    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is not a complicated course, but can be pretty difficult to understand the way professor Driscoll teaches. I prefer a setting with a bit more of class engagement and independent work to verify that we actually understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    So far we've covered ionic and covalent bonding, as well as valence electrons. This course has been very informative and the Chemistry Success Center does a wonderful job with clarity and practice to help understand the material and storing it in your mind so you can always use it when needed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Visit the Chemistry Success Center as regular as needed. Like all courses, revisit your notes right after the class ends and before heading to bed to keep them fresh in your mind. Professor office hours are specifically for us students, use them all up if needed, never be afraid to ask something or let someone know when you're lost.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would reccomend this course for anyone going into the medical field. It is a great recap of chemistry learned in sophomore year of high school and a great introduction organic chemistry,

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the class discussion worksheets and the OWLs that were due every week. Both worksheets and the OWLs contributed to my understanding in the class. They both were helpful to help me understand the math behind chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend every lecture, do the class discussion worksheets and OWLs, and go to office hours.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very rudimentary chemistry, most of which I covered in my high school chemistry class. I ended up being the one to tutor many of my classmates because our professor really didn't know how to explain things very well.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't really gain much more chemistry knowledge by taking this course, but I did start to gain the knowledge about taking college course and how to prepare for test.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the homework and even the additional practice. Although it may be more work to be doing things that aren't necessarily assigned, in the end it will help. Also make sure that you are completing the online homework as you are completing the chapter in class that it corresponds to. It became more challenging trying to rush to finish the homework the day before the test instead of reviewing some topics you need help with.
