    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Seger is a legitimately brilliant man, and a very good tutor. However, in a large lecture setting he tends to get sidetracked, and oftentimes will try to fit an entire lesson into the last ten minutes of class.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Seger loved to do demonstrations, usually doing at least two or three per week. He has a good way of explaining things in a fun and engaging manner. There are many concepts that were explored in class that I still remember a year later, such as that nitrogen triiodide will explode if you point a green laser at it.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The biggest thing about this course is that the tests do not always directly reflect what happens in class. This is why you need to study your textbook, it is the only way you are going to do well. There are certain concepts that are too complex to be fully explained during class.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides the basic knowledge required before more difficult courses can be taken and understood. It provides a great range of chemistry knowledge that will be expanded upon in future courses.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, basic chemistry including molecular structure, bond types, thermodynamics, electron configuration, gas laws, types of reactions, and more are covered.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to ask questions when you need help. Your fellow students and professor are there to help you succeed and willing to help you. Make sure to get homework done early and study hard for the exams as they are tough.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a required course for me. Teaching was OK, nothing to write home about but not bad either.

    Course highlights:

    This class covered the basics of chemistry, including some lab work and also the theory of subatomic structures. Covered as well was the naming of chemicals, molecular structures.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make time for visiting office hours. Flashcards were very helpful to me in this course.
