This class was tough.
This was a tough course, while I loved Dr. Sandberg, the material and pace of the course was exceptionally difficult. The thing that I would recommend the most, is purchasing a model kit and building some of the molecules you are studying. Chirality can be a very tricky topic that a model kit can go a long way in helping you understand. Also, make sure to use the undergrad chemistry tutorial center for help with homework and general questions.
Organic chemistry is an incredibly useful subject for understanding higher topics such as biochem, anatomy and physiology, and neuroscience. The basics of simple reactions are an amazing takeaway from this class and I think Dr. Sandberg does a great job in teaching them.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to find a tutor. In my personal opinion this was the best thing I did for any class I took. An individual who can sit down and spend more time with you going over the topics from class is incredibly helpful. Also, many of the tutors are familiar with the different teachers and know their style and what topics they focus on.
