I am going to be a Freshman this fall and am currently enrolled in Chem 20A with Scerri as my professor. I was thinking about switching into Chem 20AH (if I still can), where the professor is Gelbart. The reason I am considering the honors section is because of the smaller class size and the fact that the class delves further into the material. Also, I have heard that Gelbart is extremely helpful, accessible, and an amazing professor. His research also interests me so I'd like to be able to get to know him more through taking his class and discussion and office hours.
I'm not looking to take this class for the honors program (not even in it because I didn't think it was worth it) but rather for my interest in Chemistry. Any students have experience with either Honors Chem or Gelbart? How is the difficulty/grading curve compared to the regular chem?
