    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is required for a large portion of the students at this school because there are a lot of science and engineering majors. When taking this class, make sure you devote enough study time. I would recommend like 20 hours a week.

    Course highlights:

    The lab section of this course was so fun! I loved being able to mix chemicals and learn about all of the various things that go into completing a well thought out experiment and report.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study study study. This is a challenging course. You need to have a solid understanding of the concepts going in. If you can afford a tutor, I would get one.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is almost always a prerequisite course, I don't know any one that would take this by choice. It is now of those classes you have to try to just pass. Its a very big lecture of about 300 people plus a lab and discussion section.

    Course highlights:

    It wasn't really a fun class, but you build on the material from Chem 100 and if you continue to Chem 201 you want to make sure you understand the basics really well- Naming ions, charges etc. You will continue to use this information

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend taking notes on all the lectures, and then going over what you don't understand in the textbook. However the textbook is not extremely helpful. Go to the discussion groups and ask lots of questions. The best way to study is doing the practice tests and the worksheets they give you in discussion class over and over again. Try to do well on the online quizzes and homework-however the material on them doesn't really help with studying for tests. I went to A+ review which helped a lot, but still did a lot of studying on my own.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The way Professor Smith teaches is very organized. She introduces the concept and then does several practice problems with it. The tests are fair and quizzes are helpful.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would probably have to be the experiments. They connect well with what we learn in class. We learned about spectrophotometry and light.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's not necessary to go to class, but it's definitely beneficial if you do. It's much clearer that way. Also, study past tests and quiz yourself on concepts.
