    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    At first, I, along with my other classmates, didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. We had heard that AP Chemistry was like nothing we had taken before, and it would be extremely difficult. The rumors were right, of course, but through it all, I have never met a teacher that was so devoted to the students and did everything she could to ensure the success of her students. She went beyond what was required for the course. By the time of the AP exam, it was just another test that we had already taken.

    Course highlights:

    Finally understanding reduction-oxidation reactions (redox) felt like we had just found extraterrestrial life. I felt so accomplished with myself. Additionally, grasping this concept helped me better understand other topics, such as acid and base reactions. For the first time, light bulbs were going off!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Having a study group is highly recommended. It's amazing how different people grasp different concepts and share what they know when you come together with your group!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you're willing to sacrifice everything else. This class requires attention even outside of school. You really need to be on top of your assignments if you want to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights from this course were definitely the labs and the reviews. Nothing helps you learn quite like hands-on experiments. It helps you understand not only what's going on, but why it's happening. I learned how the entire universe is made, literally. I learned about how different substances, when combined, can react unpredictably, but still be able to predict what will happen.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not, under any circumstances, put off work that could be done today. The biggest problem I faced in this course was that I either didn't put enough time into my work, or I put off my assignments until a few days before they were due. Doing two weeks worth of college-level chemistry problems the night before they are due will only set you up for failure. By doing this, you take away the opportunity for you to ask questions about certain problems you've tried, and you don't get enough time to let all the practice sink in.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Chemistry is a great class for anyone who exceeded in honors Chemistry or for anyone who enjoys the subject. The criteria is intriguing and the labs are super involved and fun.

    Course highlights:

    This course was my first non-history AP class and it differed greatly, but it helped prepare me for AP and college level math and science classes as well as honors physics. A lot of what we learned in the first unit of AP Chem showed up again in the first few units of Physics so I was able to fully grasp the concepts, even though physics is a harder subject for me to comprehend.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Honestly, do your assigned homework and ask a lot of questions. I know this probably sounds redundant because everyone says it but that's because it's true and it works.
