    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    A challenging lecture, if you are up for mostly teaching yourself the material..go for it!

    Course highlights:

    It developed my ability to self teach

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and get a tutor and make a ton of friends in lecture for long study sessions for exams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She does this flipped learning thing that is absolutely awful. We are expected to read the chapters and teach ourselves the material before we come to class and then we do worksheets and clicker questions during class. Asking questions doesnt help because the 'learning assistants' barely know what they are talking about and the professor herself just gives sarcastic responses. The tests are hard and often nothing like the practice tests. She is the worst professor and does nothing to teach.

    Course highlights:

    There were literally no highlights. I feel like I barely learned anything so will likely be repeating the course with a different professor even though I passed. The best part of this class was the lab.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just don't take it with Delgado. Half our class dropped it, and of the ones that stayed, half passed but just barely. Go to the north campus if you have to. If chemistry is important to your major, find a class not taught by Delgado.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher gives you the necessary materials to succeed in the class. She is not unfair and when she makes a mistake, she will apologize and accommodate fairly.

    Course highlights:

    I learn the basics of chemistry. Electron configuration, lewis structures, solubility, oxidation, reduction, acids, bases, naming system, and VSEPR theory were the main highlights of the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would always read the notes on the powerpoint along with the videos before class to familiarize yourself with the concepts. I would not read the book because the book will confuse you since Ana West does not teach by the book. I would also take your own notes on each general topic she discuss so you can organize the information learned. This will help prepare you for tests, quizzes, and exams.
