    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course was thorough, engaging and accessible even for non-Engineering/Science majors. Professor Kim Stasciewicz is the best Chemistry teacher I have had and any inability to understand material is likely due to a lack of capacity rather than a defect in the presentation of material.

    Course highlights:

    Labs were probably the most fun part of this course, though they were also the mos time-intensive part as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to succeed in this course you will need to put in the work, there is no way around it. With that in mind here are a few tips: 1. DO THE HOMEWORK!!!-though homework accounts for less than 10% of the final grade-it (and attending class) will determine how well you understand the material and how you do on the tests (which are 36% of the final grade). 2. Prepare for labs WELL in advance. Every lab period (once a week) you will need to not only turn in the experiment summary for the preceding week's lab, but will also need to have your lab notebook prepared for that session's experiment. If your notebook is not prepared you will be asked to leave and labs cannot be made up (generally). You also need to receive a "D" or better in the lab portion to pass the class. 3. USE THE POSTED PRACTICE EXAMS TO STUDY!!!-they are instrumental in judging how prepared you are. Sit down and take the practice exam (I would also time yourself to see how long you take-tests are generally one 1.5 hours long) Professor Stasciewicz is the best Chem professor you could hope for. If you need to take CHE111 or are just interested-her class is a must.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course was very thorough and labs were interesting and directly tied to the material. It was a bit slow-paced for me, and the homework is a bit excessive, but overall I learned a lot about chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    We covered the first ten chapters of the eleventh edition of "Chemistry: The Central Science", which included stoichiometry, atomic structure, and redox reactions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't procrastinate. And make sure you study for your tests.
