    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is not for those who are not willing to put in the work. The syllabus informs the students that for every house spend in the classroom, you will spent three hours outside of the classroom studying. I have never read something so true. Even if you do not space out your studying and procrastinate, you will spend a lot out time outside of class either doing homework, lab, or studying. I was fortunate enough to have an on-campus tutor in the Academic Resource Center when I was taking it and that helped me a lot. Unfortunately, the tutor left to get her PhD so I wish everyone luck. Professor Ors is very helpful in his office hours; I visited him mulitple times. There was even one time where a group of us--I'd estimate about ten to twelve--students went into his office the da before the second exam involving titrations and asked him to help us. He gladly took us to an empty classroom and walked us through the steps an additional time.

    Course highlights:

    This class truly tested my knowledge in general chemistry. While I was taking the course I did struggle every now and then, but in hind-sight, this class is very rewarding. It feels good to look over your shoulder and see you have completed and passed a course like this one. It's not easy, but it's not impossible.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, study the PowerPoint slides, visit the professor during his office hours, ask questions when you do not understand, and do not procrastinate! I have also found the most helpful thing to do is get a group of people you can study with or ask questions with. Most likely, if you don't get something, someone else might and then you both get more experience on the topic because you are able to understand it and the other person is able to understand it more thoroughly by teaching it!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Mrs. Gambino for general chemistry 2 because she made the course fun and enjoyable!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of concepts that helped me move onto Organic Chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You should study hard and make sure you understand the concepts.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While certainly not easy, those who are willing to put the effort into this class will learn a lot of great information about chemistry. Primarily, the big struggle in this course is that unlike Gen. Chem 1 (CHM 2045), the majority of the material in this course was rather new.

    Course highlights:

    Sometimes if you want to nail down a concept you'll have to go out of your way to study it yourself. There was one particular time when I struggled with titration calculations so I watched the Khan Academy videos for them and practiced the calculations every day for the rest of that week and eventually I figured it out!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I think one of the most important things I took away from Gen. Chem. 2 is that it's a course that really helps people figure out whether they want to enter a field related to chemistry. As a result, it isn't for everyone. I know students who claimed that they didn't learn a thing in Gen. Chem. 2, but I also others who learned a lot and are studying to become chemists now. This class really helps you gauge your interest in the subject. On a side note, unlike Gen. Chem. 1, the lab component (CHM2046L) will take up the majority of the allotted time (3 hours) far more often; don't expect to be released early unless you can do your experiments quickly. Also, do not take this course with Calculus 2 (MAC 2312) at the same time unless you have a good time management system and consistent large chunks of time during which you can complete the work for both of the classes.
