    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Monica Illies actually goes in depth with the chapters. She makes the topics easy to understand and comprehend and she over prepares you for the exams.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was when Mrs. Illies used models instead of diagrams when teaching a subject. I learned how various compounds are arranged and how that arrangement can make one compound different from another.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook because chances are you might learn something that the teacher did not touch on. Always do the homework because they are practice questions. Lastly, always go to class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think this professor is able to convey chemistry in the most simplistic way while still understand the material. Very hands on and he keeps your attention with questions he asked of the students to answer.

    Course highlights:

    I learned basic states of matter,stoichiometry ,how chemical reactions effects atomic and molecular structures.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never miss the class because you might miss out on test questions or very important material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Ilies was a terrific lecturer! She made a tough class interesting and fun, and using clickers throughout the lecture made it a more interactive environment. The responses allowed her to see which areas the class in general struggled with, which allowed her to then direct her attention to that area. The problems also resembled those on exams, which were very helpful to look back and answer on when studying for finals.

    Course highlights:

    We learned tons, covering most of the general information needed for other chemistry courses, such as Lewis Dot Structures, bonding, polar vs. nonpolar covalent bonds, conductivity, the electron and molecular geometry of molecules, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, you must do the homework and practice problems, and you must study a lot. Chemistry is not the easiest subject, and in college, your lecturers only guide you. It is your responsibility to use the text and learn the material thoroughly. What usually helps me study is to outline the text, highlighting important formulas and concepts. Make sure you know how to do practice problems well, because exam questions are usually similar.
