    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a very challenging hybrid course. I was terrified to take it, honestly, but Jackie is an incredible teacher. She explains everything thoroughly and patiently.

    Course highlights:

    I finally succeeded in chemistry, after doubting myself and fearing this course for years. I learned that anybody can master general chemistry if they're willing to put in the time and effort.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Allot plenty of time outside of class to study. Use all of the online study tools Jackie gives you and over explain everything on your homework assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Yoshi is a very fair grader and loves to give lots of insight as to why the learning material is useful and interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The labs are fun and easy to unserstand, with lab reports that don't focus on trivial details, but rather big-picture concepts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up on the online homework early! It's tedious and much harder than the tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is disorganized and the course has a huge workload. The reason I gave it two stars was because some people in my class did like her teaching style.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to juggle a ton of work, meet deadlines, and overcome obstacles.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Only take this course or just don't take this course and take it with a different instructor
