This class was tough.
I highly recommend taking this course with Mrs. Wiskur because she gives you everything you need to succeed. She gives so many examples to the concepts you need to know and posts all her notes online just incase you missed something and need to go back. Her homework reflects what you need to know for tests and the Organic Chem as a second language textbook helps so much.
In this course we learned a lot about the mechanics of reactions and how to synthesize them. In addition we built off of a lot of the material learned from general chemistry such as functional groups, bonding, acid/base reactions, etc.

Advice for students:
My advice is to study every at least every week, if not every day. You will have a quiz every week and studying for them and doing good on them will help your grade and help you break up studying for the tests. The Organic Chemistry as a Second Language textbook will help you so much in this class to understand and practice concepts.
