    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although I hated organic chemistry 1 and was dreading this course, the time and effort that Dr. Funk has put into this class made it much more doable.

    Course highlights:

    The TA office hours, the homework, and the practice exam packets were very helpful! The lectures were also always only on relevant material which was great. The format of the exams (free response) also really ensured that I understood the material.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study every day! Reach out to the TA's and professor for help and do not get behind, put in the work for the homework and practice material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chem 212 (Organic Chemistry II) is mainly for those looking to attend medical school or pursue a career that deeply involves chemistry (doctor of pharmacy, some research topics, etc.). As a biology major hoping to attend medical school, I highly advise students to take this course if you plan to further your education via med school. The course is very difficult but also interesting. Organic chemistry gives you that opportunity to challenge yourself and once you complete it, especially with a C or higher, it is very fulfilling and gratifying. Dr. Feldman is an excellent and kind professor whose exams are not too hard (as long as you keep up with the material) and does not mind you asking questions. There are review sessions and it's a class that compels you to increase your network through study groups - a study group for organic chemistry is almost imperative.

    Course highlights:

    The primary focus of this course is molecule synthesis. We learned how to synthesize molecules in both forward and reverse fashion. Most of the course builds quickly on what was obtained in the first semester of the subject (Chem 210 organic chemistry I), The synthesis of amino acids, lipids, and carbohydrates is covered in great detail.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    **Do NOT skip lecture - not even once! Do not get behind in the material **Form/Join a productive study group Go to TA and LA review sessions Be at least one lecture ahead **Complete end of lecture practice questions at least 3 times - before you read the lecture, after you read the lecture, and after you attend the class discussing the topic you previously read. Attend at least one office hour a week. **Attend all scheduled EXAM REVIEW SESSIONS - even if you do not attend weekly sessions

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course focused on the concepts of organic chemistry and the techniques used in the lab. It was an interesting course that is the basis for any jobs related to drug discovery and synthesis of organic compounds.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basic organic chemistry techniques in the lab and the different mechanisms of organic compounds.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, go to the professor for help, and stay on schedule with the material. Falling behind may negatively impact your grade.
