Very easy A+, there is no need to attend lecture or discussion as long as you go through slides on your own, and do the textbook problems.

Ruiz-Silva is an awesome professor. She lectures everything that is expected of the student to know. The problem is, she lectures at a rapid pace. At times during this course all I did was write but not understand. Other than that I would recommend her. She always has hand outs and she is always willing to help if you need it.

I came in this having some prior knowledge w/ Chemistry. Although it states that you need no prior knowledge I reccomend you start familiarizing yourself. Scerri seems like a nice person but when it comes to teaching he seems disconnected. If you have trouble with Chemistry or Science I think reading the textbook chapters prior to class might be helpful. Since the workload was very light it doesn't necessarily prepare you for the test or online quizzes. There is much material he doesn't cover in lecture which is why I suggest preparation prior to it. Overall, with enough outside work you can achieve a good grade in this course, just make sure not to rely on Scerri.
