This class was tough.
Honors Chemistry, for me, was a nightmare. Not because it was poorly taught, but because science isn't and will never be my strength. The class consists of several labs that must be done to a T to the teacher's liking, tests that truly do test one's intelligence on the material covered in class, and a rigorous variety of homework - your typical honors level course. Going into this class, I was expecting it to be much easier than it was, coming from honors biology, which I took my sophomore year and found surprisingly easy.
Although difficult, honors chemistry was full of interesting labs. The actual execution of the labs was my favorite part, but the recording and typing of them was my least favorite. There was a wide variety of labs we did throughout the year, all of them different and fascinating. I never found myself uninterested or not engaged in what we were doing in a lab.

Advice for students:
My number one tip would be to not come into this class thinking you can get by doing the bare minimum. It will not go unnoticed. It is vital to do the homework and study for the tests. I was always one of those students that didn't have to study for something to do "ok", but for honors chemistry, I definitely recommend you study as much as you can.
