    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend Dr Crowder's course. It is a difficult subject and her high level of organization, method of teaching and supplemental study materials will help you excel. The lab is designed for the student to master important skills and gain critical thinking skills. The skills you learn in lab are actual employable skills and the course should be taken seriously. Read your book, read your class notes and be sure to work out more homework problems that are assigned. This is key. The assigned homework problems are only a sample of the type of chemistry skills you are expected to know. Working out one type of problem will not lead to mastery

    Course highlights:

    Improved math skills, improved confidence in my science skills. I am no longer afraid of chemistry. I came into this class as an adult nontraditional student. Years ago when I first went to college I actually failed chemistry! But I think that fear and terror actually fueled me. I KNEW I had to work 3 times harder than probably everyone else in the class. I did not shy away from the hard work and it paid off. I got an A.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend the class you paid so much for - studies show that for every class you miss you lose 0.5 a letter grade. Sit in the front row, again not doing so causes the potential loss of 0.5 a letter grade. Study earlier in the day, rather than later - again this can improve your grade by 0.5 a letter grade. Those things alone are simple to do! Of course, read your notes, do more homework problems than are assigned, take advantage of office hours, and concept map your knowledge. Chemistry is not about cramming before a test. Chemistry is about gaining cumulative knowledge. It keeps building on itself and not just for this class but subsequent classes as well.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great beginning chemistry course and the professor is really good at making sure everyone is on board and is understanding the things she is talking about.

    Course highlights:

    I learned stoichiometry so much better than I was taught in high school or anywhere else, and I got a really good understanding and now am able to do those problems with no problem.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every lecture and pay attention to the notes, and if you are having trouble understanding something, don't be afraid to ask questions or go to office hours.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My recommendations would go both ways. On one hand, he is a tough teacher and his teaching styles are at time confusing and complicated, however when you finally crack his code, the class becomes easier, especially if you study on your own.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course of General Chemistry, I learned just that, the general, lowest level of chemistry such as equations, elements, bonds, chemicals, and the periodic table in depth. The labs are completely hands on dealing with different chemicals, watching their reactions, and learning why these things happen.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you keep up with your readings and don't just forget and brush off the practice problems. they really help!
