    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As a pre-Med student I think this course is an essential towards laying down the foundations for better understanding of higher level chemistry courses ; such as, organic chemistry. Even though high school students might take some higher level chemistry courses in high school, it is important to start off Freshman year of college with a refresher on common chemistry topics. General chemistry is a great course because you are learning the basics which will be needed later on down the road a pre-medical career path. This course is also essential because it sets the scenery of what a science major educational career path looks like and it lets students reflect if they truly want to be part of a pre-Med program.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were taking basic scientific concepts and learning how to apply them to real world problems, and also understanding the way how these basic concepts will apply to upper level courses later on. I learned the importance of taking time and putting as much effort into my coursework. The most important lesson that I learned was that as a college freshman I needed to make a big transition away from my high-school studying skills, and understanding that being successful in college is all about understanding the importance of studying a little each night and taking advantage of all the free-time. Success in college is not about being "smart", its all about putting as much work in as possible and knowing that if you want something in life you must work for it each and everyday.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Success in this class is all about taking very efficient lecture notes and reviewing them each night after lecture. It is also helpful to work the problems out over and over again in order to understand how to apply each concept, but most importantly students need to complete the textbook readings and correlate the conceptual themes of the course with mathematical problem solving skills.
