    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Olds always takes everyone's questions seriously. He does not rush through the material. He spends time going over each concept. His tests are really challenging, but he uses them as learning opportunities, no matter the grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to not give up when the material became challenging. Not only did I learn General Chemistry, Professor Olds shared his interests in Geology and encouraged us to use what we learned in class and apply it to real life situations. He taught us to problem solve beyond the written tests.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Sit up front and ask a lot of questions! Don't be afraid to not know what is going on. The material is challenging, so try to summarize the chapter before you go to lecture. That way, you can flag the concepts that are unclear right off the bat.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was incredibly challenging. If you missed one day of either class or lab you were automatically in danger of failing the class.

    Course highlights:

    The professor was really passionate about what he was teaching and he had a lot of patience about reviewing material students did not understand.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, take all the notes you can, and make good partners for the labs or the course could be a little overwhelming.
