    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because Professor Zhao has PowerPoints that helps with understanding. There are also practice tests and answers for every midterm. The practice tests are very similar to actual tests, so they were very helpful. Be sure to go to Professor's office hours to clarify questions you don't understand. There is a curve at the end and if you argue with the Professor, she will give you points back.

    Course highlights:

    This course helps prepare you in college for all the other chemistry courses that you may or may not have to take. Even if you don't have to take any more chemistry courses, it really gives you a sense of what college is. You might just get hit on the head that college is not the same as high school, but the earlier you realize that, the better off you will be. Listen attentively in lecture, take notes, find your study method, and learn to time manage.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For success in this class, remember to always do the practice questions, workshop worksheets, and take advantage of the three by five note card you can use on the test. You should read the book if you have time and doing the test book questions will enhance your understanding. Reading the book basically helps you understand the conceptual questions while test book questions can give you more practice on calculation problems. Go to her office hours and ask her questions. She can clarify a lot of things for you. Her tests are pretty much similar to the workshop questions, practice tests, and sometimes test book problems. If you have access to more than one practice test from upper grades, that would be even better.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Samoshin makes the extra effort to make sure you understand what he is teaching you. He likes to ask questions and really gets you thinking before letting you have the answer easy.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was gas laws! Equations like the ideal gas law and the real gas law looked like it was impossible to memorize let alone apply to equations. However, with time we got through it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ready to do practice problems.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it for all STEM majors because the professor helps you develop a good problem solving technique that can be applied to any other course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of chemistry and the applications of chemistry in the real word.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the practice problems you can and actually read the book. Go to lecture no matter how boring because the professors will give you example questions similar to those on the test.
