    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class has a lot of material that isn't connected in any certain way. It will be easy if you practice and pay attention in lecture and discussion and USE YOUR TA wisely. However, Professor Murphy will be unwilling to help you if you are "too far gone". She will tell you to drop the course and start over next semester. Do not listen to her. I survived the class just fine with a C and retook it later to receive an A from a different professor that was willing to take extra time with students who's forte was not general chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were attending discussion and finding that I wasn't the only student who was struggling and figuring out solutions together.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take it with Professor Murphy. Do not fall behind. Form study groups and attend the tutoring sessions in the library.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course with professor Carlson because she really gets the class involved and keeps your attention in the class. She also works really hard to make sure the students are understanding everything and is very nice during office hours.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about how things work on the particle level, this is much more of a qualitative class and really understanding the concepts of general chemistry. I took the engineering chem 105 as well and 104 differs from 105 in the sense that there isn't just equations to be used but it really tests how well you know what is going on in those equations or how they are derived.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the ACS standardized study guide for the final and make sure to do the online moodle homework before the exams for practice!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Carlson is an incredible teacher and it's clear that she actually loves what she teaches. She always makes herself available for students who need clarification. She is also really good at relating chemical concepts to practical applications, and makes good analogies that aid in understanding of material. She teaches in a way that prepares students for the final exam and standardized tests. I would definitely recommend taking General Chemistry with her.

    Course highlights:

    Chemistry 104 took concepts from Chemistry 102 to the next level. There was concentration in the area of solutions, acids/bases, titrations, equilibrium, and entropy.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study every day! This is not the type of material you can put off and them cram for the night before an exam. Also, a large part of this class is conceptual. Make sure you understand the overall concept of something because there is a lot of overlap in the concepts. Also, take advantage of office hours and tutoring. Sometimes hearing something explained a different way by another person can make a huge difference and make something "click".
