    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course for any students interested in being a medical professional, laboratory worker, researcher, chemist or any related professions. The concepts are very interesting to learn and it's a continuation of CHEM 115 General Chemistry 1. The powerpoint created for each chapter was concise, detailed, and very helpful in understanding the material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned physical states, colligative properties, titration rates, reaction rates, hydration energy vs. lattice energy on ionic solutes, calculating pH and pOH, and a plethora of more intriguing learning material. My favorite thing to learn was how to balance oxidation and reduction reactions by using half reactions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are confused on anything, make it a priority to get a tutor or ask the instructor for help. Mrs. Payne was great in helping me understand the topics, and she was always availiable to talk to. The Chem SoLVE course gave extra practice on working out the chemistry problems which helps solidify the material better. Study groups are a great idea, but make sure it does not turn into social loafing.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is very significant and required in majoring any science field.

    Course highlights:

    The most important memory I could remember is that there are some professors that have horrible habits of teaching in the course, such as having the verbal/lecture pace too fast/slow or not explaining the concept clearly enough. However, this works most of the time, the longer you stick through the course as the weeks go by, you'll slowly start to see yourself adjusting to the professor's flaws or find ways to overcome them. Also, some bad professors have their good side as well. They might have a bad habit of keeping a steady pace of the lecture, but they could be lenient with the grading/assignments. This also works the other way around as well. A good professor could make repetitive mistakes as well. For example, a professor could explain the concept really well, but is terrible at keeping track of the time. Overall, no matter what professor I have/had for the course, I realize that as I persistently stayed and participated in the class like I should, I start to understand the concept and overcome my professor's habits.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's obvious that in order to succeed in a class, you have to be attentive and be observant with the demonstrations or explanations that the professor/teacher is giving you. Also, DO NOT SKIP ANY CLASSES (unless it's an emergency, notify the professor immediately for any absences)! First, you're paying to attend to class. Second, your participation in and outside of the course/class counts on your transcript and reputation. Better grades, above a 3.0, will give you a better opportunity in courses, internships, jobs, etc. Also, if there is any time that you cannot grasp the concept, go to the professor's office hours or ask a friend who understands the course to help. And always do all your assignments as best as you can and on time. But don't forget to take a break once in a while outside of school so you won't stress yourself out. And the most important advice of all, WRITE A DAILY SCHEDULE, that way, you can keep organized and reminded of what to do at what time to balance your days out.
