    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Shulman is an amazing professor and person... don't be intimidated by her. Basics learned in this course WILL apply to your later science classes (if you keep with it), so it's worth learning this material.

    Course highlights:

    Fundamentals of chemistry continued from Chem I. Would recommend taking these two in succession.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to ChemSMC (if it still exists?) The professors know and talk about who goes (I used to be a tutor there). Ask lots of questions in class - Shulman teaches because she loves it, not because she has to, so she appreciates students who take an interest.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor would print out her power-points for us and would write extra notes on the board. She would describe each topic in great detail which made it easier to understand the course. The notes given in class were thoroughly helpful in learning new material that wouldn't be forgotten right after the test.

    Course highlights:

    This course can be very challenging because there is a ton of information that needs to be covered. In this class the professor made the class a lot easier by making sure that students would understand the topics. She also gave several practice worksheets and homework assignments that challenged what we learned.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Take thorough notes and pay attention to the details that the professor emphasizes. Also, make sure you try on the homework assignments because they test what you know.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class was interesting, only if you are interested in this subject. The tests are very difficult and the majority of your grade in the class. Yet, don't let that stop you from taking the course as Professor Held is fantastic. Not only does she take the time to go over the topics you are having difficulties with during her office hours, she is also very approachable and willing to help you out any way she can.

    Course highlights:

    I learnt a lot during this class, such as stoichiometry, all about energy, and balancing equations among other basic chemistry topics. The highlights for me were mostly during the accompanying lab, as it is very satisfying to visually see the representation of what you are learning about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start strong. It may seem easy to begin with but it gets progressively more difficult and builds on top of each subject. So, if you don't do well in one subject you are in a lot of trouble for the rest of the class. Take the time to seriously study each week, even if it's just an hour each weekday to review what you learned in class. Likewise, don't be afraid to ask for help, I found study groups to be helpful as well as extra time with one on one attention from the professor.
