    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is extremely difficult at first. I thought chemistry would be somewhat easy since everyone seemed to take it.

    Course highlights:

    This class really prepares you for more science classes down the road. Chemistry is the basis of essentially everything, so taking the class early in my high school career helped out a lot.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it early! Don't wait until your junior or senior year. Most science classes after chemistry will require you to know something about it!

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone who enjoyed their first year chemistry class, or anyone who plans on studying any engineering, mathematics, science, or technology classes in their next level of education. It is first year chemistry, but instead of staying on the surface of all the topics, you dive into depth.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course are the labs, and the mind blowing facts that you acquire during the course. The labs do require lab reports, and some of those lab reports are rigorous and require a lot of work. But the labs themselves are fun to do, especially the lab that the teacher makes you do completely without his help. Trust me, it is a challenging experience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To any students considering this course, make sure that you did well in your first year chemistry class. You need to have a basic understanding of all the concepts learned because they do not go away. The AP test is the longest AP test out of all of them, and it is also labeled the most difficult. You must give this class time and effort because it is not an "easy A".

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend AP Chemistry if you are going to major in the science fields in college that require Chemistry as a class so you can receive that credit earlier and you won't have to take it in college. It is a very difficult course, but everyone is different, so it may be easier for some people more so than others. ACP Chemistry is easier though and I would recommend it. If you enjoy chemistry and/or are majoring in a field that requires Chemistry , I would recommend AP Chemistry, but if you don't like Chemistry and you're not majoring in a chemistry required field, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot from AP Chemistry including thermodynamics- entropy (the amount of disorder in a reaction), enthalpy (how much energy is formed or released in a reaction), and Gibbs Free Energy (if a reaction is spontaneous or not), galvanic cells, how to determine elements, percent composition (the amount of an element in a compound in percentage), ionization energies (the amount of energy it takes to strip the valence electrons away from an element), and many other subjects.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice from me to pass this class, is always read the regular AP Chemistry book carefully, keep the AP Chemistry Review book by your side, and go to the morning review sessions and ask the teacher for help if you need it.
