    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is not for the faint if heart. It requires a lot of work. There is a lot of intense material that has to be learned over the semester. The professors are not exactly helpful either. I would also recommend that you attend every single class period. It would be especially helpful if you made study groups for every test. Each homework assignment will take you any where from 2 hours to 8 hours.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly, I was just glad that this course was over. There was so much that we covered. We went through topics like stoichometry, thermal dynamics, quantum mechanics, light waves, elemental properties, and so, so much more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every chapter. Take hand written notes on every chapter. Go to every lecture. Do every homework assignment. Make study groups. Make flashcards. Draw pictures. Draw diagrams. Do the extra questions the teacher assigns. Get tutoring. DO absolutely everything.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Loved Pandey. She's the best teacher! Was lucky to have her for Chem 2 as well!

    Course highlights:

    Pandey is thorough and I was able to learn the in's and out of chemistry. I became fascinated with the subject even though it was a basic class. My favorite part was definitely the labs because I was able to put what we learned in class to use. When we did the forensic lab and were able to find finger prints using different chemicals I thought that was really cool.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. Chemistry is not an easy A. You must work hard to achieve perfect results.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Wang is an excellent professor that makes himself available to his students through office hours and email. Answers questions in class, will never make you feel dumb for inquiring, and genuinely cares about his students' success.

    Course highlights:

    The course is densely packed, you may miss important information essential to tests if you skip. Focused on the integral basics of chemistry - molecular structure, stoichiometry, electron configuration, chemical reactions. Uses basic algebra as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must pay attention to the lectures, take notes, and do all practice review materials he uploads for your use. They are very helpful and he makes them mirror the difficulty and topics covered on the tests. Also do all homework he assigns online, it is not overly time consuming and is helpful. Don't skip or be late, there are pre-chapter quizzes at the beginning of class that count at the start of every new chapter.
