This class was tough.
I do recommend this course if you're going into a chemistry major. Sometimes you don't have a choice though. I was required to take this course for my major although I am not majoring in chemistry. You learn a lot of things in this course. Some useful, but some not so useful. One irrelevant thing that really stuck with me was the segment on sig figs. My professor would always give me instructions on how many sig figs he wanted us to write our answer in. I don't know if this sig fig is a thing I will be using in the medical field, but I for sure knew it was something I need to use in his class. Overall I envied chemistry, but I think if a had a different professor, well then it would be a different story.
The part I enjoyed the most about the class were the labs. This was the highlight to this course because it was hands on and not just sitting listening to someone speak. There are so many chemicals out there that if we interacted with it could lead to serious consequences, but then you also have the ones that do good for us.

Advice for students:
I would advice you to not take it with the professor Christopher Morong.. He is not a very good professor. He does not teach you, he reads off his slides. Technically I could skip class everyday and I would still know what people had learned that day just by reading the lectures on my own.YouTube taught me more than him.
