    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is able to give multiple approaches to the types of concepts and problems to accommodate to each student. He is always available during his office hours and shows a genuine concern for each of his students, and is always pushing his students to pursue excellence in academia.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite sections to learn about would have to be the ideal gas laws and molecular geometry. I liked learning and seeing the applications of the gas laws, and the professor applied the concepts to everyday appliances such as airbags and party balloons. I enjoyed learning about molecular structure and geometry because of how the structure of each ion and molecule determined it's characteristic properties, and how bond angles are affected by lone electron pairs and bond strength. While learning about molecular structure, the concepts used everything we had been learning since the beginning of the semester, and it was really interesting seeing all of the chapters coexist.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend reading the textbook. The lectures are more of a review and do not go as in depth as the textbook does. My advice is that you read what is going to be on the lecture before class, so that during the lecture you can ask questions and reinforce the topics. Also, the practice problems in the textbook are really helpful, and most of the questions in the textbook are going to be similar to the exam questions.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Battiste is not very concerned with helping his students succeed. He reads from the slides and does not expand on what is being read. His tests don't reflect the homework which is a major pain. You are pretty much teaching yourself.

    Course highlights:

    There were no highlights of this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have to take Dr. Battiste for this course please make sure you stay on top of everything and get tutoring when needed. His offers hours are ALWAYS crowded with students so if you need to meet with him I suggest that you get to his office early or set up an appointment with him.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this class unless you come into college motivated to learn and motivated to do it by yourself. The teacher mainly reads off of powerpoint slides and does not go into detail about any of the concepts. Definitely come into this class motivated to learn by yourself!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about elements and different structures. I also learned how to study on my own and teach myself new concepts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take someone else if possible, but you definitely need to read the book and try to take notes even though the teacher may put you to sleep some days.
