    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to those of you who are looking for a challenge, and are incredibly disciplined in your academics. On the positive side, if you are a Breaking Bad fan, then you will definitely understand what Walter talks about after taking this class. On the negative side, you have to study so much and commit everything to memory. I wouldn't recommend this class because of the amount of stress it puts on you. There are endless nights of studying, desperate attempts to understand assignments, and a general sense of "what am I doing?". If you aren't that into chemistry then I would not even give this class a thought.

    Course highlights:

    I learned from this course the true extent of working hard in college. I always heard people say how much you have to put into your classes in college, but now I truly know. Besides that, I learned so much from this class, chemistry wise. Every lecture I was faced with something I never even knew existed. The subjects ranged from alcohols to ketones, and alkenes. Within those subjects we learned about naming, structures, isomers. Organic chemistry is truly unlike anything I have ever seen or learned before.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. Do an absurd amount of practice problems. Find people to help you with what you don't understand. Go to your TAs and/or professor for extra help if needed.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Lieberman is a straightforward professor. She will tell you what to study and what will be on the exams.

    Course highlights:

    Basic topics of Organic Chemistry were learned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Spend more time than you think you need. I would not recommend this course to someone with a full schedule who it is not required for, as it takes a lot of time and effort to succeed. Spending an hour a day to fully understand the information will be highly beneficial.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although this is a difficult course, it is the one I learned the most from and has been most applicable to my career and life. Dr. Pinhas has difficult exams but he prepares you well with notes and recitation sections.

    Course highlights:

    You learn the basics of organic chemistry, along with reviewing the majority of general chemistry and understanding it a lot better. It is not fun to read the labels on the back of products and be able to understand or picture the ingredients that are in there, such as acetone or hexane.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    BE ready to study. It would be best to review the notes everyday and then ask questions to the professor if you have any. Make sure to learn the concepts and general ideas instead of specific examples so you are able to apply them to different problems.
