    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very demanding and challenging, especially to a person who struggles with chemistry. However, it made me cognizant of the level at which an accredited university expects you to perform, and overall set the tone and expectations for other courses and for myself. It allowed me to come to know my own level of self-discipline and commitment, and the level of effort that I need to exert in studying for college classes. I set goals for myself and, in the end, did achieve my goal of receiving at least a B- in the course.

    Course highlights:

    There are many, many broad topics that quickly become specific in this course. I am not very interested in chemistry, but the topics we discussed were interesting and extremely relevant to my major. I learned a lot about molecular shapes and configurations, quantum theory system, and acid an base properties. I also learned about naming ions or molecules, polyatomic ions, and drawing lewis structures. This class was very beneficial to me even though it was extremely hard. It taught me how to study and how to discipline myself to study with all of the other things I had going on in order to do well. It also taught me how to balance my time wisely for not only this course but for others as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to do well, I suggest reading the textbook before lectures to gain simple, working knowledge of the subject beforehand. It was also beneficial for me to not write down every little thing, but the things the professor emphasized. You have to learn to actively listen, write quickly, and comprehend all at the same time. The practice problems in the textbook were a good way for me to actually practice the material, and I would suggest that every student do each problem a couple of times. Rewriting my notes was another study strategy that I used often. It helps to review past lectures and overall the repetition leads to stronger comprehension and memory of the material.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The reason why I do not feel strongly about this course is because Dr. Rabah's assignments do not match what is being testing on, and the way that the professor asks the questions in class, to practice are different from the exam material. She also goes at a strange pace, because some days she is fast in explaining what the lecture is about, and others take two lectures to explain the amount of one lecture.

    Course highlights:

    What I learnt from this course is that what is taught in AP Chemistry is not the same as taught in college chemistry. I had to relearn the major standings in chem, and the biggest thing that I learnt in her class was to understand and properly diagram the molecular orbital theory.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, but make them your own. Just because she has something in the outline, don't forget to pay solid attention to what she says, because that has more information than just following the outline to the tee. Take time to also read the textbook in your own time, especially if she is taking her time in explaining something, or if it doesn't make sense to you.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Petrovich is very kind and helpful during the lectures. All notes are placed online at the beginning of the semester so that you may look over them and/or print them out before class. Students are expected to know many basic chemistry concepts that were presented in high school chemistry classes.

    Course highlights:

    Because this class was taken in my very first semester at a University, I learned valuable lessons about studying and managing my time. Particularly for this course, I learned to apply chemistry concepts to answer many different questions about the chemical world. Dr. Petrovich includes many helpful demonstrations throughout the semester that make the class more enjoyable and prove she is there to help students learn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course does require lots of studying outside of class. I recommend reading the sections in the textbook that correspond with a lecture before attending that lecture. Also print out the notes for each class so you can spend more time listening to her explanations and writing what she says rather than writing down the notes on the powerpoint. The many homework assignments on webassign allow you to boost your grade, so do them and do them well!
