    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Don't get me wrong, Professor Rippe is extremely nice and willing to help you understand what she is teaching, but she does not prepare her students well for her exam, and doesn't give study guides, which makes it extremely difficult to study. By the end of the semester about half our class had dropped the course due to poor grades.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Rippe is very kind and helped my friend who was getting a D get his grade up to a C. She taught mole conversions very well, I didn't understand moles in high school chemistry, but she explains those very well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to spend a lot of time studying, I was a straight A student in high school, but got a C in this course. Also don't be afraid to ask questions! She is more than willing to help.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Randle is a very intelligent teacher. she can be tough on students but that is because she wants you to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of the course was the different chemistry labs that we got to do. We were also bale to do group projects which was also a fun experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be willing to put in the effort outside of class to get the grade. She also does not allow you to keep you past exams for studying.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for those who want to be independent in their understanding of Chemistry. Professor Blaha does not share direct answers but ask follow-up questions to help the student understand the topic question.

    Course highlights:

    The greatest, most permeable thing I've learned during this course, was that Ethanol gasoline is not an effective alternative to mainstream gasoline avenues.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I believe I've successfully passed the course but not following what the other students were doing. The other students were asking the teacher for answers yet, were not getting sufficient answers and thus, flunked the tests. I did well on the test because I bought a subscription to Chegg.com for homework help, utilized the chemistry help from Socratic.org, as well as did every single practice problem from the chapters that we were learning. Use Chegg.com to ask for help on the homework questions, Use Socratic.org to understand the concepts then, go through Professor Blaha's test example questions as well as, end of chapter questions, and complete them until each question is answered correctly. If you do this, you will get at least a B.
