    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very difficult class and moves at a fast pace. The teacher was very helpful during office hours and the labs were always fun. Try to get a good lab partner on the first day that shows up to both the classes and the labs. Sit towards the front as sometimes it's hard to see the diagrams from far away. If you have questions, please go to her office hours or ask after class. She hates it when students show up late.

    Course highlights:

    I have a new found appreciation for Chemistry majors. The amount of studying, math, and memorization that is required is amazing. Believe it or not, this was my first Chemistry class and I learned so much. It really covers the entire book, minus one or two chapters. The study groups were also very helpful but the weekly quizzes were not taken seriously. The labs were my favorite part despite the standing for 5+ hours at a time.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the entire book, buy study guides, attend every study group, and definitely attend every lab. DO NOT MISS LABS! Ask plenty of questions and if you need additional help, attend office hours. Mrs. Petersen is incredibly helpful and will break it down in pieces for you if you're struggling. Do not ask her the exact same question someone else did unless you didn't understand the answer. Also, don't forget your iClicker. It's how she keeps attendance.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor provides students with very helpful lecture notes because he really wants students to succeed in the class. His lectures are easy to understand, and the tests are an accurate reflection of what we learned throughout the course.

    Course highlights:

    Much of the class, especially the beginning, is a review of high school chemistry. Near the end, we start to learn about the 3D structure of molecules and a little about unique properties of metals.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is not difficult to succeed if you read the lecture notes, stay away during class, and participate in recitations. Start doing the practice exams a week before exams, because those practice exams are very similar to what's going to be on the test.

    I learned many concepts that will be featured on the MCAT exam.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study as frequently as possible and get involved in group study.
