This class was tough.
The course can be quite difficult starting into, but depending on your teacher, if they are willing to help and explained everything clearly it should be good for you. I am more of a biology person and hated chemistry ever since we started learning about the subject though this course was actually fun for me and I fairly enjoyed it.
The course is fast paced, so even if you do get help you need to catch on quickly. It involves drawing molecules and looking at molecules and naming them (organic chemistry). How the nature of attractive forces that exist between particles in a substance determines the properties and limits the uses of that substance. How energy changes and rates of reaction can be described quantitatively. Sometimes you will also evaluate the societal and environmental costs and benefits of technologies that transform energy. You will also assess the significant implications of controlling and applying oxidation and reduction reactions for industry, health and safety, and the environment, etc. There is a lot to learn in this class.

Advice for students:
If or when you take this course, it is always best if you think you are going to have trouble to ask for help, it is best not to rush at the end of the semester in a course like this. I find also knowing who is might be teaching you would best prepare yourself for the help you may need and where else you can find it.
