This class was tough.
This course is great for anyone who found success in honors chemistry. Most of the topics were previously covered, but you get to learn about them much more in depth. While some topics can be challenging, many of them are interrelated, so you can often use one chapter's material to help explain and understand new topics.
Mr. Weld is an amazing teacher. His lectures really helped me understand what was going on in the class. The best part about the course is definitely the labs. They can be difficult at times, but if you have a good lab table (which you get to pick), the challenges you overcome as a team make the work much more meaningful.

Advice for students:
The thing that helped me the most in this class was that I outlined topics of each chapter before that test. Not only did this help me understand the topics more conceptually, but I essentially ended up with a thorough summary of the textbook in fewer than 20 pages. If you understand the material conceptually, and can even visualize what's going on on the molecular level, the math isn't too difficult. Those outlines were also extremely helpful when it came to studying for the finals and the AP Exam as well.
