    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I course was difficult, but fascinating. I started to get a beginning understanding about how molecules behave in different conditions, and how reactions happen.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how molecules behaving in different conditions. I learned about how different reactions happen on a molecular level.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes during class. Watch different videos online that can help understand the material. Go see a tutor if you have the opportunity.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Right away you will notice that this professor is passionate about the subject. Dr. Schwartz has a way of making this topic interesting by throwing in his own experiences. He also does not use powerpoint, he writes down anything you need to know as he goes. This makes note-taking much easier because he goes at a pace that is slow enough to absorb the information and add your own notes. I also really enjoyed this class because it gives you a deeper understanding about how chemicals interact. They say if you are awful at General Chemistry and hate it, you will love Organic Chemistry. This is exactly what happened for me.

    Course highlights:

    You gain the ability to show how a chemical interacts on a microscopic level. You will be able to look two pieces of a reaction and predict what they will form and how much it will make. You will also learn how flow chromatography, distillation, and spectrophotometry works and how to read the results.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance isn't mandatory, but it is critical to pass the class in my opinion. His notes will not make much sense if you are not there while he is making them. Dr. Schwartz is the hardest professor that I have taken O-chem from (I have taken the full year, as well as retook the first term to get a better grade) but if I could do it over again, I would have taken the all 3 courses with him. At the end of the year long course, there is a national exam (ACS) that all the sections have to take. Schwartz is the BEST option to prepare for the ACS as it is a year long cumulative exam. I feel like he keeps that exam in mind throughout the year, whereas other professors only start talking about the exam during the third term. Be ready for this class to take the most of your time of all your class for the year if you want to do well. I recommend making reaction flashcards, a reaction book, and to rewrite all your in-class notes. Also, there is a lot of memorization in this class so I would recommend getting a composition notebook to keep with you that is specifically used as scratch paper. Do the practice problems, practice exams, and you absolutely need to get the book because it will be heavily used.
