    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a class that you must put serious studying into if you wish to get a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about chemistry, which is interesting but can be difficult to understand. Once you understand it, it is not as scary as it might seem as first.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Create a study group, and just ignore a lesson because it is hard. This class builds on previous concepts a lot.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a requirement for most science majors. I find it easier than 1035, but the difficulty curve between Durrill's lectures and his tests are steep. He's a great guy, but you'll need to do a lot of studying outside of his lectures.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about acid-base interactions and we expanded on concepts from 1035

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Really go over and practice all of the connect assignments and recitation quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Some say that this professor is too mundane to listen to, but as long as you are able to do some work at home and work on understanding the material on your own you should be fine.

    Course highlights:

    I just learned a more thorough understanding of chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do the homework and actually understand what is going on during it. Pay attention in class, write down all the important concepts and review your notes frequently.
