    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a required course so definitely not a top choice of mine; however, it could have been much worse. This class requires hours worth of studying and it's really worth all that time! Although I felt that no matter how hard I studied I just couldn't fully absorb the entirety of the concepts, or even if I did understand, my teacher would put trick questions on the exams. This class involves a lot of memorizing basic theories and formulas and if you're good at that then it's absolutely a bonus.

    Course highlights:

    If I had to go back to high school and teach chemistry I believe I could teach more than my teacher ever taught me. Now, I can break apart the periodic table and explain why it's organized the way it is, I know all about gas laws and the laws associated with other states of matter, I can explain all about atoms/molecules/ions and their properties, and can calculate between finding an element/compound's molarity, particle size, mass, or volume.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's really important to be quick on getting out information for exams - so even if you know that you know a concept, ensure that you are capable of explaining it from the top of your memory so flash cards on these concepts and vocab really help. Also, there's a lot of problem solving so even if you may think you know how to work out a problem find as many examples as you can to solve and when you get stuck definitely go to office hours and talk with your TA! TA's are your best friend in this class as they're the ones that really know you and have time to help. A few days before the test ask them about what kinds of things will be on the exam and where to focus your attention in studying.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was very difficult and fast paced. She spent a lot of time doing examples but not actually going over the material that was necessary for the midterms.

    Course highlights:

    I got a better knowledge of what I learned in high school chemistry but most of the other material is a blur because she went so fast and did not go in depth about it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you study really hard for the midterms because a lot of the stuff on the midterm she spent about 5 minutes in lecture on it.
