    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class because I needed a science class with a class to fulfill transfer requirements; however, this is definitely not a beginners level course and all of peers in class were nursing or bio majors would practically knew everything.

    Course highlights:

    It was fun and interesting to have hand-ons experiences with working with different chemicals and substances and see how they react the way they do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Utilize tutoring available at your school; it definitely pays off. Also use ratemyprofessor.com. There a huge different on how this course is taught.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I can honestly say that I have never learned as much in a class as I did from Professor Karyn's Chem 121.

    Course highlights:

    I can still tell you about some of the elements that we learned about and why glass cracks the way it does. I even reference my chem "book" (it's 3 hole punched paper in a binder) when I have questions about somethings and that was just last semester!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a tough class, you will have to study. Thankfully Professor Karyn makes it fun and she goes over things so often you almost feel like it's killing a dead horse but it is because the more you hear it the more it sinks in. She encourages group work outside of the lab and even has us go up to the board, not caring if we got something wrong because that is just one more way to learning the right answer.
