    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    He's always available to answer any questions and his tests are just like the homework. I guarantee you will be successful, in his class if you put in the effort for this class.

    Course highlights:

    His exams are very direct and the labs are easy. The department final was a bit hard (subjective opinion). He expects you to read a lot on your own but is always available if you have any questions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Great experience! He encouraged using computers and phones in class. The textbook was free (OpenStack). His exams were WORD FOR WORD & NUMBER FOR NUMBER directly from the homework. He has a great personality and really knows the material

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed the class! The labs are fun and interesting the lectures are as well. It's basically like a math class.

    Course highlights:

    The labs put everything into perspective. If what you learned in lecture wasn't enough to sink the material in, the labs will definitely help you with that.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    pay attention, study study study, and make sure you have a calculator on hand all the time because doing the math by hand sucks!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There was no real structure to this class and there was a severe language barrier. I'm not talking about a thick accent either. The professor simply had a poor grasp on the English language. So far to the point where it left students unsure as to whether or not homework was requisite or extra credit (it ended up being extra credit). To clarify, the professor was very nice and truly cared about educating us the best as she could. But, at the end of the day, we learned nothing from lecture and the labs were almost entirely fend-for-yourself. I made an A by sitting with my textbook upwards of 15 to 20 hours per week and then teaching the class in group study.

    Course highlights:

    This was the first time I ever developed any real idea of what chemistry was and the bare basics of how reactions worked. I really enjoyed the deductive reasoning that went into figuring out the products of precipitate reactions. More than anything, I learned a lot about how I learn and how best to teach others a way of thought that allows them to teach themselves complicated subjects like Chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do end up taking this course with this specific professor you absolutely CANNOT slack off. When going through your textbook, try your best to ask yourself how or why something works and how it ties into everything else you have learned from previous chapters. This will take you much further than the cramming/memorization route- because good luck memorizing 500 pages of text. Lastly, if you do not have a firm grasp of Algebra ( the concepts behind HOW/WHY a proportion works the way it does, isolating a single variable in something like PV=nRT), I would recommend either taking Algebra I with Chem 1411 or waiting until you take Algebra I.
