    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because it is a challenge. This course was also great because the professor had great problems on the exams that helped me learn the material quickly.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed all of the course, the most significant thing I learned was balancing reactions and solving for the limiting reactant.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study hard, read the book, and take notes in lecture.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it is a fun class. The hard part is that you will spend most of the time alone studying and doing the online homework assignments. The labs are simple if you come prepared and classes are all lecture days.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course is how simple it is grade wise. the best part is how we have a chance to take the final and replace our lowest test score. If you have a good grade already, you can skip the final.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention during lectures. Print the powerpoints out and record the lectures if you don't pay attention. Listen to the lectures so you understand everything. Start the online homework early. The homework is always due the morning of the test, so finish it early so you understand the concepts and don't have to stay up to finish it.
