    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it involves very interesting material and problem solving. It does include math but I found it to be a very intriguing course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about reactions and the best part was when we got to go into the lab and create the reaction. This allowed us students to further out knowledge by experiencing the chemical reaction first hand and watching it happen in person rather than on paper.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend doing the practice problems, reviewing your notes, and most importantly attending class! I find that students that skip class tend to miss a lot of materiel and fall behind,

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This Chem 105 course is my favorite course I have taken this semester. This is because most of the learning comes from the class lectures, and if students had paid enough attention during the lectures,they would not need to read the textbook. They would still need to practice with the chapter exercises, however. Students may think that Professor Poirot talks a bit too fast and goes by the information too quickly, but that's what makes things interesting and challenging. I like it when classes goes fast but also be concise.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the lectures. Even though the class was fifty minutes long the classes seemed very short, because Professor Poirot draws the students into the subject. they make them forget about the time and I wished that the c;ass was longer. Professor Poirot is very passionate about the subject and it makes us want to succeed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students should always do the exercises given by the Professor. They may not have to read the textbook because the lecture is good enough, but students should always do the exercises for each chapter to practice their skills. Also, Professor Poirot would assign some Problem sets, either graded or non-graded problem sets, and these will help students strengthen their knowledge and skills in the subject.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is great at explaining the course matter and does not treat you like you are going to be a professional chemist. He understands it is an introductory course and the level of course work and breadth of knowledge both reflect that.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights are always the professors use of humor to add to the lecture material. It reflects his enthusiasm in the field and makes the lectures easier to follow.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, read over material ahead of time, and always ask questions if you're lost or confused. This will help you stay ahead of the game and would ensure overall success in the course.
