This class was tough.
If you are taking too many science courses in one quarter, I wouldn't recommend taking Organic Chemistry along with all those. This course requires a lot of self study time and because there are no homework requirements, the only way to succeed is to work out as many textbook problems as possible to be ready for any kind of questions the teacher might ask on an exam.
Professor Armstrong was an excellent teacher. The class itself was very challenging and required a lot of work. The class was focused on the basics of Organic Chemistry. Starting with nomenclature of organic compounds, alkanes, alkenes, substitution and addition reactions, stereochemistry and acid-base reactions were the topics taught in this course.

Advice for students:
Work out a lot of textbook problems and rework the exam and quiz problems. It's important to understand the basis of the concepts rather than memorizing how to approach each type of problem so I'd suggest using multiple resources such as organic chemistry websites to broaden your understanding of the concepts if the way textbook explains does not satisfy your understanding.
