    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is by far the most challenging class I have had in my college career but I learned so much about Chemistry and the labs were fun as well as interesting. The tests in lecture were hard because they were so specific and it required a lot of studying.

    Course highlights:

    What I learned most was how to be self-sustaining with experiments. In many science labs, students simply receive the protocol and follow steps whether it works or not and that is all. With the lab component of this course, we had to figure out our own way to conduct an experiment and in most labs had to decipher what a certain "unknown" compound was. It taught me a lot about critical thinking and made me apply my knowledge to produce correct results. If the experiment didn't work out, you had to include what could have happened in the reports, which makes you reflect on your work and problem solve to see the issue. The lecture taught me many specific methods of chemical analysis to get the most accurate answer possible, which is important for a future in research and development.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in lecture (definitely go to class) and make sure for the exam you practice practice practice! The basis of this course is mathematical and somewhat conceptual, but the exams considered both and required that you apply the knowledge to answer the problems. In lab, make sure to pay attention to every detail in the procedure and to take your time to make sure the steps are correct.
