    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:

    You will learn a lot in this course, but it is very fast paced and easy to fall behind.

    Course highlights:

    Learned a lot of conceptual concepts and basics, like mole concepts, quantum, mole calculations, and enthalpy changes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Bert is a hard prof, but studying the ppts at least 2 days before the exams and going to office hours was very helpful. The textbook did not help me at all personally, but SI sessions were amazing!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a requirement for most science majors and therefore is a weed out class, so it can be very diffiicult and frustrating at times.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Prezhdo does a great job at explaining why equations and formulas and laws are the way that they are. I learned a lot about the reasoning behind different aspects of chemistry and this class was a good review of the basic chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Lab is really tough and very time-consuming for a small amount of points, but everyone is in the same boat so don't worry! Dr. Prezdho, while being good at going into detail in some parts, sometimes does not spend enough time on other, very important parts of the class.
