    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    DVC has one of the most difficult chem programs, modeled after UC berkeley , but harder with the same professors. the lack of fume hoods and well-funded doctorates hurt

    Course highlights:

    too much about the natural world

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    study like everyday and when you're done study more cuz you're gonna fail

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I actually hated Chemistry. But I really enjoyed this class. I think it's because my professor was awesome and also I could make an awesome study group. Through lab, the relationship between students become stronger, and you can make really good study buddy.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of stuffs. Chem 120 was kind of hard for me but I got an A in this class. In addition, my professor taught us the material for next class which is Chem 121. so I feel I'm ready for it.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Before Chem 120, you have to take Chem 108 or pass an assesmet test. I passed assesment test but it wasn't actually helped me understand chem 120 materials. So if you are not science person, it's better to take Chem108 before 120.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking general college chemistry, if it is required for your major(s), because it is a thorough course that teaches the basis of chemistry. It allows students to familiarize themselves with important concepts and test these theories first hand through lab experiments.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would definitely be the lab experiments. If you had not had much lab experience in high school, like me, then it is a challenge for sure. However, it is truly rewarding to learn to light a bunsen burning the first try or perform perfect pipetting. You will acquire these skills and many more through this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class you need to be prepared to put your best efforts in. Don't skip lecture and absolutely not labs. Prepare well before each lab and make sure to read the chapters in the textbooks of the sections that you do not completely understand in class. Most importantly, don't be afraid to talk to you teacher. If you are confused or need help, your teacher is your greatest resource.
