    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chemistry is an in general difficult course; this professor makes it even harder. He understands the material easily, so he expects you to too. But this thought process, left the entire class dumbfounded and confused. Over half the class were forced to drop the class due to failing grades and the majority of those who stuck with it wished that they had and failed.

    Course highlights:

    Even though this class is the hardest class I have ever taken, I would say I learned quite a bit. This includes different chemical reactions, such as the redox reaction, precipitation, combustion, single replacement, and acid-base. I also learned how to balance chemical equations and name compounds when given a formula (or vice versa). This course taught me how to easily convert between different units of measurements. This course did a whole unit dedicated to electrons; in this unit we discussed how electrons fill orbitals, how valence electrons arrange themselves around an atom, and the sharing of electrons between molecules. You also get very accustomed to the Periodic Table and identifying number of protons, electrons, neutrons from any element on the chart.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give to other students would be to not take this course unless they absolutely had to. Even then, you should suspend all other responsibilities for the term, because to pass this class, you will need every minute you can spare. Also, pay little attention in class. I know this sounds crazy, but he makes the material so complicated and hard to understand that you don't want to even try to understand it. Trying to do so will make it harder for you to teach it to yourself later. You will need to go home and use both resources online and your textbook to learn the material. Tyler Dewitt on YouTube and Khan Academy practice will be lifesavers for you while taking this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because he teaches the concepts very thoroughly and is always has office hours and will work with you if you don't understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the most about solubility rules and molarity, molality equations through that semester.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would study every week, and if you don't understand something find him in his office hours to explain it to you.
