    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this because if you plan on getting involved in biology or just chemistry in general, this provides a huge understand and foundation in how things come together and work and function .

    Course highlights:

    The best thing I like about the course so far is the stoichiometry. It's funny because I was terrible at converting elements and compounds when I took chemistry in high school. I'm also taking the lab, and I enjoyed the percent yield lab the most.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Go through the chapter a day before lecture on that chapter. Takes notes of the lecture. Have an empty notebook to rewrite those notes. That will be your study guide. If you're like me and you still don't understand it well enough, search the organic chemistry tutor. He has a playlist of videos for general chemistry (as well as calculus and more) and I just plain like him more than Khan Academy and Khan Academy is awesome. The homework is online and I like doing that after reading, rewriting notes, and gaining a better understanding, and letting the online homework act as a review in itself. The teacher allows infinite tries with the homework.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend CHEM 1100 because it taught me a lot about the components that make up the physical world that we live in. I learned what chemicals can and cannot be mixed together, the purpose of the periodic table and what each element stood for. I wish I knew more about chemicals before taking the course, as I could have suggested experiments to my professor.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was being able to be a scientist in lab. I had the opportunity to experiment with chemicals that I might not ever be able to get my hands on again. Chemical reactions were fascinating to observe and understand through my own data that I collected during lab.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend to read chapters before lecture to have a foundation for what will be covered. This helped me with my understanding a lot and allowed me to prepare any questions that I had for my instructor. Practice problems are a must if you want to do well on exams! Staying focused, determined and motivated to pursue my future career as a pediatric physical therapist helped me get an A in this course!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course, especially in the summer, because its a great way to make sure you stay on track with your degree requirements. It's also helpful in keeping you immersed in chemistry concepts and getting you ready for the next semester.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the labs and discussions. During lab, we preformed a lot of fun and challenging experiments which helped us better understand the chemistry concepts we learned during lecture. The discussions were helpful in that they let us work together and practice problems from the textbook.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, students really need to read the textbook, and read it ahead. There's no room for procrastination. Concepts really do add up and build over time so it's a good idea to keep up with the course in terms of assigned readings and homework. Also, missing a lecture or lab can be detrimental, so always attend class!
