    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    He's my absolute favorite! His midterms are super easy (got an A on both), just do the practice exams and you should be set!

    Course highlights:

    Don't skip class even though the powerpoint is online. His lecture style is very entertaining, and he often brings in demos that relate to the content.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To do well in the class, do the practice tests that he provides! They are very similar to the actual tests. Overall, he's a great professor and makes chem enjoyable for his students.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great professor, super fair. First 2 chapters are pretty challenging, but the last 4 are very simple. He recycles lots of questions so make sure you do his practice exams, and extra problems as well as review his top hat questions

    Course highlights:

    Weiss was very clear about what was going to be on the tests. It was based off of the homework and practice midterms. If you understand those, you will do well on the tests.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    tests straightforward, but include ALL your work and units on exams, his TAs are typically difficult on grading because he wants ALL the work, homeworks super easy its just webassign
