    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because I left the course with an overall better understanding of chemistry that will stick with me throughout my career.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the professor, as well as the lab portion. The professor was very understanding and also answered questions thoroughly. The lab protein increased my knowledge of the subject.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must practice outside of class time to succeed in this course. There is no getting around it. If you put in about an hour of reading/practice per chapter, you will do well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course overall provided me with new information that I did not know but in a way that was not overwhelming.

    I learned quite a few new principles of chemistry that will help me in the future. The instructor did a very good job of explaining the concepts in a way that I understood.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to lecture everyday and do the problems that he gives you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Most people will have to take this course. Professor Abel is a great teacher. If you need chemistry, this is the class to take.

    Course highlights:

    You learn the basics of chemistry. You will need to know most of the elements on the periodic table. You learn lots of conversions involving grams and moles. It doesn't go too in depth

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just know that there is going to be homework. If you don't understand it, you can always email professor Abel. He is always good at responding, and will help you in his office too.
