    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The material is challenging, but it is a fun course. It requires math skills, and it is important to show up for lectures and tutoring.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about compounds, reactions, and properties of these things, that have an affect on everything in life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get extra help and stay on top of your reading. Attending the lectures helps.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it is very useful for life l, specifically if you plan on going into the medical field.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that it requires much more time than many of your other classes to succeed. You must take the time to study and prepare for the exams, because they are difficult.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never settle for mediocrity. Go above and beyond in this course and never give up. Spend your time studying and do not procrastinate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Vazquez was a fair and unbiased teacher who will make sure you understand the material well. In class, he introduces each concept, and goes over numerous examples for each. If you pay attention in class (which many will not!), it is an easy course to pass. His tests are fair and closely related to his examples, and he gives out homework that adequately prepares you for the test. He is also very generous with credit- he replaces your lowest midterm score with your second lowest, and gives a TON of extra credit homework which is great for boosting your grade. He is a chill teacher; he let me make up my exam late because I tried to contact him (at the wrong email address). I recommend Mr. Vazquez for a great introduction into chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    Chemistry 1A goes over a broad range of materials, but it mostly has to do with stoichiometry and basic reactions. Absolutely understand stoichiometry well as it is essentially half of the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you don't just look over the examples and textbook- chemistry is about doing. Do the examples, covering the answers. Mr. Vazquez also has a ton of study modules on Pearson, so do those as well. Any practice you can get with the problems is going to be super helpful when it comes time for the midterms and final. Don't give up just because a concept seems hard- most of chemistry seems complicated but gets easier when you get to understand it. Tough it out and make it through, and you will pass!
