    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class, as most science classes, is long but the teacher made it managable. He has a good sense of humor and has fun even if no one is paying attention. He made sure to have us write down what was important and nothing more. I personally did not use the book, you do need the lab book as that is required and has the sheets you need to fill out, but I didn't need the class book as he was clear and thorough with note taking.

    Course highlights:

    This class taught the basics and was very similar to high school chemistry. We did very little math and focused mostly on the "scientific" part of it. This caourse is good for people who don't really like math but may want to give chemistry a shot for a possible major.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure you have enough coffee and that you did the homework. There wasn't whole lot of take home work, usually just the lab sheets which to finish was just adding a few numbers together. Also if you get bored easily, his voice is rather monotone so be cautious.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you are interested in learning more about chemistry, and what it is about. The teacher was extremely smart, and informative.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are as follows: learning about how Chemistry applies to everyday life, learning about protons, neutrons, and electrons, and learning about electronegativity. There was a lot of math that was extremely complicated. This course required constant dedication, studying, and rehearsal techniques for memorization.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would provide to students considering this course is to prepare to study hard, and don't fall behind. Seek help immediately because there is a lot of material covered in this course. If you aren't good at math a student would need to brush up on their skills. A student must be mentally prepared to acquire new information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    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.

    Course highlights:

    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.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    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.
