    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My reasoning behind recommending this class is on the content and the professor. Professor Beecroft is truly one of the best professors I have had the privilege of learning from. She is always energetic and enthusiastic every class. She is always engaging with the class in fun and interesting ways with demonstrations and labs to make the concepts of the lecture easy to understand and real world applicable. With her as the instructor the interesting subject of general chemistry becomes a great deal more interesting.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I struggled in the beginning, I was not familiar with chemistry due to the fact that I never took the course in high school. Professor Beecroft had sensed I was new to chemistry and was always checking up on me and my progress in the class. Which lead me to seek out tutoring and other outside help for this course because my professor inspired me to go the extra mile. What I learned in this course was the fascinating concepts of general chemistry from chemical make ups of everyday objects to molecular structures of alkane hydrocarbons.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to those taking this course in the future is to come to class prepared to learn and master a new concept through an interesting way. Also always pay attention to lecture, Professor Beecroft, as fun as she may be she is also there to teach. She is not there to waste anyone's time including that of yours and her own. She s a great professor. And as for the materials you'll need consists of a scientific calculator, general chemistry textbook and provide your own Scantrons for exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Awesome professor, recommend reading the textbook chapters before class!

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Martin has a different way of teaching, you should pay attention in class and plan on taking your own notes out of class. He is extremely funny and intelligent, although he can be a little on the awkward side.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    read the chapters in the book, do all the possible extra credit he assigns and make sure to pay attention in class, more than 3/4 of the class dropped out because of their failing grade during his class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is necessary to succeed and the material is fascinating. However, it is challenging especially for someone who struggles with this subject. I advice not to lack in your studying or the homework.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the labs, it was interesting to see how the different chemicals reacted with something as simple as water.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Lots of studying, and if you need outside help, don't be afraid to get it.
