    Mrs. Freschl is an amazing teacher, she explains everything really well and makes you want to learn

    Course highlights:

    I learned about biochemical science.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course because it is an interesting class that covers a wide range of topics and makes you work hard. It is interesting to see how chemistry applies to the real world and how it affects everything around you. This class changes how you look at the world and gives you a greater perspective on everything around you. Professor Murphy was a great professor who was very kind and knowledgeable, she did whatever she could to help you learn and to help you do well into her class. However, it is a very challenging class and if you take this class you must be ready to study a lot and put a lot of work into this class.

    Course highlights:

    In this class I learned a lot about a wide range of topics, including the fundamental building blocks p the microscopic world and how microscopic chemical processes affect the physical world around us and changes everything around us, unseen by the naked eye. Professor Murphy was an amazing teacher who taught her students a lot about the chemical world.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Students considering taking this course should expect to study a lot and should take advantage of office hours and extra credit that is offered. There is a lot of content covered in this course and, and it requires a lot of work to succeed in this class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While this class was fast-paced, the professor was hard, and there is a lot of information that you needed to know and remember the entire semester. The silver lining is that your chemistry and studying skills will greatly improve.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I refreshed my memory on the basic chemistry that most have taken in high school (that concluded the first week of class) and then on the new stuff; (which included thermo-chemistry, acid/base reactions, redox reactions, everything to do with enthalpy, and liquids/solids and a few more things that were eaiser). Unfortunately, there were times outside of lecture that many students had to teach themselves the material, because at times lecture is hard to follow, but still do attend all lectures. What I gained and I hope others will also gain is that you are smarter than you think, you may not get the grades that you hoped for in this class and you may get really upset. However, you are learning something new and that in itself is hard, just reach out to fellow students, your TA, even the professor, and you will succeed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering the course, or have to take it for your major. Be prepared to feel a little lost at times. I highly recommend going to every lecture, discussion, lab and if you can the torturing. I have found that note cards are the easiest to study off of, but where there is math involved, you must do practice problems (sometimes they try to trick you). Good Luck!
