    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very challenging. For students like myself, who love to see how far they can push themselves, this class is perfect. It is a very difficult course to endure and could be twelve months long depending on how the teacher chooses to plan the lessons. It requires much dedication and love for learning. I would recommend it to anyone who loves chemistry itself and wants to see how much they are capable of. I was definitely not expecting to do as well as I did in the class but I surprised myself and now I am far more confident in my abilities. I know I can handle anything thanks to AP Chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    I could go on about the process of oxidation or the difference between acids and bases but I am not going to. I did learn those things from this course and I will carry that knowledge with me for a long time, but I find that the most important lessons in this course are not in the curriculum. This course teaches a student a lot about his or herself. It shows the student that in life, there will be many opportunities to challenge yourself. You may doubt yourself and you may not be up for the challenge, but you should take the opportunity regardless. The worst thing that could happen is that you do not succeed. With that unsuccessful attempt, not only have you gained an experience, but you have also learned from your failure. I learned that regardless of your self doubts or your fears, you need to challenge yourself because, no matter what, you will gain something.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell the students considering it to definitely take it. The class is such a great opportunity to challenge yourself and learn about your abilities. In order to succeed in AP Chemistry, the student definitely needs to put in the time and the effort. The class is not easy and not doing the homework, not reading the book, or not studying will not allow you to succeed. There will be tears some nights because a problem is too hard or you do not understand a concept but that is okay. Do not doubt yourself and do not quit. Use your resources, find videos on the internet, call a peer, and do not give up. When it comes to the AP test in the spring, you need to study hard. I suggest you make a binder of all of the units and everything within each unit. This will allow organization of all the concepts you need to understand. I studied for about nine hours each day the month before the test. It sounds brutal, and it is, but I earned a four on the AP exam so I would say it is worth it. The class is such an amazing opportunity to challenge yourself so I would definitely advise the students to take it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is incredibly challenging, but also incredibly rewarding. Mr. Anderson is an amazing chemistry teacher, and the course as a whole really prepares you for the AP test and college chemistry in general. It also teaches good study habits, as the tests are hard but fair. Labs too are comprehensive and well thought out. This was my favorite class.

    Course highlights:

    My personal favorite section was nuclear chemistry, but this course teaches you everything, from mole stoichiometry to reaction prediction, to orbital interactions.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class all of the time. Missing important information can really come back and bite you during a test, and since much of chemistry builds on itself, it can affect the rest of your course. Also ask questions. If you ever have any types of doubts, clear them up with questions. If, like me, you are fascinated by chemistry, ask deeper questions on a concept. Get the most out of the course that you can and you will be rewarded.
