    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is pretty good. While I had already taken AP Chemistry in High School this course did go a lot deeper it definitely did question a lot of the structure of previous chemistry problems. I definitely recommend Professor Kunkel, although her exams are multiple choice they do a good job at challenging you at an adequate level. If you study hard and put a good amount of effort in your homework and preparations for exams, there shouldn't be a reason for you to not get an A. Professor Kunkel is very approachable in her office hours and the practice exams are an incredible tool to study.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course is the in-class demonstrations, learning about pH, titrations and the gas laws were also pretty fun, the gas laws were largely unknown by me yet.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't leave off assignments to the very last minute, it's pretty hard to get back in focus for the exams if you put off studying and don't pay attentions in class. The exams are pretty conveniently placed after weekends mostly so studying 2-3 days before is possible and highly recommended. DO the practice problems, ALEKS is frustrating just don't leave it off to the last minute. Also if you have any questions about anything go to the office hours, it is an excellent resource.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This teacher is so so in love with Chemistry and because of that she has such an in depth grasp of chemistry and will be able to help you so much. But she's such an amazing teacher you probably won't need that much help out of class!

    Course highlights:

    I had a way better understanding of Chemistry than I did in high school.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the Aleks, ask questions because otherwise you will get lost very quickly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I never liked chemistry, but Professor Kunkel made me excited to come to class and made me intetested in learning the material. Though I am still not strong in chemistry, I know I have come a long way and I still look forward to learning more.

    Course highlights:

    Chemistry at UCSB is a 3 quartet course. A highlight was first quarter chem 1A as it is the basis for the course as a whole. Throughout the year I learned topics ranging from simple stoichiometry to quantum mechanics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, but do not panic. The class is tough, yes. And sometimes your grade will not reflect the work you put in. But do not worry. Because in the end, you will realize that you have learned an incredible amount.
