    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The overall setup of the class was simple, and easy to keep up with. Dr. Chmielewski was a very fair instructor. She gave an ample amount of practice problems, and her mission on the exams was not to trick people but to test on the understanding of the material.

    Course highlights:

    This course was basically an introduction into drawing organic structures as well as learning some basic mechanism such as electrophilic addition and substitution. Recognizing nucleophiles and electrophiles was also a big aspect of this course as well as which mechanism to use under which conditions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To do well in this course, you must attend the lectures. She does not offer recordings of her lectures, and every class there in new material being taught. To do well on exams, be sure to use the practice problems she assigns.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to those who are willing to put in the hours to g over a lot of the same material to keep practicing what you learn

    Course highlights:

    I was given a lot of information on how the coursework related to the real world

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep going over the material that is given out and go over the problems that are assigned in class. Practicing the problems and doing the reading will help you master the class but does require a lot of time outside of the classroom. The PSO optional class is very helpful to get extra practice.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Chmielewski sets up the CHM 25500 course (semester 1 organic chemistry) in such a way that you have multiple ways to learn the material. It takes heavy, and somewhat difficult content, and makes it easier to comprehend.

    Course highlights:

    A study of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons and their simple derivatives in terms of (a) structure, bonding, etc.; (b) general syntheses and reactions; and (c) a logical modern rationale for fundamental phenomena as supported by reactivity orders, orientation effects, stereochemistry, and relative rates. Recommended for biology majors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend time at the end of each week to review the material learned. Do the advised practice materials, and go to recitations (open for help regarding content, homework, and exam study).
