    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it provided me with more option to my major.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different substances and materials, how they bond and relationships. I learned from the exercises of the lab and experimentation. For example, identifying natural phenomenas like radioactivity in the earth.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is very beneficial because chemistry is central science that connects other sciences to each other.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is definitely something I would recommend because it teaches a great deal of important concepts both for school and life. However, be prepared to marry your chemistry textbook for however many years that you plan to take this course. Both normal and AP chemistry are a mix of labs and book work where you will be working with dangerous chemicals, expensive equipment, and interesting topics.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was definitely the labs that we did. It took about two days to prepare for each lab and two to three hours to complete each one; however consistently doing these labs every two weeks is what really helped me learn the material. The hands on experience with the equipment and procedures as well as the write up that followed helped develop my critical thinking skills and developed my ability in handling chemicals. Since all of our labs were done with partners, it was good practice to learn how to work with other people in high stress environments. I also learned that study groups are key when it comes to studying difficult material, because everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses in a subject. In a study groups, everyone pools their knowledge together and it's also a great way to bond with your classmates. Another thing I learned was the importance of balancing diligence and rest. When I catch myself staring at my problem blankly for more than 15 minutes, it usually means that I'm exhausted. After taking a nice long nap, I would almost always be able to finish the problem, and if not then next step would be asking my study group.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly recommend finding a study group with people that you know will actually care about the course. Just know that the first few times you meet, it will usually consist of you guys talking or getting distracted. However, after the group gets to know each other a little better and finds their groove, you'll start getting a lot of work done. Also, getting a separate review book or doing extra problems as well as actually reading the textbook will help a great deal with understanding the material. It's also important that you to try to get a decent amount of sleep. It would be amazing if you could get those 9 hours in; however, I don't know anyone who took the course with me who managed that. If you deprive yourself of your beauty sleep though, it will be much harder to absorb new information. Let naps become your new best friend because it helps you recharge pretty quickly if you're feeling zombie-like. One last thing is to memorize your ions, naming rules, significant figure rules, and prefixes. Everything chemistry related becomes so much easier and since you use this information in almost every chapter, what you get out of it is definitely worth the few hours you put in.
