CHM 101 - 102
General Chemistry I-II
(4 Credits, Lecture and Lab)
This is a two semester chemistry designed for the non-science major. It emphasizes experimental and theoretical aspects of Inorganic, Organic and Biological chemistry.
We will discuss general chemistry concepts as they apply to issue within our society and environment.
CHM 101 is for Nursing Majors or any non-science majors at NVCC. You can take CHM 101 if you are certain that the school you are transferring to only needs an Introduction to Chemistry course

CHM 101: Satisfactory placement scores for ENG 111 and MTH 151 (or complete units 0-5 of MTT)

CHM 102: Completion of CHM 101 or its equivalent.
