    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class requires that you do ALOT of homework in order to understand the curriculum and you have to understand the curriculum to pass the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about the periodic table and how elements interact with each other. I didn't expect to learn as much as I did in this course. From molar mass to molarity of solutions to valence electrons; there is a lot to know about chemistry!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have an open schedule while taking this class. It requires a lot of your time.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Olbu does a good job of going through the lectures at a reasonable pace, and he also does a good job explaining the material.

    Course highlights:

    Well the course isn't over yet, and I haven't learned anything new because I have seen most of the material before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you're ready to work hard.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    For those looking to become chemistry, biochemistry, or other hard science related majors, including pre-med, this class is essential. However, if chemistry isn't your strong suit and you only need a general education science, I very strongly would recommend you take a different class. It is extremely vigorous course work with difficult tests and a very quick pace.

    Course highlights:

    This course introduces you to the essential building blocks for every other chemistry based class in the school with the exception of just a few. It teaches you pretty much everything you need to know to do basic college chemistry and therefore to continue on in the field.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do your homework before class so you now how to do the work on the quizzes. Workshops are definitely important to attend, as that's where you'll be able to get more personalized instruction and help with the concepts you don't understand. And don't be deterred by low grades, especially on the first test. Low grades are normal, and as long as you study and do the labs and homework, you can still pass the class.
