    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Waddell is an incredible mentor/teacher. She thoroughly goes over all information, and when asked, she explains the content even deeper. I believe she can simplify any type of information. Also, she doesn't ask students participate in class, so if you're one of those students who dislike speaking infront of people, this is the class for you!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to study information thoroughly, instead of skimming the chapters. Her test do not only compose of calculations, but they also compose of definitions, substance characteristics, and short answer. The best thing about this course was that attendance did not count as apart of the grade. However, attending class can be beneficial because she goes over test and quiz material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and take notes on all chapters. Remember to read to understand, instead of reading just because you have to. Before taking the test, always skim all the chapters that will be covered and look over homework problems. A lot of the homework problems are always on her tests, except they have different numbers of course. Also, if you're not doing well with understanding the chapters, attend class!

    Course Overview:

    If you have to take chemistry during your college career, I strongly recommend you to take Dr. Willie Darby. She's a great chemistry professor and she teaches her students how to be better versions of themselves.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what ionic and covalent bonds are, how to calculate moles, also the classifications of each element on the periodic table.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    OFFICE HOURS! Build a relationship with Dr. Darby. STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! As long as you're committed to do well in the class, Dr. Darby will do everything she can to help you pass the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Fundamentally, chemistry entails lots of math as well as various concepts (that must be recognized to understand this science as a whole). With that said, I highly recommend Dr. Willie Darby (professor at Hampton University) because of her strategic and coherent way of explaining and ultimately teaching this domain of science altogether. Dr. Darby articulates and structurally relays the information in her respective courses so effectively that you're bound to learn something from her class (even if chemistry does not come naturally to you). To conclude, I recommend this professor because of her simple, yet potent way of teaching this respective field.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included that of subatomic particles as well as the different chemical interactions that occur in everyday life. In a fundamental perspective, I learned that different aspects of chemistry are empirical in nature. For instance, stoichiometry is evident in cooking (determining how much product can be made with respect to the given material), determining whether a liquid is acidic or basic involves pH, and measuring the salt concentration present in water involves salinity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn the early fundamental concepts in chemistry so you can have a solidified understanding of how ideas are interconnected. In other words, acknowledging earlier topics leads to a deeper understanding of how future topics incorporate previous material. For example, learning the various elements and categories in the periodic table will develop future reasoning towards which elements may form ionic/covalent bonds.
