    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I personally enjoyed this course because I found all of the numbers and equations to be a lot of fun! Most individuals have very negative opinions about "hard" classes like these, but it is such a great opportunity to understand creation on an amazing level!

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed working with the periodic table as well as the professor. I learned mole-to-mole ratios, electron configurations, energy and heat equations, and much more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put in the work and you will get the results! You can achieve what you want.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Because the way he teaches is by example and asking if everyone understands.

    Course highlights:

    How to love chemistry even if you don't like what your doing. I loved the molecular geometry ????

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up, study and don't get to overwhelmed.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While Dr. Tanizaki does well at doing his very best to explain chemistry, different aspects of the course don't completely line up which makes it confusing when it comes to test time. His online lecture Powerpoints are not always the same as the Powerpoints he displays in class so that can make relearning material hard if a student tries to go back and learn from the Powerpoints. Also, what is taught in the homework doesn't always line up with what he is teaching either. The homework can tell you one way to answer a problem, but Dr. Tanizaki will expect a different answer on the test. My recommendation would be to go to class everyday and take thorough notes, as the tests are based off of what he teaches in class. I would also recommend thoroughly reading the book. When there is confusion on a certain topic, DO NOT go to the homework to clear the confusion, rather, go to the book and it will have a similar way of teaching the subject to how Dr. Tanizaki teaches it, just more clear cut.

    Course highlights:

    Personally, I am a hands on type of person, so the lab was definitely the highlight of this course. It really helps you to see what you're learning in class play out in a real experiment and it helps to see certain concepts more clearly.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Chemistry is a class that seems easy to learn and when learning the concepts in class, you think you can handle it well and you trick yourself into not studying as hard because the material you learned in class was not hard to understand. This is a lie! What you learn in class is only basic understandings of chemistry and the tests will take that basic understanding and make you expand on it and connect the dots between the different topics and be able to work through a multiple step problem. I would advise not taking this class lightly and not putting it on the back burner for another difficult class. Chemistry will sneak up on you if you don't study hard. For studying, I would recommend taking thorough notes in class and going back over those and redoing the lecture examples while also doing the problems provided in the book. If you can ace all those, you will do fine on the test.
