Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I took this class in order to satisfy my upper chemistry course requirement for my Biomedical Science degree. Overall, this lecture and lab was fairly easy as long as effort was put into the course. Dr. Malik was a great professor that took time to make sure all topics were thoroughly explained and the class was fair in its distribution of points that made up the grades. There were 3000 points to be earned in the course with 4 exams worth 400 points each, 5 quizzes worth 50 points each, 10 labs worth 100 each, and attendance worth 150 points. If you performed well in Chemistry I and II and need an upper level chemistry course that is not too difficult and builds your knowledge for other chemistry courses, this is the course for you.
The beginning of this course is a more in depth look at some topics studied in Chemistry I and Chemistry II such as finding moles, molarity, and other simple subjects that require calculation. The lab helped gain experience in using analytical methods for chemistry that could be used in other subjects and explained the importance of analytical chemistry in modern science and industry.

Advice for students:
The best advice for this class is just to always attend class, study the slides (textbook is not necessary), and do the practice problems for the slide. For the lab, just do the pre-lab and post-lab according to the rubric and you will receive all points.
