    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    To be frank, Dr Ensign is what sells this course. Without him, it's very possible I would have had real trouble with the material.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Ensign is the reason the course is as good as it is. Plain and simple. He's a great teacher, but the true value lies in the resources he provides. When used correctly and diligently, the course (which requires you to learn fairly complex material) effectively becomes Chemistry for Dummies. He gives practice tests (including practice finals), practice questions with tutorials on how to solve them, recorded lectures, etc. I can't make it clear enough that these resources (ESPECIALLY the practice tests) are beyond valuable. If I had taken this course with a different professor who didn't offer these resources, I'd probably be ripping THAT class apart right now. But as it stands, I actually learned things and it wasn't brutally difficult. The course is great if you like Chemistry and fine if you just need to take the class to get by. It isn't easy, but it's certainly manageable.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I fell behind on the lectures for pretty much the entirety of the semester. Never to a massive degree, but it was a continual source of anxiety and I wasn't loving it. So if you can, take the class later so it isn't brutally difficult to rip yourself out of bed and get to class on time. Also, if it is at ALL possible, take the class from Dr. Scott Ensign. If you do get the class with him, and I legitimately can't stress this enough, look at the practice tests. They are and EXTREMELY good indicator of what the tests (the things composing the majority of your grade) will be like. Make friends in the class too. They'll help you fill in any gaps.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course, taught by this teacher, makes sense. He takes time to prepare material to really help us as students learn, practice, and master a concept. I learned more chemistry in this course than I have in any other course.

    Course highlights:

    Although the practice problems took time, they were probably my favorite part of the class. It gave me the opportunity to use what he just taught me in class, which deepened my understanding of each concept.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in this class, you need to go to class first off, that is the key. Secondly, you need to take the time to do the practice problems that he provides. He also allows you to take each quiz 5 times. Take them 5 times. This will help you immensely as you prepare for the exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor is amazing, he not only knows what he is teaching, but he genuinely cares about his students. He has spent hours producing material to learn with, to practice with, and to perfect your chemical understanding. I really learned the material from this teacher, he made a hard class easier.

    Course highlights:

    I loved all of the practice problems. there is not a better way to learn than by actually doing. He would teach the material in class, and then I would go home and apply what I learned. This is how I learned the material the best, and I was successful!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the material, and go to class. If you miss anything, take time to watch his pre-recorded lectures and really create an understanding of the chemistry. Also, create a study group, and teach each other, you learn a lot when teaching.
