    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a dry class and the teacher did have the tendency to be hard to follow. Interesting content if you can follow, and especially interesting if you enjoy explosive demonstrations.

    Course highlights:

    I especially enjoyed the demos, as well as the lab experiments. I loved the hands on portions of it. Also, once the instructor got into a comfortable pace in lecture, it was easy to follow. I now understand a good chunk of chemistry; at least the common terminology that would allow me to reason through something.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of office hours, tutoring centers, form study groups and do not fall behind. It is so hard to catch up, since so many concepts are built upon the last thing you learned. Also, invest your time in discovering your own learning process. That skill is valuable beyond measure throughout any challenging class.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    i would recommend this course because the professor was very helpful and supportive. always helping you achieve the grade you want and it was a fun course and educational.

    Course highlights:

    highlights were the experiments you got to do in lab, also you got assigned a lab partner which was great. i learned a ton about chemistry and acids and how certain liquids contradict each other.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    pay attention to the lectures. Dont slack off going to classes everyday and go to professors open office hours. it will be hard work but pays off in the end.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Giuliani is awesome. He is a great professor and super knowledgeable about chemistry. The one thing is the class is not easy. He expects you to put the effort in, do the homework, participate, come to class, study for tests, and in general be an active learner. Whether or not you are having trouble in the class, forming study groups and/or visiting the tutoring center is essential to passing.

    Course highlights:

    The final project is particularly exciting! You have the opportunity to choose an element and write a scientific paper on not only its properties, but also how it affects human health and the environment. Then, you have to give an oral presentation on it, complete with a trifold board, and even a powerpoint if you choose to do so. Work hard on this project! It will be memorable and inspiring if you do!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You absolutely need to have a strong foundation in math, Algebra 2 or more is helpful, as is geometry and trig. This is a course for med students/ science majors, so don't take this chemistry for fun.
