This class was tough.
I took two years of Chemistry in High School, including an AP course. I can tell you that it's a difficult class, but it's not impossible. This class more than any other actually requires you to do the homework, study on your own time and ask yourself if you actually understand what's being taught. It's very rewarding though and you will learn a lot about the world, but more importantly, about yourself and your work ethic.
Highlights include learning how to convert between units of measurement by memory, remembering all the elements of the periodic table by heart, learning to set up equations for dimensional analysis and stoichiometry, memorizing the process for oxidation-reduction reactions and doing thermodynamic equations on my own.

Advice for students:
Take it. It teaches you how to effectively study and manage your time. You'll learn about how the universe fundamentally works, but also how rigorous courses can be and how you have to handle them.
