    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There were a lot of practice problems given but the professor did not seem to care much on whether or not you learned.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about molecular structures and acids and bases.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do any practice problems that are given. Make sure you do your own reading and not just what is given in class.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's required. Lavelle is pretty dry but overall a rad person. He cracks a lot of jokes. I would definitely get the course reader, because it is an absolute life saver!

    Course highlights:

    You learn just basic chemistry. It is all review from high school chem. If you were in AP Chem, it is an absolute piece of cake. Make sure you read the book.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    BUY THE COURSE READER! This is a must. Also, read the chapter before lecture because then you'll be able to follow it pretty easily. AND go to your discussion section, because sometime the TAs give our hints about the test.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's not really a class to "recommend" per se; it's a prerequisite class for the majority of the life science majors, so chances are you'll have to take whether you want to or not. That being said, if you're not comfortable with self-studying and you expect your professor to help you as much as possible, I wouldn't recommend this class. Scerri is clearly well-versed in his area of study, but his teaching skills are lackluster at best. Be prepared for rambling lectures and exams that cover information not included in said lectures.

    Course highlights:

    His explanations of molecular theory and the patterns of the atomic table were very interesting, I'll give him that. He uses metaphors and visual models very well in explaining these particularly abstract and frankly difficult concepts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook at least a little bit everyday; a lot of questions on his exams are about information directly from the textbook and can't be found in his lectures and powerslides alone. Get together with other students to study so you can really understand all the conceptual information as well; I found that different people's perspectives were often extremely helpful at getting me to understand things by looking at them in a new light. Go to office hours as well; though it will almost never be one-on-one, Scerri tends to go a lot more in-depth during these sessions.
