    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was the first opportunity for an undergraduate chemistry/biochemistry major student to gain experience in working with their own lab stations. This class also encouraged students being able to think for themselves on how to approach an experiment, by having students prepare a lab protocol for how the whole experiment will be carried out. This help students not have to be walked through an experiment, but gave them an opportunity to think about all the steps that go into carrying out an experiment.

    Course highlights:

    Every student got to have their lab station to work in, with our own chemical lab hoods. I had the opportunity to learn the basics of several different types of analytical methods of spectroscopic analysis, like: NMR, GC/MS, IR, and HPTC.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the class seriously. Just because it's a lab course doesn't mean that you can slack out. You need to put in the time to have read the whole experimental procedure before hand and come up with questions to certain steps that you might not understand. I would also recommend taking detailed notes while doing the experiment, so as to help when writing a full lab report. Also don't be afraid to go ask the teacher/fellow students for help when you are stuck on something in the class.
