This class was tough.
Professor Leopold is an extremely sweet person, always willing to help, in and outside of class. Quantum Mechanics is a hard subject to study, but Prof. Leopold's notes and exam review sheets really help get you through the course. The lectures can be a little hard to follow at times though.
The highlight of this course was definitely Prof. Leopold's enthusiasm for the subject and her willingness to help clear any doubts on the spot; she wants every student to succeed and makes sure we know we can approach her with any issues we have regarding the course. Grading is fair - and at the end of the semester, the class average is assigned a B - which is generous compared to other upper level Chemistry classes I've taken. Overall, this class is actually making understanding Quantum Chemistry seem possible, and I'm certainly enjoying it.

Advice for students:
Lecture notes are generally posted on the course Moodle page. Go through those, the exam review sheet, and the sample exams to do well on the exams. Just keep up and you'll be fine :)
