    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Findlater is a great professor. She always makes sure that everyone in the class understands the material even if you are in a 400 person class like I was. She offers plentiful office hours where you can go to ask her questions about homework or just concepts that you have not grasped. She does assign homework after every class but it is not too much and it helps get a better understanding of the material. Dr. FIndlater's tests were not hard and she gives an ample amount of reviews and pre-test before the real test. Finished the class with an A. Overall a fantastic professor and class

    Course highlights:

    Dr. FIndlater starts thecourse teaching sinple things like significant figures. The course progresses into things like light spectra, compounds, solubility, converting from moles to grams and back, and much more. She is not a fast paced professor.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try and sit in the front of the class because she does not speak with a microphone so you may have a problem hearing her. Homework is not a big portion of her grades but if you do it, it will greatly increase your grade if you do well on it. She also offers extra credit quizes each week that i would highly recommend doing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I liked this course, professor Gonzalez was very in depth with her explaination of this chemistry course and I learned so much more than I ever have in any chemistry class.

    Course highlights:

    She made 3D models and gave good explanations of what was going on in the molecules. This was very helpful in how I am used to learning.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take all the notes you can and stay on track with assignments and all work that she gives out.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chem 1301 with Jeremy Mason is a good course and you will learn quite a bit from it. Mason's lectures are very entertaining and filled with a lot of information. The homework he assigned was pretty easy, even though sometimes really long. The part to watch out for is the exams. The exams were extremely hard and easily messed up my A in the class. Mason does, however, offer extra credit after each exam and it really helps. Between the A's in Homework, participation, and extra credit I was able to come out with a B.

    Course highlights:

    This course was really good at teaching basic chemistry. I learned basic chemical formulas, the periodic table, and how to write chemical reactions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this class, be prepared for the exams. Study more than what's on the study guide, or else you won't pass. When taking the exams read questions very carefully, because they are worded confusingly and are difficult to understand. Also be prepared to do a lot of math. Most of the math isn't too hard, but you aren't allowed to use a calculator, so brush up on basic math skills like multiplication and long division.
