    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It will not only challenge you to the limits of your academic ability but will also teach you to think at higher levels. You will be forced to think and apply concepts to new situations, and even derive your own theories from application. This is excellent preparation for the higher levels of thinking required in college.

    Course highlights:

    The major concepts revolve around stoichiometry,Properties of elements, Acid-base reactions, Rate reactions, and Solubility.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get Princeton Review. I hear that is good.Or if you want additional reading that delves deeper than just AP, I would recommend reading/working through Atkins' Chemical Principles.The one concern about AP Chemistry I have heard a lot is that it seems overwhelming. And it is, because it is required for students to know (a little of) everything in this broad subject. But in my experience, overestimating the difficulty of AP Chemistry (daunting, not difficult) can lead to some failure...at my previous high school, the first test of the year is infamous for people to get F's (which is pretty much unheard of at my school as well...besides this class). Also, the tests are curved generously, and a F-range grade = 30% raw score. However, it was just a review of the all-so-loved concept of stoichiometry. In fact, two people (out of 44 students, a record number more than double the number who normally take the class) got 99% on the first test.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because this class prepares you very well for any future Chemistry classes that you intend to take in college. The coursework reflects that of an actual college class and gives you a preview of what a college level class will be like.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many underlying concepts that explain why certain things occur in Chemistry. The labs emulate those conducted in an actual college class, helping to prepare you for college Chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important thing to remember is to not give up. There are certain concepts that may prove to be very difficult, but as long as you are willing to work hard, you will be able to succeed.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because its teaches the fundamentals and applications of chemistry. Although the course may be difficult, it is filled with exciting labs and challenges that make the course interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the labs. I had the opportunity to experiment with chemicals and lab equipment and learned chemistry through the numerous reactions. Labs such as the 12 Colors Solutions Lab were fun and also taught me about how ions can react with each other and change colors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To do well in this course, you have to pre-lab. Pre-lab means to prepare the notes, materials, and equipment before the lab to save time and allow more understanding of the lab. This also involves setting up the lab notebook to be ready to record lab data.
