This class was tough.
This course is difficult but Prof Harper is good at what she does. It is important to pay attention during class in order to understand and keep up with the content. She gives you notes with blanks in it and it is easy to just fill it in and sit back and ignore her but the example problems really are imperative to doing well in the course.
The labs in this course were very challenging but fun. We learned about many in depth concepts of chemistry that built off of CHEM 103.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
After each class period do the book problems that pertain to the concepts learned that class period rather than waiting until the night before the homework is due and not remembering the concepts.
