Professor Melanie Veige Reviews
Prof: Melanie Veige / Fall 2023

This class is easy and a good prep for gen chem 1 if you study. There is no reason it should have such a low rating on this website and theres no way you can say its hard... especially not harder than chem 1
you have to pay for the software with the assignments on it, the work is annoying and you will hate having to do it but it isnt hard, exams are pretty easy if you can do basic chem, but you will not learn chem through this class unless you really go out of your way.
basically shouldnt have a professor/doesnt utilize professor at all, everything is through the assignment software.
only take this is you have to, it was a waste of time in my opinion. also dont take chem 1 at UF either take it as a transfer credit at some community college, it will be the same stuff just not made to be super difficult for no reason like it is here at UF
This course is only 2 credits but has the workload of a 4 credit course. There are so many assignments due (all online) that it consumed most of my time during the semester. For an intro class expecting the student to have little/no experience with chem before, it certainly expects you to become comfortable with the material in a very short amount of time.
Dr. Veige was responsive when I contacted her, and her recorded lectures were helpful sometimes. But she should definitely reevaluate how much work the course is for only 2 credits.
Skip this class, just do Khan Academy or a community college prep class if you really need it, then go straight into chem 1. The stuff this course teaches is basically the first few weeks of chem 1 anyways, so you don't get that much of an advantage.
