    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is amazing. It's much better than Orgo I. The professor is fantastic and there are student preceptors that are extremely helpful. It's a very hard course, but is definitely doable if you put in the work. There are 4 exams and a cumulative final, but Dr. K drops your worst exam and there are extra credit points throughout the semester.

    Course highlights:

    We learn so much and cover so many topics from alcohols to carboxylic acids to aldehydes and ketones to nucleic acids and carbohydrates. We learn mechanisms, structures, reactions and much more.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to stay on top of things. Print out the slides he provides on Compass before class and take notes in lecture, and then rewrite your notes. Remain on top of the preceptor questions posted in the facebook group and definitely go to preceptor office hours and Dr. K's office hours! Study well in advance of the exams and take every practice exam. Half of the points for every exam comes from the quizzes (literal screenshots) and you can take the quizzes as many times as necessary to get an 100%, so if you memorize all the quiz answers, you have a guaranteed 50% on the exam.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a challenging course, but if you have the time to put into it, you get a lot out of it.

    Course highlights:

    This is the one organic chemistry class where we have applied organic chemistry to everyday life using "special topics".

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to review the material after each lecture and the days between classes in order to retain as much material as possible. Do not put off studying for this class!
