    This class was tough.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a lot. Go to A+ a LOT. Practice a LOT.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Really don't like the professor - he teaches you how to take his tests, not organic chemistry. With that being said, his class is easy - made a 100 on the last exam.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't learn anything, honestly. He really doesn't teach the class, just how to take his exams. I'd recommend Pennington more, I had him first semester and miss him every day.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it with GG if you want to learn anything, but if you want the grade, he isn't bad. Pennington is overall better, IMO.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Organic chemistry is an intricate and fun subject. Pennington is the best teacher for it. He is tough, but he makes sure you learn the material. It is worth it.

    Course highlights:

    Thinking about the material creatively instead of just rote memorizing. Mechanisms and other material in the course require you to actually think about it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard. Go to lecture. Go to SI. Do practice problems. Don't just plain memorize, understand.
