Pretty easy, overall.
Professor Shapiro is a very helpful professor. I never liked chemistry in high school and was extremely nervous to attempt a chemistry class in college. But to my surprise, Professor Shapiro made chemistry so easy. I was understanding the hard concepts because of the way she taught chemistry. I was able to receive an A all thanks to Professor Shapiro's teaching methods.
In this course, I was able to learn complicated math equations, learn the elements on the periodic table, learn Lewis structures and molecular geometry, and also learn how to balance chemical equations. My favorite part was drawing the Lewis structures. I loved being able to 'connect the dots' so to speak and understand the bonding between elements.

Advice for students:
Don't skip class, ever! Chemistry is not an easy subject especially for students like me who are not math oriented. It was difficult at first but then I realized the more I practiced the easier it became. Always practice, the math portions become easier if you constantly practice. Don't be afraid to ask for help. I showed up to the tutoring center at least once a week. If I didn't receive the extra help I never would have received an A. Chemistry can be difficult but just put the extra effort and time into it and you will be fine.
