    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Warnaar explains everything in a way that makes sense and the topics build on what was learned in CHEM 131. CHEM 131 felt like many topics were thrown at you, but in CHEM 132, the topics seem to build on each other and connections can easily be made.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was how every topic learned was related to the other topics taught. Even though this class was difficult, it taught me how to work for the grade I wanted to earn.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you have to complete the practice problems. If you do not complete the practice problems when the topic is discussed, you will fall behind and have a lot of catching to do before the exams. The questions on the exams and quizzes are very similar to the problems in the book, so if you are familiar with the book problems, you will do well on the exams..

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Never having taken an intensive chemistry course in high school, college chemistry hit me with the biggest academic challenge I've ever faced. Chem 131, the pre-req to 132, required multiple hours every time I studied, just so I could keep up. I ended with a hard-fought B. 132 came along and everything was so much clearer, with a firm foundation of chemistry worked for in the first semester, second semester I was relieved when the concepts were coming to me as quickly as the rest of the class. I was even excited to learn the new concepts. This is all to say, I know that these chemistry courses are a boat load of work, however, you can receive a good grade if the work that is needed is put in. It is not impossible, and surely if I can excel in these courses, you can too.

    Course highlights:

    This course, as opposed to Chem 131, was more math-based. Many more equations were implemented into the problems, and not much conceptual knowledge was needed to structure those equations. The labs, I felt, were more helpful and educational to the lecture. I did not dread 132 nearly as much as I did 131. If you read the text book and do the work, you will be rewarded in your grade.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ the text book. The professors make their own slides and PowerPoints, however not all of their material will be on the test. Also, if you do not quite understand your professor's style of teaching (as it was in my case) the book offers a different approach that come with practice problems and assisted solutions to each section.
