    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is difficult but it is doable. There is a lot to memorize so if you aren't good at memorization, I would suggest using a lot of note cards. If you will be taking this course I would also recommend taking chemistry in high school. I personally learned a lot from my high school chemistry and was able to apply knowledge from that class to the college class. If you are already out of high school, I would only recommend taking this class knowing that you will make enough time to study.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is that there is new information to learn everyday. I learned many new formulas for temperature, pressure, acids and bases and much more. I was also able to apply my knowledge about the elements to some real life situations in my current job.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In this class, there needs to be a lot of study time. I would suggest note cards to memorize formulas and ask questions when you don't understand a topic. Getting clarification from the teacher is also a great way to learn if you don't understand a topic.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chemistry is a very hard course to begin with and professor Saha will not move forward with the material, unless she is sure that students understand it! She gives plenty of examples for the questions and as long as you study those and worksheets you will do good in her class!

    Course highlights:

    Professor Ritu Saha is a true teacher. She makes sure that everything is well explained. The labs are very easy points. I learned much more than I anticipated in her course!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study all of worksheets and notes and you will do very well in her class. The tests are very similar to the examples she gives in class which helps most of the class is get A's and B's.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Personally, I really enjoyed the class. This being said, I know many of his students did not. Sarkar is very proud of what he does, and, as a result, he expects much from his students. However, if you are going into chemistry, he is a fantastic teacher with quite a bit of influence to help his student obtain entry level jobs.

    Course highlights:

    The experiments and lab were the best part. They are also somewhat challenging, so everyone should be very exact with their measurements. As for what I learned, there is too much to write. But if you apply yourself, you'll begin to have to slowly have the basics of chemistry ingrained into your mind.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice is to do chapter reviews in the book weekly for his tests and quizzes. These can be even more important than actually reading the text and gives quite a bit of needed practice.
