    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would take this class because professor Elisabeth made the material fun and easy to understand. Chemistry was never my strong suit, but I was able to grasp the material and apply what we learned to real life situations. I would recommend this class to any student who struggles with chemistry or math.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the project at the end of the semester. Our goal was to find different organic chemicals around our houses in products. This taught me to always check labels. I never realized how many chemicals were in the cleaning and beauty products around my own home.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not miss class, always ask questions if you are confused, go to office hours if you need help, and complete all the practice problems the instructor gives you. Just as I mentioned before, Dr. Elisabeth is extremely helpful and is more than willing to give aid.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    General chemistry is a good course for people of all fields to take, because it teaches you the fundamentals of how the physical world works. It does require a moderate memorization and homework load, but it's not hard by college standards, and if you get the basic concepts behind the material, you feel yourself just riding along smoothly. I highly recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned the fundamentals of atoms and how they work, then moved onto molecular structure. After I learned how the different molecules were built and their properties, we went on to learn basic chemical reactions. Overall, I was able to understand the world on the molecular and atomic level. It's not one of those classes where you forget the material by the next semester. After chemistry, I will always see the world differently.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    For study, I suggest trying to understand the concepts rather than just try to memorize everything like in an anatomy course. Always work as many homework problems as you can, and you will feel over time that things start to make more sense and become easier. Doing lots of homework and getting down the concepts will lead to an automatic memorization of a surprising amount of the material.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Taking chemistry online is difficult if you do not have a study partner or tutoring. This professor's explanations are hard to follow.

    Course highlights:

    Know your polyatomic ions, acids, and bases!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get extra help right away if you do not understand something. Learn your polyatomic ions, acids, and bases right away. Practice working problems on a white board.
