    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Ashcroft is not only a competent professor, but also maintains a human relationship that transcends the standard student-teacher link. He cracks jokes and tries to make the class enjoyable, and his guidelines are not strict. This way, I was allowed to learn at my own pace, but still understood and applied concepts very easily on the exams and in my later chemistry courses.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a thorough understanding of stoichiometry, or the study of chemical reactions themselves. Furthermore, he gave very in-depth lectures regarding atomic theory and orbitals, which bridged very smoothly into his discussion of Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion theory and other bonding theories. I usually struggle to retain information once I've passed a class, but Ashcroft's teaching style really solidified what I've learned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time, and do not be afraid to ask for help. Professor Ashcroft, though he may seem cantankerous and sassy on the outside, is actually a very understanding and patient person. He will be more than happy to walk you through confusing or challenging concepts during his office hours.
