    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Organic Chemistry is a phenomenal course that really digs deep into the reasons why certain reactions occur the way they do both in a laboratory and in nature. This course not only teaches you the organic chem that is used in labs but also every lesson demonstrated how important organic chem is to our lives everyday. I feel that with many science courses people have difficulty connecting it to our lives, but this course does exactly this.

    Course highlights:

    I was always fascinated as to why reactions occur the way they do. In gen chem we only learned about atoms and usually just about reactants and products, but in orgo you see the reasons why a reaction takes place the way it does and at certain conditions why it prefers to do one reaction over the other. Multiple factors determine why reactions occur a certain way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to stay on top of your game. If you fall behind you will have difficulty catching up. Meet with professor, watch videos, and keep practicing.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Go to lecture and make sure you read the book. Take the time each week to learn the topics so when the exams come you are just reviewing and not learning anything new.

    Course highlights:

    Lab is fun because you are learning skills that will be useful in research etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY AND TAKE THE TIME TO REVIEW

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking Jones for organic chemistry because he wrote the book you'll be using and is a great (although tough) teacher.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think. That sounds weird and clichéd, but one of the first things you'll notice in Jones' class is that the problems are on a much higher level than the concepts themselves. To figure them out, you have to know the concepts AND think deeply.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to practice. Do every problem you can get your hands on. Then do them again.
