    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Organic chemistry has a horrible reputation, but Professor Chmielewski is able to explain it in such a way that is fun and understandable. The course is dense with content, but if you put in enough work, a good grade is easily attainable.

    Course highlights:

    CHM 25500 under Chmielewski has quite a bit of extra credit and there are only 4 homework assignments. It covers the physical, structural, and reactive properties of organic compounds with a focus on those that are biologically-relevant.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always work on the back-of-the-chapter problem sets in preparation for the exams. Also, draw out EVERYTHING. Drawing out organic structures and reaction mechanisms really helps to retain the subject matter. And always read the directions on the exams. I only missed 3 points on the second exam due to wrong answers. The rest of the points that I missed were from not reading the directions and circling/explaining certain things.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights mainly around nomenclature, acid/base chemistry, and reactions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the material and don't fall behind.
