    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:

    Was a great class and learned so much about chemical reactions and the application to the real world. This course and professor made me love organic chemistry and was the reason I got a minor. The class itself is weighed primarily on exams and there are no homework assignments at all actually. It indeed is a rigorous course but with exciting material and a great teacher was my favorite class at UIUC.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. K did a great job utilizing power points to teach us over 210 different chemical reactions and the reagents used to make them happen. We also learned about many popular molecules and drugs used in the everyday world. We learned about how they were synthesized and reactions used to make them.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Flash cards and Dr.Ks summary sheets are a must that need to be memorized for exams. In addition one thing that really helped my was using a white board to draw out and practice all the reaction mechanisms. Overall, there is a lot of work that needs to be put into this course but as long as you put in the work you will be rewarded.
