    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    A lot of work, hard to teach yourself chemistry if you do not have a good foundation in the subject

    Course highlights:

    basic chemistry equations and terms

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    make sure you have a good foundation

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is such a wonderful teacher, his tests can be difficult if you don't study. However, I am a person who has a lot of trouble with anything math and science, but Percell was willing to explain anything that I had trouble with and he uses a lot of metaphors that helps you understand the material that he's teaching.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was when I finally understood chemistry for the first time in my life. I am terrible at math and I am terrible at science so when Percell was teaching electron configurations and Lewis structures I felt really proud of myself in that moment, like a light just switched on for me and he got through to me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to not give up. Especially if you are a student who has trouble in science like I do. I did terrible on my first test and I was scared that I would continue to get those kind of grades in the class, but Percell assured me that I was not in jeopardy of failing the class, partially because he substitutes one of bad tests with our final test grade and also because we have so many chances to bring the grade up. Just continue to believe that you can do it and put in the work.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for those who are seeking an associates degree or plan on transferring to a four year university. For associate degree seeking students your options are two levels of biology, chemistry, or physics. DO NOT take general physics at CFCC, biology is not terribly hard, but the chemistry courses are by far more direct as to what is expected of you and what you will or will not be tested on.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot in this course and felt well prepared for the second half (General Chemistry II). Additionally, most of the chem I teachers teach II as well, being able to have that kind of stability and consistency is quite nice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend keeping up with the material as you go so that studying before a test is not overloaded with information. Get to the point at which you feel ready for the test, take the practice exam exactly how you would the real, then study some more based off of what you missed. The real exams are VERY similar to the practice ones so you will not be blindsided by any arbitrary information if you take the practice.
