    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class made chemistry exciting and understandable. I was terrified of taking this class at first, it seemed extremely difficult. However, after taking this Chemistry 3a class with professor Demmons, I developed a great liking to the subject.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class were all the experiments that were conducted over the course. These experiments were exciting and amazing to conduct. I have learned many things over this course. For example, I have memorized the entire periodic table of elements, and I have learned about many different chemical compounds.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If chemistry is a class you are required to take, take this specific course. Learning will come natural and by following the step by step guidelines, you are guaranteed to learn.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very challenging course. I would recommend it because it is hard. The hardest classes are usually the most rewarding. Make sure you study every single day, and ask questions. I also highly recommend a study group! They help a lot. Professor Hok speaks fast and expects you to ask questions. You are able to have a 3x5 index card on his tests, take advantage! Learn the periodic table as soon as you can, that will be necessary. Sit up front!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to balance equations which was my absolute favorite. It was challenging sometimes because I am terrible at math and didn't study the periodic table, but if you study the periodic table and are decent at math you will be fine.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure if you're taking this course it is the only course that is challenging. I took Algebra two and this course at the same time and it was extremely difficult. This course needs to have most or all of your attention. It is a heavy loaded course that needs extreme concentration and extra study hours. Do not give up, it is worth it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Highly recommended. Chemistry is an important subject that helps you understand your surroundings. Curiosity is a very important part of our evolution as human beings, and this subject fulfills that basic for you.

    Course highlights:

    Chemicals are everywhere. Our body, your surrounding, your computer, etc. Within these chemicals are mixture of chemicals or just a pure substance. Chemicals explain what we see, what we feel, and so much more that I can explain.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't give up and always make sure to study ahead before lectures, so it helps supplement your understanding. If in dire need of help, don't be afraid to ask questions. Make sure to also understand each chapter carefully before moving onto the next one. PRACTICE! practice! practice!
