Reviews and tips for CHEM1002

Personally think its a ridiculously hard subject but the content they teach is very interesting. you get several different lecturers each with their good and bad points. If you attend all the lectures and stay up to date with the content it'll be manageable Labs are 3hrs long, even though its interesting, i find it very stressful especially if you get the wrong tutor who doesn't help you.

I overall enjoyed this unit. There was minimal revision from year 11/12 so lots of new chem to learn! Some of the lecturers (in particular the second one) were pretty bad and didn't explain stuff well, or moved way too fast. I highly recommend getting the textbook to compliment your learning (especially when the lecturer doesn't quite explain it right). If you keep on top with the lectures and the content you will feel very prepared for the exam! I found the exam pretty breezy and had plenty of time. At first, I found the labs really stressful because it was quite different from anything I had done at school - you work independently and for 3 hours! But the demonstrators are very helpful and you can help out the people around you and talk to them about the questions. Online quizzes pretty easy - just do the practice quizzes over and over again because they are very similar.

A great and interesting course for those who have a sincere passion for Chemistry. The course is well structured; the content is built weekly and they all interrelate, instead of treating each content as a separate entity. If studied correctly, the exam will go smoothly with no major hiccups. It doesn't get 5 stars as some lecturers (not the content) present their topics quite boringly.

There are some fabulous lecturers but also some poor lecturers so don't rely entirely on the lectures. A lot of memorization so you really need to focus on how you are going to study for this unit (so many reactions and reagents to memorise). Labs are atrocious so preparation is vital. Online quizzes you either nail or fail but if you study really well than that shouldn't be a problem. Do not get lazy because if you slack off for a few days than the work really piles up and you might not understand what's happening during the lectures (=more work).
