Tests are extremely hard, gives an insane amount of homework and expects her class to be your only focus. DO NOT TAKE HER.

Pros: NONE
Cons: Her labs are hard and she gives no grace for being late to a lab or forgetting one thing
Tough cookie, her way or the highway. You can attend her office hours but be prepared to get a lectured.

Weekly lab reports are given. Dr.Dillon doesn't teach the classes; the TA's do. Depending on what TA you get and how they grade your reports, is what your grade will be

Pros: Will answer all questions
Cons: Hard grader
Start the lab reports right after the lab to give yourself enough time to ask questions. Be very specific, almost ridiculously specific, when writing lab reports and recording data.

Pros: - Great TA
Cons: -LON-CAPA
I never actually saw Dr. Dillon. Our TA (Mike Bair) instructed the lab, and he was beyond awesome. He knew the lab, so he could help out with any questions. We ran into some problems with various labs due to lack of materials or different set ups, but he handled them properly (and often resulted in less work). He grades fairly and leniently. However, the online pre-labs that come with any Chem class at FSU, LON-CAPA, is the bane of my existence.

Pros: Gen chem lab is designed for you to succeed.
Gen Chem Lab is designed for you to have a full week to complete your report and Lon-CAPA. Do not wait until the night before your lab meets to do either one. You can honestly get an easy A if you just take my advice and use the whole week to complete your assignments.

Cons: Tests are harder than other chem II teachers and shes not as good at teaching the material. Course is completely math based with almost no concept questions on test.
Terrible teacher, terrible woman...
