Many Small Assignments
This class was tough.
I would recommend it to those who are good at staying on top of things and are also good at time keeping. Deadlines are a biggie in this course. While the work it demands can seem a lot, it is extremely fun to learn about big organic compounds, what elements with others causes what; you're basically learning exactly how things work in every type of environment.
The best part of the course overall, is the fact that everything is interactive. Granted we had to write lab reports every week, but such a harsh deadline was compensated by the experiments we did for those labs- from making ice cream out of liquid nitrogen, to setting things on fire, to exploding pumpkins on halloween, I had a really great time in the class. I learned quite a lot; a lot, meaning I can't necessarily write all of it down other wise it would take pages and pages of words. However some highlights of the class include learning about how fireworks work and why we're able to make different colors, as well as learning about how we can determine what elements are in a substance just by precipitating, dissolving, and re-precipitating our solution with acids and bases.

Advice for students:
Stay on top of everything. Again, deadlines are extremely important and staying on time is huge. One of the most important things in this course, is don't be afraid to ask the teacher anything!! Getting lost in part of the course will only result in a dominoes of confusion.
