    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chemistry is hard in general. This course proves that. You can't skip your homework or you'll fail the class because all the exam questions are in the homework.

    Course highlights:

    The only I like about Chem 115 is the lab. I love lab because I like experimenting on different chemicals and acting like a chemists.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, and study some more. Chemistry is all about calculations and long formulas, so you have to study them to know them for exams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is fast paced and covers a lot of material but Professor Ely was a huge source of information. She broke down each concept in easy to follow power point slides and was always available to answer questions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of chemistry which helped me in 116 and will also help me later on in Organic Chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't let yourself get behind in coursework. If there are any concepts you do not immediately understand, go to your professor before you fall behind. Complete all of the assigned homework and use it as a study reference before exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course, it is a challenging but rewarding class. Ely is phenomenal teacher who is very kind by letting us have unlimited tries on smart work, allowing us to learn more and not just look up the answers, and also has 4-5% of the overall grade in extra credit up for grabs. I highly recommend. The only thing I real disliked about chemistry was the labs but they aren't terribly hard, but they will seem like they are at the time. I also highly recommend learning your polyatomics early and quickly, I didn't and it hurt me on my first test.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning concepts like molecular geometry and thermochemistry and found them intriguing. There is even a vesper lab where you only have to come for 30 minutes and simply build models of molecules which is neat.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I knew little about chemistry coming into the course and ended up with a C on the first exam because the vocabulary/nomenclature was hard to pick up quickly but I quickly learned how to study and ended up getting As on my next three exams. The key to success in the class is study, study, study. Print off the PowerPoint and take notes in class, and for about 3 hours a week review your notes, probably not all at once, and in addition to the 2-6 hours a week you can expect to spend on smartwork. Practice makes perfect and this isn't a hard class if you are willing to devote yourself to your work.
