    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Recommend this course, but the professor isn't the best teacher, lecture wise. If you are good at teaching yourself, then he is the right professor for you, but if you are not, then I would recommend trying to get into one of the other time slots.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot through this course. One of the best things was learning how to teach myself since you can't always count on getting a great teacher.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are committed to going to class everyday and to doing your homework. Also the tests are tough so you have to be able to put many hours in before the test that are dedicated to only studying chemistry.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class only if you take it with Mattingly. All of the other professors I've hard are hard. If you need a Science credit take Biology because it is a lot easier.

    Course highlights:

    When she did experiments in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get help when you need it and study right away.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking CHEM 121, but I would not recommend taking Professor Harmon Abrahamson.

    Course highlights:

    The class participation was fun. We got to work on examples in class with partners around us. It was basically high school chemistry, but kicked up a notch. We learned about the same concepts as in high school, but we went more in depth.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are not understanding something, go to tutoring. Ask the professor. They are always willing to help if you ask for the help. Also, form study groups. Do homework together. Study together. Pass/fail together.
