    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Fisher breathes Chemistry, and she will stand on her head to help you understand the magic that is the physical world. She held convenient office hours twice a week and offered extra credit just for being involved. If you worked hard in the class and put in the effort, she would meet you where you were.

    Course highlights:

    The QA lab was terrifying and fantastically rewarding. Figuring out your own steps to solve a chemistry problem was unlike anything I had done before. We used different resources, and even figured out solutions to unanticipated problems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find a group to study with and don't put it off. And don't be scared, the material is dense, it comes at you quickly, and it feels like you're at the end of the semester when it suddenly clicks. But it's totally worth it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Abbas truly cares about his students. He is very clear on the class lay out and what he expects from his students throughout the year. Professor Abbas is very well organized, always open to questions, and will make sure that you understand the material even if it means that he has to repeat himself in several different ways but the thing that I admired the most is that he has faith in his students. He will always encourage with positive reinforcement and remind each student that they always have the opportunity to do better. I haven't seen this quality in many teachers and I think that it is extremely important because many students tend to lose faith in themselves when they are in rough situations in life and are struggling in school.

    Course highlights:

    I have taken other chemistry classes prior to this (Chem 108, and Chem 110) and his class was the first one that made me fall in love with Chemistry. We learned everything about elements, reactions , and processes that occur constantly in our daily lives. My favorite part about the class was learning how to calculate chemical reactions that apply to our daily lives. For example Calculating free energy, entropy , and enthalpy changes in chemical reactions.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are going to take this i would recommend that you follow the instructions of Professor Abbas on how to study for the class because its exactly how he says it will be. Make sure to take ALL notes from his lecture because everything he teaches in lecture will be on the test. He is also very strict with lab reports so make sure that you understand the procedures and write everything down in the correct format . Most of this class consists of calculation problems so make sure that you are constantly practicing problems from the book.
