    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you don't understand a topic you may have to do some outside research. This particular professor sometimes doesn't explain things in a way that you will understand so doing readings or doing outside research will help with that.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't remember much from my high school chemistry class and this class was a great introduction back into chemistry. We did a lot of review of what was covered in high school as well as many new topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to office hours to get as much help as possible so you will get the best grades and pay attention in class always because sometimes the professor will say important things that aren't written on the slides.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you like a challenging course I would recommend taking Chemistry. It would be extremely helpful if you redo problems as sometimes they could end up on tests. Also don't be afraid to ask for help!

    Course highlights:

    What really made me enjoy this course was using the basic problems to help me build up to the complicated problems. If you understand the concepts or the basics you will do fine in this course. If something is confusing ask for help!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you need is to practice, practice, practice the problems. I can not stress out how much it will be helpful if you practice. There are supplemental workshops that can help with this course. The workshops instructor are students that have taken the class and are in class with you during lecture.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Unless you know what you are doing in chemistry you don't what this fast-paced class. The labs are cool though.

    Course highlights:

    The labs are fun (if you have cool lab partners).

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study as much as you can. Don't think anything is too insignificant to retain.
