    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Bad news: A lot of work. 1) Prelectures are required, you must watch a video and answer online questions or else you may not get points for it AND clicker questions. 2) Moodle masteries quizzes: you need to complete it before the test. At least it has no hard due date, just finish it before tests. 3) home works in Webassign.com : You must purchase to access, which I think is bs. 4) Notebooks: it's back to elementary where teachers check to see if you have taken notes on prelectures and Moodle masteries! Good news: if you did all the work the right way as opposed to the easy way, then studying is unnecessary. In fact, I got 100% on 2nd, 4th, and final tests just by doing all the Moodle masteries the day of the tests without studying the night before!

    Course highlights:

    1) entropy of the universe can only stay the same or increase. Spontaneity of any chemical process depends on TOTAL entropy, not the entropy of the system. 2) conservation of energy: remember that. 3) Acids increase H+ conc in water, donates H+ in chem reaction, or accepts electrons. Bases increase HO- conc in water, accepts H+ in chem reaction, or donates electron. 4) ICE tables.( stands for Initial Change Equilibrium table). It's tedious as heck. If you see the pattern, exploit it and create a shortcut. Otherwise, you'd be stuck doing ice tables on every chem reaction that asks about equilibrium. 5) kinetics: rate of reactions. Tips: memorize the equations and learn how to use them, then you'll be fine. Ex. 2A + B----> C. If C appears 3 Molarity/sec, how fast do A disappear? Answer: 6. Solution: 1/2XA=3C. Solve for X 7) Titration and buffers: similar to acids and bases, use ICE tables. Unless of course you noticed the pattern I was talking about and found a shortcut. Good luck! Although new, the concepts aren't hard to understand, and math is moderately challenging to memorize and use.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you did the work the right way instead of the easy way, you'll be fine! Also, you have to be already good at stochiometry, know electronegativity, and how to balance chem equations.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a great course to take for my major and I did very proficient in the area. Professor White taught us the bases of chemistry that we needed to know, and I now feel confident.

    Course highlights:

    I did very well in stoichiometry as well and the limiting and excess reactants. I enjoyed the course, did very well in the course, and did exceptional during the final exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest to study very well for this class. Chemistry is not an easy subject to grasp very quickly. Take your time to understand what you are doing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Hopkins truly cares about his students and will go the extra mile to help you get the grade you desire if you put in the work necessary. At times the work load could me heavy but it allows you to learn the material through trial and error.

    Course highlights:

    Hopkins has a great sense of humor and makes learning fun. I learned a lot in the course and felt very prepared for all tests.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your homework in advance. Do not wait until the last minute.
