Gen chem= joke compared to uppers
Are the upper chemistry courses that much harder than the year of general chemistry? I'm thinking I might switch form biochem. Not because I'm intimidated now, but I dont want to end up in a situation where maintaining a 3.8 is too impossible. There are a couple students who keep saying "general chem is by far the easiest chemistry class you will ever take and they are a joke compared to the others". People usually laugh when they say this, and then they're like no, I'm serious.
So are they that terrible? I'm the kind of student that jus deals with math, I dont' love it. How hard is it to ace every math heavy chem class? How many people have done this? On a scale form 1 to 10 how are your math skills? Thanks
