    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very intensive on the reading. You need to do the majority of the reading and learning by yourself. Go to office hours and go to tutoring on campus and off. The lab is separated from the class. Make sure you have a calculator and do all of your homework and webassign. The tests are taken online, and you need to study about 4 hours or more a week on the subject.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher is willing to help you, but you need to put in quadruple the amount of work if you want to pass. The course was mainly math based, and that will help you in the long run when doing your homework. The first test is taken in class and the rest are online and taken with a proctor. Study your hardest.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this class with another hard class. You need to be willing to give all of your time to this class in order to succeed. Office hours and communication are a must when taking the course. If the teacher sees you are trying, he will be willing to help you!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a required class for many students majoring in Arts and Sciences. My best advice is to study, study, study. It is a weed out class and every point counts when trying to end with a passing grade.

    Course highlights:

    Towards the end you'll start understanding the course set up and the preparedness you'll need to pass the tests. It's simple chemistry but the tests are made by five different professors making it hard to adjust to different styled questions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study as often as possible. It doesn't hurt to do a bunch of hard practice problems because the ones on the tests and quizzes are much more complicated than the ones you'll be used to seeing. Also try and get a study group together to do practice problems with.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend CHEM 1211 if there is room for a physical science course, but if it is not there is no reason to take such a difficult class unless you are interested in chemistry or would like to know more about a certain area in chemistry, like concentration or reactions that take place in life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight was the professor, she tried to make chemistry an enjoyable subject, and she helped students to the best of her abilities. I learned a lot about gases, especially how ideally they can behave and how they deviate from ideal behavior, but most importantly, I learned about intermolcular forces. It was hard for me to grasp at the beginning, but it is a lot easier now.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need help, go to your professor's office hours, they'll always be willing to help. If you do not have time for such meetings, email them. Professors will be there for you, no matter what. If you are scared, do not be. Another thing to remember is that you should always go to lecture. Sometimes the book is hard to decipher, and the professor has a simplified or easier way of learning it. The professor may also have another method to go about things. However, the most important advice to remember is that no matter what, you should never stress out over anything to the point where you lose sleep and meals. Nothing is as important as you are. If you do not understand the material, give yourself a break from it, relax, and return to it a day or two later.
