    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to those who have a love for the sciences, particularly chemistry. My professor wasn't a super easy professor but he wasn't super hard either. If I could have him for all of my chemistry classes, I would.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to learn what I was taught in high school but in more depth and in a more understanding way.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give is always attend class but if you're not able to, make sure you have at least one friend who can help you. You always need to study for tests, don't think you will be able to wing it like you would in high school. Last thing would be to do your best no matter what.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Hindo is a great professor. He explains things so well. He gives study guides and homework, which really make the material easier to learn. He also gives tons of chances for extra credit. He makes chemistry pretty fun and as long as you try and study you will make a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    I would say the highlight of this course, was that I actually understood the material. There were many long homework assignments, but they helped a whole lot. In this class I learned a lot about chemical equations, chemical formulas, and atomic structure. I learned so much about how to figure out the atomic structure and how to set up equations. Before this class I had no idea how to do any of this, so coming out of this class and understanding how to do it was a really big help for my next Chemistry class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For one, make sure you take notes and really try on the homework. It explains everything you are learning in class and most of the problems are similar to the ones on the test. Also, make sure you work out and understand all of the study guide practice problems. Some of them are the exact ones on the test or the numbers are slightly different.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it definitely is helpful in the long run when you take higher level science classes. It teaches you the basics and introduces you to helpful lab techniques and teaches you how to write a lab report. I also recommend taking it with this professor because while the material is difficult, he does make an effort to help understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I gained knowledge in important lab techniques and writing skills for lab. I learned things such as how to titrate a solution and which types of glassware are more accurate and precise in taking measurements. I also learned how big of a role stoichiometry plays in chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in class, you definitely to study on a frequent basis. Whether it's doing practice problems or memorizing periodic trends, studying frequently is a must. I would also suggest using the homework for the class as a guide so you can pinpoint what concepts you need to spend more time on.
