This class was tough.
The content of this course can be overwhelming, but Dr. Pires is an amazing professor. He teaches the material very well, and makes sure that everyone understands what he's saying. Also, he is always there if a student needs assistance understanding anything.
This course mainly highlighted the various types of mechanisms for organic reactions. I learned to develop the mentality of organic chemists when observing a reaction, and think critically to complete reactions.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Do lots of practice problems! This course is like no other. You can't memorize reactions and do well. You have to put lots of time practicing reactions to develop the mentality of an organic chemist.
