Great Intro to the Subject
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The class was long, but the teacher was very good at explaining and he would often make jokes to lighten the mood (because he knew we were all tired). The labs were fun and he wasn't a hard grader.
I actually was able to memorize a good portion of the periodic table along with what over half of the elements of what the symbols stood for. It was more of being able to just understand chemistry and how it's everywhere rather than shoving the basics down your throat. I also learned some handy math skills (none of which I can recall at this moment of course! I still know them though don't worry). We didn't do a whole lot of math, but it was enough to get a better understanding of the subject.

Advice for students:
I personally did not need the book. You do need the lab book though, that's not an option. The first lesson actually is him telling you what kind of notes we should take in his class. It's nice because he doesn't make you write down everything. My suggesting is that as long as you're able to listen and stay seated for long periods of time, you should be fine in this class.
