This class was tough.
I would recommend the course to all who want to have a thorough understanding of General Chemistry II. It is a difficult course and is not for the faint of heart. All your time and effort will be needed to successfully complete this course. His lectures are great and he provides all the information and resources on his website as well as the labs.
What I gained from this course is how to handle lab data with precise measurements and validity. He would explain the lab before he starts it but make sure you read and complete the pre-lab assignments days prior to the start of the lab. This course focused heavily on stoichiometry but most of the material besides thermochemistry /thermodynamics is new.

Advice for students:
I would HIGHLY recommend students to read the book! I know it sounds cliche but trust me it will help you get a better understanding on what you are learning about instead of just relying on classroom lectures. Whatever chapter you have scheduled for the day, read about it before the start of class, jot down some notes and questions. Then when its lecture time, you will have a better understanding of what you just read and hopefully have answers to your questions. After lecture is over, if you still have questions, make it a priority to figure it out on your own and if you can't, immediately set a time with your professor to ask for help. Also, try working on some of the book problems at the end of the chapter or in between to study so that when it's test time, you'll hopefully be better prepared for it.
