    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chemistry can be daunting but it is a very rewarding class. Prof. Craig is an excellent lecturer and truly cares about her students. The class requires lots of work but there are so many resources on campus to get you through it.

    Course highlights:

    The quantum section of the class was the highlight for me. I had a personal breakthrough on understanding string theory. The entire section stretched my thinking in a demanding but interesting way.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with your work all quarter so that studying for exams is much easier. End of chapter questions are a very useful study tool

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend the course to any students wanting to go into STEM or the health sciences field. Not only is it a requirement, but it's also a great course to take in your first year of college as it is a review but a more in-depth re-learning process of chemistry compared to high school. In addition, it covers a variety of topics like nomenclature to quantum mechanics, so it's definitely not a bore. This is at the University of Washington, Seattle, but the school tab won't let me choose the school.

    Course highlights:

    This was actually my favorite out of the three general chemistry course series. The highlights would be learning about chemical reactions and calculating the products, because when you understand that concept, labs become much more enjoyable and you feel like a real scientist, being able to predict what your outcome of chemical reactions may be.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    An advice I would give is definitely get a study group to do reviews and complete practice questions together. Making a mini-classroom for yourself with your peers is definitely a must especially for chemistry courses. Do the textbook problems, look for solutions, and when you don't understand it even after discussing with your peers, then go find the professor at office hours, ready with questions to ask. They will definitely help you out! It had been 3 years since I took high school chemistry, but it was not a problem at all if you focus and are willing to learn!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course not only because it is challenging, but because it forces one to put in real effort to succeed. In a class of over 500 people, with a curve so harsh that 1/3 of the class will fail, taking this course is truly an exercise of mental strength and willpower. This course is challenging in ways that other courses are not because the chances of failure are very real, which makes it so much more rewarding when you succeed.

    Course highlights:

    This course covers many concepts, including stoichiometry, atomic structure, titration, gas laws, and much more. What I liked particularly was the experience we had in lab. Although labs are both challenging and time consuming, they really help you form a more concrete understanding of the subject and how the concepts apply in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class. Also, rather than spending all your time reading the book, use free study time to do practice problems in the back of each chapter. These are enormously helpful. Also, before going into lab, make sure you know every detail of the lab you are about to do, and complete any work you can before going into lab (draw tables, do calculations). My partner and I did this, and we finished an hour early almost every time.
