According to other learners, here's what you need to know

high school in 8 reviews

This course brushes up some parts of what I have studied in my high school chemistry.

I almost entirely forgot chemistry I learned in a high school and I didn't like it, but now I feel I know something and I got interest in discipline - chemistry is exciting) There were couple minor mistakes in quizes (for example in one case the right answer was "aluminum sulfide" instead of "aluminium sulfide"), but they don't matter much.

I really did not understand it in high school since I had a first year teacher.

Loved all the lectures, It really helped me catching up my studies in high school.

I used it to prepare for a honors chemistry course I am taking in my sophomore year of high school.

It served me for a quick review of my high school physical chemistry.

more time in 3 reviews

It is just the right amount of work to learn in seven weeks, although some tests were significantly harder than others and forced me to work more time on.

I wish more time was spent going over the mathematical equations and more examples were given.

perfect for in 3 reviews

Initially I was overwhelomed by the amount of videos each week had but after all they were perfect for ensuring that the concepts were understood.

I did not take chemistry beyond GCSE level and this course was perfect for refreshing my basic knowledge and building upon it.
