    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone who wants to invest in chemistry, it's a great introductory course. The professor was excellent in most regards, but with the time constraints she ended up rushing the class near the end of the semester and lost most students in the midst of a final rush.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed every chapter of the course aside from the final 3 weeks, the cramming she pressed on the students and holes in between understanding were rather bothersome.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's really easy to get lost if you don't attend class, don't read through the book, and don't take the homework seriously. While attendance may seem optional, missing out on course material being explained by someone who understands it better than you can be fatal. Homework may just be busy work, but if you invest the time to understand the how and why, it will aid you in the long run of understanding the big picture.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very tough course if you don't do the readings and homeworks. You have to ask questions and get it right away or you will ultimately be lost.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me more a little more chemistry than a high school course and a lot more math than I was expecting. It's all about knowing which formulas to use when and how and what to convert to make the problems work. Also a lot of orbital mesmorization.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take this course unless you are fully prepared to study every night for it and ask questions. If you don't study or ask for help accordingly you won't pass this course. Also attendance is key and is a part of your grade.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Excellent professor makes the class a breeze. The material you cover is difficult, but Dr. Greene makes it seems easy with how she teaches.

    Course highlights:

    Basic Chemistry, Lewis Structures, how to use conversion factors, and dealing with moles.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make are you show up to class. Those iClicker points are very helpful and the questions actually help reinforce what you just learned.
