    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was all a test of how well you can handle the unorganized structure while being put under huge amounts of stress. A lot of the material was blown through and at points you'd feel you could keep up and then the class throws you a curveball.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to complete lab reports which is the only thing I will take with me to CHEM 104.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The course in general should be easy if you took CHEM 100 because its a little review of that and a little more new material. The professor, however, did not have labs linked with her lectures and gave too much homework to handle without mentioning the due date. My advice: don't enroll in the course with Anja Blecking as your professor.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class requires a lot of work. You have three lectures a week, a lab once a week, a discussion once a week, and exams that are scheduled at a different time then lecture. Missing class and not studying can cause you to fall behind really fast.

    Course highlights:

    At the end of the course I got to see how many different chemistry topics are all related to each other. In other classes it was like I was learning things just to be able to get a good grade and it wasn't really giving me any knowledge that I could use. For example, at the end of the course I learned why we can skate on ice. The blade actually melts the ice. An increase in pressure from a persons weight on a small thin blade lowers the melting point and allows for people to skate. There are also other factors like intramolecular forces, intermolecular forces, shapes, bond angles, and electron configuration that all explain why this only works and why it won't work on something like glass.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Doing the reading before the lecture helps. I also watched youtube videos on the topic if I didn't understand it because I didn't have much time to actually go to a teaching assistant or the professor for help. Staying on top of the online homework should keep you on pace with the class.
