    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course 100%, it is one of the basic courses that is required but with this professor it is amazing. I really enjoyed it and was able to learn a lot from my semester taking it.

    Course highlights:

    We learned dimensional analysis, which is converting measurements to achievement the measurement that is desired. We also learned solubility rules which was learning which combination of chemicals will dissolve in water or create a solid. This course also taught a lot about the properties of the periodic table and you begin to understand why the table is organized the way that it is. For example we learned trends for electronegativity, atomic radii, and for electron affinity of specific elements.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a lot, don't think you know just because you understood it during the lecture. Practice really does make perfect, do practice problems (as many as possible). There are plenty on online and usually in the back of the book. Also make sure to take notes that you understand don't just write exactly what is on the board or in the powerpoint put things in your own words. That help so much because they are coming from yourself and it really helps when you are studying. You shouldn't print out the notes, just write your own and then use the given notes as a guide when you studying to compare to your own just make sure your understood correctly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you can choose your science I would not recommend chemistry it has the highest failure rate at our campus, it is a very difficult course.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned more about the periodic table, atomic structure, atomic bonding and their shape and angles. I learned more about stoichiojmety

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study really hard, and buy your textbook because you're going to need it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Ibrahim isn't the type of instructor that just wants to show you how to pass an exam. He actually teaches the theories of chemistry and why we need to learn it. Great instructor.

    Course highlights:

    It was my second time taking chem, and I thought I hated this class till I took it with Dr. Ibrahim. He made us understand why everything we learn in chem was necessary.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, and do the homework. So long as he sees that you are trying, he will help you.
