    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    if you have to take it, you better study your ass off and meet with the teachers/ get help outside of the lecture. Class takes a lot of studying and practice especially because exams are very difficult and do ot reflect teacher's teaching style.

    Course highlights:

    The general elements of chemistry including stoichiometry, balancing equations, solving word problems, and a lot more. A lot of the tricky stuff comes from learning the orbital diagrams and 3D elements of chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    you really have to practice the problems every day in order to be prepared for exams. The exams are very math heavy and require full knowledge of subject because they tend to be very tricky. Go to the SI meetings, meet with professor, and study in groups.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend taking the summer course as it is only 6 weeks and is more teacher to student learning. The course as a whole was largely based on peer-to-peer learning which for myself and many others meant that we were on our own to learn and understand everything. Be prepared to spend copious hours in study groups or studying by yourself.

    Course highlights:

    I learned not only about chemistry, which is obvious, but the importance of prioritizing time. Lectures are very important for understanding key concepts in the class and don't be afraid to ask questions about the more complex topics such as quantum mechanics, atomic structures, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find people to help you study and understand everything. Make sure that how and what you're studying is effective by consistently training using various types of questioning and formats. Treat every concept with equal weight or value and never think that you fully understand a concept just because you may have seen it before.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for all STEM majors, but I highly recommend taking Harrison as a professor if you are able! I found his lectures to be extremely informative, and if anything is unclear to you, he is even more helpful if you go in to his office hours. He cares immensely for his students' success in his class and makes it fun and attainable! Every point counts in this course, so don't take the homeworks and labs for granted - effort is highly rewarded.

    Course highlights:

    This course is essentially high school chemistry, but way more in-depth. The labs were confusing if you didn't put your whole energy into answering the post-lab questions, which could come back to haunt you in the lab practical at the end of the semester. Overall, I gained a deeper understanding of general chem and I feel prepared going into my next semester of chem and biology.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate! I know it sounds cliche but it is the most important piece of advice I can give. Take the time on the homeworks and the labs to do them right because every point counts!! The tests will not be too difficult if you take the time to do these things - and study, of course. I would recommend starting to study at least a week in advance of every test, because cramming isn't going to help you.
