Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Mr. Kilkuskie was an awesome professor who truly took the time to make sure you understood everything as you progressed through the class. The only way a person can fail his class is if they are struggling extremely and do not seek out any of his options for help. Only one negative thing to be said is that he has a monotone voice, it lulls a lot of people to near-sleep, no matter their interest level in the topic being discussed. I learned that Chai tea helps for me, perhaps other people just have to experiment with various techniques to keep themselves awake during lecture time. During lab time, though his voice remained the same level of monotone quality, did not cause as much difficulty with challenging my consciousness, and I believe this was in part due to the movement necessary to complete the lab steps.
I learned about thermodynamics and a quick introduction into organic chemistry. The final lab of the course (involving organic chemistry) allowed all of the students to make nylon within the lab setting. Once we completed the lab, the nylon was not harmful to us or anyone around us, and therefore our professor had determined that we could take it home if we so desired. With my nerdy self, I still have it in my apartment.

Advice for students:
You need to learn if his monotone voice affects you and how to best surpass this difficulty. In addition, you do want to buy the hardcover option for the book, and I recommend doing the end of the chapter questions the day of the last lecture and then again prior to the quiz/exam.
