Pretty easy, overall.
This class helps lay a great foundation for the basics of chemistry. Professor Pikaart does a great job of teaching the material in a variety of ways, including hands on learning, lectures, labs, and model making.
At first this class felt like a repeat of my high school's advanced chemistry course, however, as time went on we dug deeper into new areas of chemistry. I enjoyed the introduction to organic chemistry, as I often am able to make connections between this and things in my daily life.

Advice for students:
Do the book practice problems that are recommended. It is really helpful and a lot of the practice problems are similar to exam questions. Also keep up with the Sapling assignments. It's a lot easier to do a few questions at a time as we learn the material than to do back later and do them all right before the due date.
