    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to any pre-med/engineering student. Although it is a very rigorous course, it helps you understand a little bit more about why certain materials change under certain circumstances. It also helps you brush up on your math and critical thinking skills, something everyone can benefit on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is learning about organic molecules and the different types of bonds. You also learn about the difference between a base and an acid and how to name different molecules once elements bond.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read the book BEFORE class. Sometimes you will not go over everything in class and if you have any questions what so ever it's a good idea to ask them during lecture. Sometimes in the lecture she asks questions that you need the book to answer, and if you get them right they're extra credit.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was super informative and the professor always explained concepts thoroughly enough so that if didn't feel too lost.

    Course highlights:

    Sometimes the professor would do experiments in class, like fill a balloon with a gas and use heat to make it pop, so class was rarely ever boring. We learned mostly about energy levels of electrons and some basic things like element and compound names.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the book, and ask questions if you don't understand a concept.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend any chemistry course that you don't have to take. They are extremely hard.

    Course highlights:

    Most of Chem 105 was review from Chemistry in high school, but I know that wasn't the case for a lot of people. Either way, this course is hard. Make sure you do plenty of practice problems before the exam. Dr. O puts a lot of problems on her exams so you have to work efficiently to finish.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to SI!!!! SI saved me! It is like a little summary of what you learn in class and you get to do more practice problems! The practice problems in SI are similar to what Dr. O has on the exams. Also, go to class, its graded. Start on your homework early! There are a lot of problems and it is very time consuming.
