    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very difficult for me. My professor seemed to assume the class had a lot of background knowledge that I certainly did not have. Additionally, I felt he had a hard time relating to undergraduate students that generally had little knowledge in a subject that was easy and intuitive to him. So, this made for a frustrating experience. However, about halfway through the semester I started attending Dr. Ensign's lectures to supplement my learning and my experience became so much better.

    Course highlights:

    There were very few highlights in my course, but there were many highlights in Dr. Ensign's lectures. Dr. Ensign's lectures were generally fast-paced but packed with 'aha' moments. Additionally, he took concepts he was teaching us and showed us the applications, such as explaining the science behind why it feels warmer when it snows in winter versus when it does not. Most importantly, since the both professors tested on the same subject matter, I was able to pass my class through attending Dr. Ensign's lectures.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are taking Chem 1210, take from Dr. Ensign if at all possible. He is an excellent teacher with many online resources available to his students. His class is challenging and requires time with practice problems, but it is very effective. Even if you do not take his class, I highly recommend looking at his online resources. They were the reason that I passed my class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class itself was very difficult. There was a lot of background knowledge expected that I did not have. Additionally, I felt that my professor had a hard time relating to undergraduates who did not have much background knowledge in a subject that was easy and intuitive to him. I actually felt very frustrated and discouraged through much of the course. However, I started attending a different professor's lectures lectures about halfway through the course. After I starting doing this, I performed significantly better in my own class.

    Course highlights:

    There were very few highlights from this actual course I was enrolled in. There were many highlights from attending Dr. Ensign's lectures. Dr. Ensign's lectures were generally pretty fast-paced, but they were packed with 'aha' moments. Some of the actual material tested on in both classes included atomic structures, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, chemical bonding, and behavior of gases.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are taking a chemistry class, take it from Dr. Ensign. He is an excellent teacher with many online resources available to his students. Even if you are not enrolled in his class, if you have Chemistry 1210 I highly recommend looking at Dr. Ensign's online resources. Chances are they will help greatly even if you have a different professor.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Farrelly teaches in such a way that the student not only learns from him, but also their peers and themselves as they stretch their minds. The homework sets, while very difficult, serve to expand the mind and widen the students range of problem solving techniques.

    Course highlights:

    We learned all about the basics of Chemistry, and many parts that seemed more advanced as well. The homework, while definitely the hardest thing we did as part of that class, definitely taught me a lot, which I really liked, and I felt really accomplished after finishing it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, and when you think you are done studying, study some more. Also, take advantage of the fact that you can take the quizzes as many times as you want, it will prepare you for the final.
