    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you absolutely must take a chemistry course at this school, I would recommend this one. This is only because test are open book and late homework is accepted. Professor Nazarenko is probably the most lenient out of all chemistry professors at Buffalo State. This is needed because from what I've been told, all of the Chemistry Professors at this college are terrible at teaching the coursework. They know the material well, but they can't "dumb it down" for students who aren't experts in chemistry. Also, most of them have very strong accents and move through the coursework very quickly, so it is very hard to learn in class. For me going to class is mainly for me to see what is being taught and researching that topic on my own so that I could have some understanding to it. Because of Nazarenko's open book test, I was able to get about a 77 in the class although I feel as though I barely learned anything. He also curves our grades so my 77 would considered a B which was a win for me. I wouldn't recommend coming to this school as a chemistry major but if you must, you should definitely take this course if would like to pass.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course would have to be the fact that all tests were open book and that all grades are curved. (A-85, B-75, C-65, D-55, etc)

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go show up to class to see what topics you're on. You will need to study a lot on your own or go to a tutoring center provided on campus. If you show up to class only once a week, no worries. He won't remember your face or name. About halfway through the semester you'll notice that only about 10 students attend class consecutively.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to students who are in the science/medical field. If you are not taking up such major, this course may not be interesting or maybe difficult for some.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the properties of an atom, all about the periodic table, chemical bonds and so forth.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My biggest piece of advice would be to always keep up with homework and really study because there are a lot of terms and equations you need to memorize for tests.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is difficult but THIS professor is amazing, to say the least! She will help you every step of the way. I have taken this Class with Durfee and it was a waste of time. He doesn't care if you need help.

    Course highlights:

    Basic chemistry, moles, chemical reactions, entropy, energy, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind or else you will never catch up!
