    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jack Eichler is an excellent professor who is really passionate about the subject and teaches in a way that makes complicated concepts seem really simple. His exams are not that difficult and there are no surprises on them. The class itself was interesting (I am a biochem major) and there was not too much homework. You have to go to class for the clicker points. I definitely recommend choosing this professor over any others.

    Course highlights:

    You learn really basic chemistry concepts. Nothing is extremely difficult as it is a beginning chemistry course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise you to go to class because the clicker points can really help or hurt you. Do the homework because it really helps you understand the concepts. Put in a little work for this class everyday and you will do well.

    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.
