    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives you a deeper understanding of Chemistry and if you listen to what the professor says about passing the class, you will pass.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about lab safety and lab behavior. The lab is a serious place of business and the strict rules must be followed. I also learned about different ways to make batteries and how to test different liquids for acidity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep on top of the homework and always read the book, or at least skim it before the lecture on it. Then any questions you may have can be answered, or you can ask then.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Recommended because it really tests your character and studying skills. It will teach you more about yourself than just chemistry alone. If you have strong algebra skills, you will really like this course. Dr. Zabzdyr is a great lecturer and makes the material easy to understand, just make sure to do practice problems on your own time!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were being able to run independent, individual labs and being able to get help when I needed it. I learned more about time management and study skills in addition to learning chemistry. It's pretty interesting to be able to apply what I have learned to real world chemical problems.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT FALL BEHIND in this class! it will be impossible to catch up, as the material not only builds on itself, but gets tougher and tougher along the way. Make sure you go to all tutoring sessions, and see Dr. Zabzdyr in her office hours. Her exams are extremely difficult, but if you ask her for help, she is more than willing to help you out with whatever you need. She expects a lot from her students so if you do problems repetitively that she provides, you should do okay. Only take this course if you are a dedicated student with good discipline.
