    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is absolutely necessary if you're in most science majors so you should definitely still take it. It isn't particularly difficult, the material is easy to follow, and the labs are interactive, but ultimately it isn't as exciting as other science courses and certain professors (like the one I had) make the class less worthwhile. So if you're looking to take this course just to fulfill a science credit or an elective, I would recommend either looking for another professor other than Professor Pinter or take a more exciting science because non-science majors probably won't find the material as interesting or engaging.

    Course highlights:

    This course goes over the basics of chemistry. It touches on chemical nomenclature, different types of chemical bonding and reactions, acid-base reactions, the properties of matter, basic chemistry calculations, the transfer of energy, the periodic table, and other basic chemical concepts. The real highlight of the course was the lab section. The lab featured many fun and interactive experiments that really helped me visualize and contextualize the material taught in lecture. Plus, watching chemical reactions was just really fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the online book if possible, it's cheaper and more accessible, especially since the homework is online too. Also, do not miss a lab! they are incredibly helpful to understanding the material and are vital to you're overall grade. Finally, read the text and take notes outside of class because the instructor does not cover everything in the lecture so if you rely on lectures alone, you'll have some serious holes in you're notes.
