    Toughest class on campus...

    Chem 332 for my money. Crap load of synthesis and precise steps to get points.

    Chem 325 is harder than organic 2. At least i think it's 325. It's the first part of P Chem. I got my *** kicked in that.

    It's been quite a while for me, but IIRC that is organic chem 2. If so then I will second that, I hated that class. Tons of memorization and very boring.

    M.E. 411 - Automatic Controls. This class was nothing like I expected it to be. Luckily, Leuke was teaching it and gave all of us that stuck with it (10? 12?) an "A" for effort.

    By the way, if you're struggling to understand everything, get a tutor. That's what I did and it help greatly with understanding concepts so I didn't have to memorize as much. I highly recommend it.

    Re: Toughest class on campus...

    The two theory classes in the Com Sci program were pretty ridiculous (3XX something)... one of the tests just had a blank page with a line of text at the top that said "prove there are an infinite number of prime numbers"

    Yeah, chem 324 (P chem I/intro to quantum mechanics). the one reason I didn't get a chem minor.

    You're right. Chem 325 is part two of P Chem. I think it's thermodynamics.

    I took a 5 credit statistics class in one summer session that was pretty darn difficult. I think it was like four hours of class followed by a two hour lab every day. Not sure if it was more difficult because of the subject or because the entire course was crammed into three weeks. Either way, it sucked, but I got a B+.

    I thought that the thermodynamics class wasn't terrible, but the quantum mechanics one was flat out brutal. I think that was the second semester? 325? Just got rolled in that one...took my C- and never looked back!
