Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Dr. Smith is an excellent teacher. She is very passionate about what she teaches and will go out of her way to help her students. I can honestly say that she is one of the best professors that I have every had, however, it is not all easy. This class requires a lot of work put in to get out with a good grade and having an in-depth history and understanding of general chemistry will help you (even though they are not similar).
This course teaches chirality, how to understand NMR, IR, Mass Spectroscopy, how to name organic molecules, the mechanism of molecules, etc. I could go on about what this class covers, but there is not enough time in the day. The key points are understanding the mechanism for organic reactions, and learning chirality of molecules and how this can affect the way that the molecule functions. Obviously, there is much more, but if you take the class it offers much to understand and challenge you.

Advice for students:
Unfortunately, you have to study a lot for exams and quizzes. This is a course that is very heavy on the advance knowledge of molecules and identifying them and to do that it takes a lot of work. Lab is relatively easier and takes less engagement, while often raising people's grade so just study study study.
