    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor McGregor knows the information, but in class he gets incredibly off topic and rushes through problems, so he makes so many mistakes it's difficult to keep up with him.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight was the huge curve he had to put on the class! Took my C- to a C+

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the work and do the practice problems on Sakai to prepare for exams

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course for many students, so this part may not apply, but if it is not necessary I would not recommend this course. It was a very rigorous, fast-paced course that started out slow, but sped up very very quickly by week 2.

    Course highlights:

    I honestly struggled a great deal in this course, but I learned about significant figures as well as Lewis structures and the different types of 3D molecules.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend buckling down with this course from the very beginning. Don't take the material lightly, and learn as you go, don't try to cram the night before. There are SI sessions available to students and I highly recommend going to them. I didn't go but my friend did and she did a whole letter grade better than me on the final because of them. But try to go to most of them, not just one or two.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Many students need to take this course as a general education requirement. Professor Yekta is a kind, caring professor who does the best she can to teach students general chemistry. Her classes are informative and she is flexible with office hours.

    Course highlights:

    This course highlights general chemistry topics such as VSEPR theory and thermodynamics. I learned how to draw Lewis structures, write electron configuration, and determine heat enthalpy to name a few. This course is good because while the topics are somewhat simple and easy to understand, they are necessary to moving on to a higher chemistry class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise students considering this course to make sure they want to dedicate enough time to it. While it's not necessarily a difficult course, students do need to set time aside each day or every other day in order to keep up with the work and make sure they understand the content. Go to office hours if you don't understand anything; otherwise, the tests will be much more difficult than they need to be.
