This class was tough.
Mr. Beck is a hard teacher, but you learn a lot in his class. Studying the material is key, especially the elements on the periodic table. Powering through the course is a good way to make it through the class.
The labs were only one of the few things in the class that made it fun, so enjoy them. Find a good lab partner that you can at least stand, and you only get as much as you get into it.

Advice for students:
If you are able to put in the hours, give this class a try. It is a challenge at first, but second semester is quite easier.
