This is basically a repeat of grade 12 material... so as long as you are able to comprehend at a grade 12 level this shouldnt be a problem. Just make sure you go to class!

A lot of information to remember, at least 15 complex formulas to memorize. Difficult course, but easier then 1040 and if you keep up with readings, and attend lecture you can get a good mark.

Professor : Lori Jones/ Mark Baker

Comment :
First half of the course is mostly high school thermodynamics. I went to Lori Jones for first half, and found her notes to be rather lengthy. Also in her lecture you are expected to copy down the examples, and about 50% of them you do on your own (which is rather annoying). Second half of the course I went to Mark Baker's lecture. He posts all of his notes online, and they are very straight forward and to the point. However they contain many errors that he doesn't seem to fix year after year. Baker is very helpful with preparing you for the final, shows past questions, etc. Course is easier than 1040, more math based. Go to Mark Baker's lecture.

Much slower paced than 1040. It is more math based rather than conceptual knowledge. There are 4 quizzes and weekly homework assignments. If you made it through 1040 doing well is 1050 should be easy.

Loads easier than 1040. also it seems like there is less material to cover. Same textbook as 1040. If your prof is Baker, hes the best! Great notes, funny, and gets his points across clearly. Keep up with online assignments, quizzes and labs and you'll be fine.

Easier than Chem I, but you still have to do your work. Don't leave stuff till the last minute.

Not a bad course overall! Much easier than 1040. Even easier if you can get a hold of copies of old midterms or exams but even so the exams aren't too difficult.

Unlike others have been saying, I thought that this course was harder than 1040. I did not do well in this at all and all of the profs are horrible. Baker fools around too much and his accent drives you mad. The final was a bunch of crap. I went to 4 lectures during this semester. Teach yourself I guess?
