in real-life situations. We focused on each topic equally, but the main focus of this lecture was how atoms and matter make up the universe and how they function.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would most definitely recommend students to direct inquiries to the professor during his office hours. He is more than willing to help, and he truly wants every student to pass in his class. I would also recommend that students diligently take notes, as it is necessary to understand the material. Do all the homework, and try not to fall behind. It's easy to, but if one spreads out his/her work through the week, the classwork is doable and comprehensive.

    Do the practice exam first when you're studying
