Background Knowledge Expected
Requires Lots of Research
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
As someone going into the field of genetics, I find almost all chemestry and biology courses pretty interesting. So while I may be a bit biased, this was no exception. Most people will find the course to be hard, but it provides a whole new way to look at the world and it puts into question a lot of what you thought you may have known about chemistry.
The highlight of the course was towards the end of the semester. We were learning a little bit about quantum theory and atoms. I've spent a year or so of my life interested in particle physics as a future and in that time, I did a lot of indepentent research. So while I knew what was being taught, applying the concepts in a mathematical sense gave the subject a different light.

Advice for students:
Study. To pass this course I suggest studying the material and memorizing it as you go along learning about it. I procrastinated until it was finals time and I spent a good 12 hours taking tests, doing problems, and making sure I was ready the few nights leading up to the exam.
