    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Polo is and excellent instructor! She is very thorough in her explanations and answers questions very well. I highly recommend taking CHEM 101 with her.

    Course highlights:

    I was never very good at chemistry in high school so I feel like this course helped me grasp the basic concepts of chemistry that I may need to know for my upper level classes, as well as my biology major in general.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to be successful, you definitely need to attend class and pay attention during lecture. Attending recitation is also very important because you get practice with actually applying the information you learned in lecture.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself wasn't too challenging but definitely take advantage of office hours because the lecture and the test/quiz material doesn't always match up. Overall you will need to study for the ACS on your own.

    Course highlights:

    Going to Topich's office hours are the most important part of the course for me, it's where I learned the most of the material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Office Hours Reading the Book Flashcards

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Moussa is a great professor who really does care about how well you do in his course. He teaches in a very clear way with multiple examples, which really helps to grasp the more complex topics. He also gives you most of the formulas so all that's required is knowledge of how to use it. I really recommend his class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of basic chemistry from this course. The beginning starts out kind of slow, with a large comprehensive review of high school chemistry. However, as the year went on I learned more about line spectra, thermodynamics, and gas laws. These all set me up very well for chem 102 and for my future chemistry classes as a chem major.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I suggest that you always do the homework and if necessary find practice tests online as they tend to be very useful for mastering topics. The hardest part is the quantum chemistry, which really requires dedicated studying and memorization of every minute detail.
