This class was tough.
I would definitely recommend this class because it teaches how the world around is formed and what properties of matter make up the entire universe. Of course, the class may be challenging for some, but it is definitely not impossible to pass, especially if one takes the course with Dr. T. Greenbowe.
The highlights of this course were the students, the professor, and the material. At the University of Oregon, courses such as chemistry could get a bit competitive, especially when there are over 400 students in one classroom competing for that A grade. Every class meet was a didactic one, especially since Professor Greenbowe put so much effort and enthusiasm into his lectures. Although some of the material might have been a bit confusing at times, Professor Greenbowe would set up mini experiments in front of the entire class to help us better understand the topic of the day. Something I will always cherish after having taken this course was the professor's availability and professionalism.

Advice for students:
The BEST advice for passing this class is study, study, study. I cannot stress how important it is to dedicate so many hours to just this course. Reading the material before class meets always helps a student prepare for what they will be learning. Getting together with other students to study outside of class is also a great piece of advice; this includes taking advantage of class after hours and tutoring hours.
