This class was tough.
All in all, Chem 1212K is going to be a difficult class no matter what. For most students, this course is required for their majors/field of interest but if you are looking for a GPA booster, look elsewhere. There are a ton of resources to help you if you are struggling, such as SI sessions and office hours so take advantage if it helps you. If you are a self-learner, the textbook will be your best friend.
You need to have a solid foundation of concepts learned in Chem 1211K if you want to get an A in this class. Ultimately, a ton of information will be thrown at you and you will be expected to know and apply it come test day, but in the end it is extremely rewarding and you will come out of the class feeling very accomplished. Professor Kerr recognizes that Chem 1212K is not all smooth-sailing so she often times does curve exams depending on how the class did as a whole. She treats all her students equally and would not be one to make any exceptions for you.

Advice for students:
Make sure to do all the online quizzes; they are an easy grade booster. Work practice problems out of the textbook because they are similar to the questions you will see on the test. Simply reading the material is not enough if you cannot apply it so practice, practice, practice! This is the most important advice I can give because you need to be able to work out problems in a time-efficient manner as time will be your biggest enemy during exams.
