This class was tough.
Organic Chemistry is an intimidating topic for those interested in pursuing professional programs. However, Dr. Motshieldler presents the concepts in a way that make it understandable. She challenges her students to master the material and apply the concepts throughout the course. Even though Organic Chemistry is one of the hardest courses, it makes you beam with pride once your able to understand the problems and solve them.
The highlight of this course was when everything finally clicked. I was able to review and understand the reactions and apply them throughout the course. I also learned very valuable study habits.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to study, days, maybe even weeks before an exam. It is pivotal that you don't just memorize the information, it will not provide you with the materials to get you through the course. At the same time, enjoy it. Organic Chemistry pushes you, but you come out on the other end as a better student, prepared for the road ahead.
