    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was extremely insightful and helpful for a starting college student. I liked how the professor was willing to work with all of the students and would take the time to explain in detail each topic. I personally think the course was challenging at times but was good for getting me to think deeper and study more over the material.

    Course highlights:

    What I liked the most out of the course was getting to see how what I was learning in class applied to the chemistry labs. The labs let me visualize what I was learning in class and interact with the course more. I learned how titrations can affect different chemicals in different ways, and how important significant figures are when doing calculations.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen well to lectures and try your best not to miss any lectures. Don't be afraid to talk to the professor and TA's, they are willing to answer any and all questions you have over the material. Also, creating small study groups can be helpful for certain topics. I would say having two to three people in the groups is best and keep in mind that groups are not always the best way to study certain topics.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Malina is a great professor. He is always willing to help students during his office hours. He does give out a lot of examples during the lecture.

    Course highlights:

    It is important to take a good note as some of the concepts from what he lectured will be on the exam. It is vital to attend every class as well.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study consistently. Cramming would not work. Do not try to memorize. Practice a lot of questions in the book. Know how and why certain things happen, not just what is the right answer.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The goal of freshmen college courses is not only to teach you the subject, it is also to teach you how to learn. Taking General Chemistry at first seemed pointless to me until I realized this. Stains is a great professor who makes the subject exciting and fun, and although I probably won't use my chemistry knowledge in my career, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Course highlights:

    As a freshmen in college, you will be surprised at how different it is from high-school! My highlight for this course is my change in study habits. In high-school I didn't need to study much, and for my first Chemistry Exam I did not expect a 64%! This course changed my study mentality and I improved my scores for the next tests. On the second exam I got an 85%, and on the third I got a 98%! This improvement is the highlight of this course for me. I learned how to study hard and not to overestimate myself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard from the start, don't underestimate the course like I did! If you do get a bad grade on your first exam like me, just know that it's not over. You can definitely get an A in the class by working hard at the next exams and the final!
