    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me that chemistry is more than just periodic tables and volumetric flask, it shows you the beauty that is science. At first, I was intimidated because chemistry isn't my favorite subject, but instead of throwing formula and scientific laws at us my professor allowed us to see science through his eyes.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the highlights of this course would be learning how to use different tools that actual scientist use. Unlike a typical science course that's primarily textbook and useless labs, each and every lab assigned had something to do with the real world. For example, we did an experiment where we learned about how certain metals such as copper, zinc, or aluminum react with liquids and finding ways to relate this back to products we use on a day-to-day basis.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course requires you to keep up. That means reading required text over the weekend, doing practice problems, and studying ahead. If you start off strong and stay focused it's pretty easy.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course for anyone trying to challenge themselves in school. But it isn't the content that makes me recommend this course; it's the professor. Professor Lawson is an excellent teacher, but his methods make the class challenging and intriguing.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, I attained the skills needed to continue to the next chemistry course, as well as the necessary skills needed to properly prepare myself for this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are going to take this course, do not think that the book is your only resource, because there is so much more out there that we don't even realize we could use to help us study. Making use of YouTube videos by KhanAcademy and CrashCourse are just some of the tools I found myself using on a daily basis to help me succeed in this course. Reading other books, like "Chemistry for Dummies" and other textbooks are not something you should think aren't helpful; if anything, they're some of the most valuable tools you could use.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course with this professor because it is a very important course to those who are seeking a career with a degree in the natural sciences. General chemistry with Dr. Stewart is key because not only does she teach you about chemistry but she teaches you how to learn by allowing you to develop different study habits and organizational skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of chemistry, how to balance equations, the way the periodic table is organized, the anatomy of atoms and different elements, the difference betweens acids and bases, thermodynamics and also conversion factors. I took the course 3 years ago and find myself applying basic strategies I learned in general chemistry in other courses that I'm currently taking.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You get what you put into it. If you want a good grade you have to put in the time. My advice is do not slack off, hit the ground running from day one and try to use as many study resources as you can, the sky is the limit when it comes to resources for chemistry. This course builds on itself meaning everything you learn from day one will follow you until the end of the course so stay on top of everything, it is a fun course.
