This class was tough.
I would not recommend this course because, from my experience, Dr. Fairly does not care about the students learning on a personal level. She read directly from her PowerPoint slides, but did not explain or elaborate on any of the points. In a lab one day, my partner and I did not understand what her directions were saying. When asked her about them, she told us to re-read the directions. We had to ask another group what she meant in order to do our experiment.
For me, the highlight of this course was the lab. I enjoy hands-on learning, so I enjoyed being able to do the experiments with just my partner and I. I learned the proper procedures for conducting certain experiments.

Advice for students:
My advice to students considering taking this course would be to study diligently. Dr. Fairly does not give easy exams, so be sure to study adequately for all quizzes and exams.
