I tried to enjoy this class, but I really had a hard time liking it due to Prof. Shrestha's methods of teaching. She is obviously very knowledgeable, but her lecture style can often make simpler concepts feel more difficult than they actually are. She also isn't amazing at answering questions in class, and a lot of the time it feels like she misses the point of the question (although her office hours do somewhat make up for it). Additionally, it's hard to feel like she really cares about the class - I don't think she showed up on time more than twice throughout the semester. It's not an incredibly difficult class, but (at least for me) Shrestha didn't make it a whole lot easier.

This class is heavy on assignments that are due every week, in addition to the lab reports that we have. I would say that that the lectures are not enough to learn the material and you should read the textbook and do many practice problems on your own time to prepare for the exams and actually learn. Prof Shrestha's teaching style was not detailed enough and is surface-level at times so reading the chapters before class really helps understand the lesson. It is also important to keep up with the assignments especially with achieve because it is really easy to fall behind and it can impact your grade.

Chem 103 was hard but rewarding. I really enjoyed getting to know Shrestha. While her lecture style can be challenging she is very helpful and encouraging in office hours. She cares a lot about her students. If you are willing to put in the work, chem 103 is really not that bad. It is totally the type of class that it is what you make of it.
