    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Wouldn't recommend. Professors covered only the bare minimum during lecture. Lab might be better or not depending on your TF. Office hours always crowded, and there's little time for individual questions. Overall, a weed-out class that isn't intended for teaching students, especially those with little background in chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    Learned introduction to chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Course requires "40+ hours a week" and leaves very little time for other classes, so most of your semester will be spent on this class. Be prepared to teach yourself all the material and only get minimal assistance from discussion leaders. If required, take over the summer, maybe at another school.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a requirement for many science majors and to be premedical however, be prepared to spend most of your time either in class or doing homework. The syllabus is very intensive and detail-oriented, covering a vast majority of topics.

    Course highlights:

    The syllabus included dimensional analysis, chemical reactions, water, modeling atoms and their electrons, and modeling bonding in molecules.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, go to class and take notes, mark questions you have during lecture if you're too afraid to ask them, do the discussion packets, and definitely allow yourself enough time to study for exams throughout the semester. If you are having trouble, don't be afraid to ask someone, whether a teacher or student, for help, it'll really help you in the long run to understand what you're learning.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a truly difficult course, but it really tests your passion for pre-med (as many of the students in gen chem are pre-med). After the first few tests, the class size dropped significantly, while the averages only increased. However, you do learn a lot in this class! They cover material very quickly, so get help right away if you need it. Challenging, but worth it.

    Course highlights:

    Besides lecture, there were also chemistry discussions every week held by teaching assistants. These were really helpful because questions could be thoroughly answered and several problems were completed in one sitting (with the aid of the teaching assistant if necessary).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get help right away if you need it! Material is covered very quickly, so do not wait! There are many resources you can use from the education research center to office hours, so please use them.
