    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course was a perfect introductory course, however the professor was a little hard to understand, but the topics were straight forward when practiced enough.

    Course highlights:

    The course outlines the very basics of general chemistry, mostly nomenclature (naming compounds), balancing chemical equations and stoichometry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do your homework, it'll help a lot with the concepts.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course due to the minimal amount of work that is required compared to other Chemistry 121 classes. The professor goes quickly over explaining the material and his lecture notes, but any student willing to put in the time and effort can pass this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be how much the material challenges the students. Not only is Chemistry in general an extremely difficult subject, but the professor's quick pace will intrigue students to see what they are made of. A main highlight of General Chemistry would be learning the molecular geometries of compounds. This new material introduced gives molecules a three dimensional perspective instead of just the plain two dimensional.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students entering this course would be to expect putting time and effort for the grade. Although the professor does not explain the material too well, the information is not impossible to learn. It will take setting time aside to study and focus for the exams. He does provide practice exams and concepts to expect on the tests that will help tremendously! For the homework, YouTube videos and Yahoo Answers will save your life.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking this course with Dr. Munro. She does not used traditional powerpoint lectures, but rather writes details notes on the boards for students to follow along. This helps tremendously as the students do not rush to write everything down.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a good amount of knowledge on the multiple ways to read and interpret the periodic table and its trends that will help me in my future chemistry classes especially because she made it easy to remember.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend forming a study group with a few peers and to get together the week before a test to learn from each other and help teach each other. Also, I would recommend going to the weekly PASS sessions.
