Comments on the course

Fast paced class with a lot of material to keep track of.

Comments on the professor

Doctor Price is great, he has interesting lectures and all of his exams are fair.

Advice

Most of the exams are designed so that you can pass them without knowing how to do the harder problems (like mystery element problems). If you find yourself struggling in the class try to get all of the easy problems right and ignore the harder ones, you should at least get around a 75% which will be above the average

Comments on the course

Not too difficult if you study the right way. Started out with a 59% on the first exam and got a 90% on the final because I changed the way I studied for this class.

Prof: Bryanna Sylvester / Fall 2020

Comments on the course

If you took and did well in AP chem during high school, you'll probably do fine. If not, I recommend studying up on some basic chem or taking the prep course. Class is very exam-heavy, and there will be 3 midterms and a final (drop lowest midterm). The exam itself is not that difficult (she uses questions similar to past exams and some book problems), but the time crunch can be rough.

Course Content

Mostly dealing with stoichiometry, redox, acid-base titration, precipitation, hybridization, orbitals, bonds, electronegativity, and more...

Comments on the professor

Prof. Sylvester will literally put you to sleep during her lectures, and the fact that I took this course online made it even worse. But she is very responsive when it comes to contacting her, and she is generally lenient when it comes to your needs.

Advice

The textbook is optional, but you do have to pay for ALEKS. I would say that the text is useful to have tho.
