    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Chem 2A is supposed to prepare you for the subsequent chemistry classes. It is an important foundation. Toupadakis, who probably has tenure, has either done too many drugs or lost his mind. It is important that if you get him as a professor you are not discouraged to learn the material. It is important.

    Course highlights:

    General chem 2A stuff. Everything in the reader. Learn the reader.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the reader. Read all of it. Do practice problems. This will allow you to pass the class at the very least.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it pushes students to their limits. There are some aspects that are either interesting/fun or extremely hard and boring. I like that it keeps you on your feet, because that makes you study more.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is the professor, he's so awesome. He's funny and genuinely there for you if students ever need help with the material. My favorite lesson was when we learned about titrations and then demonstrated them in your weekly lab class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to STUDY, REVIEW, and STUDY. You have to keep up on your own, this isn't high school anymore. Make sure that if you ever feel unsure about something; talk to the professor, the TAs, tutors, or even ask fellow classmates. There are resources on campus for FREE, take advantage.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Toupadakis is one of the most clear instructors I have had in a long time. Chemistry can be very challenging and difficult to understand. Professor Toupadakis teaches even the most complex of concepts so that students never leave the lecture hall confused. Since he also uses his own readers, as opposed to standard textbooks, for his main lecture material, you can put your absolute trust in his methods, which are guaranteed to work given that you study.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Toupadakis also cares dearly for his students. In addition to teaching us Chemistry, he takes time out of his hour of lecture to encourage students to continue their education with enthusiasm and compassion. He lives to see his students strive in college, and does not want to see anyone suffer due to stress or fear of failure.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though Professor Toupadakis is clear during lectures, you still need to go back and read his reader. The information in the reader is like gold, it is the most valuable thing you will have for this course. Even the best of memorizers will have trouble taking tests if they just work off of memory.
