    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend taking a summer coarse at a college near or abroad from you. Not only does it give you knowledge on a certain subject, you gain the daily college experience. If you want to get some college credit completed ahead of time, it is best to do a summer course at any college you desire.

    Course highlights:

    Taking the college course through a high school program was actually, the highlight of my summer. The highlights of the course however included: getting to know new people, getting to know what studying in college is like, getting to feel the vibe of college life, and most importantly-- given the opportunity to learn. Taking Chemistry made me consider some future life and major choices for college. Chem 001A was a basic introductory class, so it was mostly review from high school chemistry. The learning aspect for me, came from the labs. Every lab was hands on and interactive, which was the best and most fun learning experience by far.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking a course on a college campus, you should consider the library as your home. It is the perfect place to study on your own, and even study in a group. Taking notes during lecture and discussion is key to obtaining the material for the course. Take advantage of tutoring, you should never feel afraid for getting some help; people are always there for you. Ask questions! Never be too afraid to go to the professor him/herself. A mistake of mine, was being afraid of meeting with the professor. From what my peers mentioned, talking and getting help from the professor was the best decision they have ever made. Talking to the professor actually gave you an advantage to obtaining more information and learning how to do specific problems and even getting help or having any of your questions answered. College chemistry is a tough course, you should definitely consider seeking help when needed.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Chemistry is a hard class in itself, so getting the right professor is crucial to ensure your success. I thought my professor was funny and did a good job teaching. It helped to have someone who could make the lectures a little more enjoyable, while still teaching you what you need to know. If you are taking chemistry at UCR, try to get Dr. Hill.

    Course highlights:

    This is an introductory chemistry course so we didn't learn the most exciting concepts, however they are fundamental parts of chemistry that are required for more advanced classes. We started off learning basic things such as unit conversions and dimensional analysis and gradually worked our way up to more difficult concepts like stoichiometry. I learned how to predict and balance combustion, precipitate, acid/base, and redox reactions. Everything you learn in the beginning chapters builds on to the later chapters, so take the class seriously early on and do not slack off!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice for someone considering taking this course is to not fall behind. Things that we learned in chapter 1 shows up in chapter 6, so it is important you are up to date and understand everything. If you are confused, there are many resources on campus that can help you. The supplemental instruction classes are a great way catch up on some things you don't quite understand. Just remember that they are there to help you succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I believe Harman Hill does a great job in teaching the material, however he does go fast.

    Course highlights:

    You should always be ready to learn something new. Make sure you go to discussion!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise you to devote more time.
