    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is very interactive in lecture. Although it can be difficult, it's interesting to see why things work the way they do. An experiment doesn't always go as expected, and physics will help you to figure out why. It's also interesting to see how physics can differ from math.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the experiments the professor performed in class. I learned how to calculate acceleration and velocity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend lots of time studying. Practice the problems. There are practice problems in the book that can be very helpful. Also the professor provides practice assignments online that will help with the homework and preparing for tests.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Chemistry is an amazing subject. It is very interesting and has a lot to offer.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of chemistry. The chemicals, their names, their physical and chemical properties.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way is to attend all classes, read all the notes and focus on the practice questions provided by the professor

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course solely on the fact that it really helps to develop a freshman's college skills right away. This course also moves at a fairly quick pace, which is useful because many other courses a freshman takes will not be as fast as this course, so they'll seem a lot easier in comparison. While it is a tougher course, it helps to prepare a new student quickly and efficiently without hurting their GPA.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course is definitely the lab portion. While it seems to be somewhat off-track from the actual course, it is invaluable in helping students, especially science majors, learn the basics of the laboratory and prepare them for their future courses, which become a lot less instructed and a lot more independent. The laboratory is also very useful in helping students to learn many different chemical solutions and substances and shows many different hands-on applications of chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main piece of advice for students would be to not underestimate this course, even though it is a general education class. While it is intended to be basic, the science department at OU can be very competitive and they like to see who is really devoted to their future careers right from the start. From my experience, chemistry has gotten easier as I have progressed through my classes, so starting very strong in this course and acquiring an A will only pay off indefinitely.
