    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I think the course is good if you are particularly interested in Chemistry and math and if you want to make sure you know your basics for the subject. The professor provides hands-on example based learning but the pace of the class is fast and the exams are rigorous. You need to know how to break down assignments in manageable portions and study ahead of time, using all resources (office hours, textbook, study guides, review of old quizzes or classwork or practice work, study groups, tutoring centers, etc.). You need to be really interested in Chemistry and study well for exams to do well in this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned and reviewed material of science some of which was actually pretty interesting. I also learned the importance of breaking down assignments and study time for tests into manageable chunks. Apart from this, I took a Chemistry assistance class where I made good friends and learned how to form effective study groups with those good friends.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take too many classes (over 4-5) if you want to give yourself enough time to study well for this class's exams. Go to lecture to hear the material be explained because the teacher tests on what he speaks on. Practice the material every day for at least 40 minutes at any point in the day. Seek help, either from tutoring center, office hours, study groups, etc. Use your resources and study ahead of time, breaking everything into manageable parts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Melaugh is a brilliant teacher who used repetition of working problems as a method to learn. He gives the class old exams as a method to prepare for upcoming tests which are incredibly helpful for students to understand what they need to study for.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that he will stop class to answer questions and that we had time to review for the final. Throughout the semester we learned the s, p, d, and f shells along with how to find the molecular and electron geometry of the molecules.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Professor Melaugh gives an end of chapter problems. Always do these in preparation for tests because he uses similar questions for his tests. It is very important to go to class for his class because without the notes the textbook won't make sense resulting in a poor grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides one with a great Introduction to General Chemistry and likely reviews concepts you learned in high school, but in more specific terms. Professor Forbes can be a bit confusing during class, as she sometimes rushes through her explanations, but if you go to office hours you will be fine.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included getting good test grades back after completing all of the online homework and also finishing the semester. I learned a lot about how chemistry underlies scientific principles, especially through the accompanying lab class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the online homework, study with friends, and go to office hours! If you do all of these, and do practice problems, you will succeed.
