    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There are barely any tests the whole semester and the ones given are very hard. Most people fail, and the teacher is not very good at teaching. Since we aren't tested much the whole semester, the tests we do have go really badly.

    Course highlights:

    Don't really think there are highlights. I learned how important it is to be tested frequently, and if not by your teacher, than you the student must take initiative and stay on top of your studying and test yourself.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all practice problems and even problems from other teachers that you can get from your friends in other classes. Read the textbook. Go to tutoring.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course because this professor is the absolute worst. He only reads off of slides and he does not answer questions in class or in office hours.

    Course highlights:

    I truly do not think I learned much from this course, and I barely passed with a C. This was one of the worst courses that I have ever taken.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice would be to go to the tutoring center and SI sessions. Also work with fellow classmates who understand the material.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Herman isn't the greatest at helping struggling students one-on-one because he tends to get lost in his own head, but his sense of certainty and knowledge about the subject shows in his lectures. I left the course feeling very confident about my knowledge of General Chemistry because his tests were always fair and very challenging.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about so many of the different math problems you could come across in General chemistry from calculating pH to combining different laws to get pressure. Furthermore, the concepts in the book were great aids.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    After lecture, go back in the book and take notes solely on the things he talked about to save time. You'll need this time to practice the homework problems over and over.
