    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor gives you many opportunities to get a good grade in the class by providing extra credit to students because he understands the difficulty of the class. He is a great resource to utilize if you are lost in the class or need help in a specific area. Also. the SIP leaders are great in helping you understand the material, providing practice and clarification, and preparing you for class exams and the final.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite thing in this course so far is Stoichiometry/balancing equations. I enjoy it so much because it is like doing math with a purpose. In chemistry, balancing an equation is important to getting your desired results. This concept, for me, was not difficult to learn or hard to master. It had a set way and required minimal thinking once you got it. It was pretty much easy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You can't be successful in this class if you just study for the test and then delete information from your brain after. But like i said, their are resources and tools offered to student who take this course such as free tutoring, SIP, and your instructor. You also benefit from pre-reading the chapter and completing the mastering Chemistry assignments ahead of time.

    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.
