    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Pre-Med!!! The course prepares you adequately. Plus, Thomas Bertolini is a pretty cool guy. During one class, we got to freeze things in nitrogen liquid and then smash them :D We even got to dip a hundred dollar bill in alcohol and then set it on fire! lol, I guess what I am trying to say is that although the class is somewhat hard in material, it is also fun. P.S. I got an A in the class so that must say a lot.

    Course highlights:

    Learnt about basic atomic principles, and how to draw Lewis structures e.t.c. It basically is an introduction to inorganic chemistry. We learnt about Avogadro's number, the PV = nRT Ideal gas equations and how to apply them.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your game all the time! Read the textbook as well to fill in the blanks from lecture. Attempt the challenge problems at the back of the textbook and try to do the old tests that Bertolini provides. Most importantly, skip class and you wont pass. :)

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a wonderful course offered by the university. However, the workload is extremely heavy with the lab section and midterms. You will do reports every week that are barely worth any points, but you'll learn more than you can imagine. It's very important to have a grouo of people that you can study with because the course is very fast pace. Go to SI sessions!

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Prezhdo is funny and really cares about his students. He tries to relate the material to more common experiences to promote a better understanding in his students. I learned how to multitask, present myself in secientific lab videos, and to teach the class about an experiment's lab safety. If you've taken general chemistry, much of the material is review, but on a much deeper scale.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not get discouraged. The curve is generally nice. If you are struggling, look up videos, ask friends, or go to office hours.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you're any science major, you have no choice but to take it, try to make it as easy on yourself as possible by not taking too many other diffficult courses!

    Course highlights:

    Honestly didn't learn anything super important, but taking it as a freshman teaches you how to study for exams and overall take college courses that are much different than high school.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Lab is super important so take it seriously! Utilizes your TAs' office hours, as well as the professors! Utilize all your resources (SI, etc). Do as many practice problems as youcan get your hands on! That's the only and best way to learn this material, as tests are usually problem based instead of conceptual.
