Lectures are beyond boring. I went to 3 classes all semester because of how dreadful they were (and got an 85% on the final). Hardest part about the class are the labs that feel like they don't really match up with what we learn. Lots of concepts from grade 12 chem.
Boring, uninspired, obviously didn't want to be there.

Class is structured so every class you fill out notes in your lecture book, so make sure you have your book on the first day. Lots of assumed knowledge so make sure you catch up on old chem concepts from HS, probably just by watching youtube videos. Can get away with using notes from the lectures to study for midterms, I had the class online and midterms were all MC. Midterms and final were very fair. Harmen is a great prof, he sometimes glances over things without explaining them in depth but if asked he will go over the concepts again in depth. He does teach very fast so you need to make sure you do not miss class. I also found he will say a lot of useful information that he doesn't write down, so taking extra notes in the margins helps.
Keep up with the weekly structure and you should be fine.

- I-Clicker Attendance quizzes. - Textbook sold by book store was a must get to write notes synchronously with the lecture. - Class was a combination of both first year chem courses, with some additions/subtractions from both. - Midterm was fair. - Prof was the most boring professor I have had in my engineering degree. I almost fell asleep in his class many times over.
