    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although Maleckar is probably the hardest Chem 2 professor, the material is vital to your science-related major. You'll have to teach yourself a lot of the information (you can't just look over the partial notes). Do the online courses multiple times to master the material, and definitely make sure you can do problems from anything on the notes.

    Course highlights:

    The partial notes were a nice start to a study guide, and her lectures were pretty easy to follow.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to fail some tests and to not let that bother you. You definitely can't fall behind, so you have to put a lot of time into this course. Keep all of your materials to study for each exam.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, as it is a prerequisite for O Chem and probably required for many people going to grad school, but I would not recommend taking Dr. Ward. She cancelled almost one class a week, so we were very behind the other Chem 2 courses and we ended up switching to a different professor in the last two weeks of class. She made the course harder by incorporating more analytical chemistry into her problems than what was expected in a normal General Chem 2 class. I liked Chem 2 better than Chem 1, however because it is more math and application based than theory.

    Course highlights:

    I gained problem solving skills by being able to pick apart a wordy question and find what information was actually useful in solving the problem. Critical thinking skills are put to the test in figuring out how to go about solving a lengthy math problem. Some of the major topics covered in this class were chemical equilibrium, thermochemistry, electrochemistry, acids and bases, spectroscopy, and kinetics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For Dr. Ward especially, DO THE PRACTICE PROBLEMS. There are tough problems in this class, but they mainly all fall into a few categories of questions, if you know what you are doing and are able to recognize what type of problem it is through the excess fluff they throw into questions to make them harder, you will be okay. The only thing to do for this class is to practice, practice, practice and make solving problems come as second nature. The tests were mainly 15 multiple choice questions with 4 open ended responses, but her math problems take up an entire page and a good 8 minutes each to solve if you are mediocre at solving them, so be keen on managing your time on tests and practice enough so you know exactly where to start when you read the question to be more efficient.
