    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class for people who already struggle in class I barely scrapped out an A and I usually don't have a lot of trouble. On one of her tests, I studied for 4 hours and only made a B-. A lot of students were far worse off than me, most didn't even pass.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to teach myself because she likes to teach by using definitions, but the definitions have words in them you need to define. Also, I learned that sometimes you have to put in quite a few hours.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If there is no other option, then take the course otherwise don't! If you do, prepare to study all of your notes and make lots of acronyms when required to memorize, especially if you have to take more chemistry.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Roberson is very well educated in the chemistry department. He loves helping his students and he is very willing to spend extra time helping the student understand. Chemistry isn't the easiest subject but Roberson makes it fun and easier to understand. The best Chem instructor I've ever had. Has been teaching for over 40 years, very smart man.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many short cuts to the algebraic problems dealing with chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes,come to class, and pay attention and you should do very well.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you plan on pursuing a career in science then this class is a must take. The class is hard but it's mostly equations so if you're bad with math I would recommend taking advantage of any tutoring you have available.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that chemistry is not a career path I want.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. And when you're done study some more.
