    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Bertman is a professor who listens to what his students tell him. After multiple students told him that they couldn't learn by just reading PowerPoint, Dr. Bertman decided to write all of his notes on the blackboard and do step by step examples.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to name and draw chemical compounds is by far my favorite thing to do (nomenclature).

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't get me wrong. Organic Chemistry is an incredibly difficult course. Half of the students do not pass on their first try. Attend SI instructions, read the book, make sure to speak with the professors during office hours, and make sure to breathe because it's not the end of the world :)

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She expected a ton out of her students. You really had to understand the concepts and mechanisms.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the last chapters we covered because they were all about Carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and DNA.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and when you think you can't study anymore find a way to study more.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    No doubt about it, organic chemistry is pretty high up on the "tough courses" list. Many people failed or dropped the class. Don't take it if you don't need it or don't love chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    Orgo 2 is a bunch of reaction mechanisms and substituent effects.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it with Bertman and either take it with easy classes or less than a full time student load.
