## Student Review

It was very easy, the final exam had a few questions from the slides so study those make sure you go to the labs those are mandatory but not very hard. Make sure in those labs/ tutorials you choose a good group if you have a good group it will be very easy.

## Course Breakdown

## Additional Info

### CHY 102: General Chemistry

easy, but it can get hard. That’s because the speed of this course is incredible. While the material is easy and high school review, if you don’t keep up with this course it will really accumulate. A new chapter is taught every week and the best to way not to get behind is solving the homework questions and reading the slides. A website called Stemble is used for weekly homework assignments. The website requires a one time payment. The best resources for preparing for exams is Stemble and past exams.

Two midterms each worth 25%. Final exam worth 25%. The rest was divided between the online homework, in person quizzes, and interactive modules on d2l.

### MTH 140: Calculus 1

Medium, started off with some grade 12 review, and then picked up the pace. Make sure you solve as many textbook problems as you can, the more you practise the more comfortable you will be solving the exam.
