    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great class to take when you are getting into science, needed for most science related majors and very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    You gain the basic understanding of chemistry. I most enjoyed learning the types of elements and how to create formulas from them. You also learn a lot about energy and how it interacts with matter which is interesting to learn about.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Start studying well in advance and you will do fine. It's all about trying out these problems until you really understand how to do it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was really hard. It was a Summer class so everything was fast paced. You have a night, two nights during the weekends, to learn a whole chapter. Along with a new concept, you have vocabulary, formulas, etc to mash into your brain.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the lab part because we were able to do some experiments. It was great being able to work with chemicals and putting what we learned into action.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study every night. Make flash cards and look through them whenever possible. She expects you to know things from previous lectures so make sure you look over your notes.

    The class informed me on chemical reactions that happen to daily life objects, which increased my interest in Chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice the unit conversion word problems by breaking down the question. Go over your recent notes each day so it stays in your memory.
