    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course with this professor. His discussion style lecture makes learning very difficult. His exams are reasonable though.

    Course highlights:

    You learn the basics of stereochemistry and reaction mechanisms.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind. Read the textbook and get a hold of practice exams if possible.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Really good professor. He writes everything down on paper and posts his notes. He does fall behind though as the very last 2 chapters he spent 2 days and threw 30 reactions or so without showing the mechanism. The midterms were easy, the final was hard. Synthesis was a bitch. Curves very generously.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a knowledge of more in depth organic chemistry from the end of CHE 2C. Review of gen chem for the 1st couple of chapters. Nomenclature, more complex, with complex substituents. Cyclic alkanes. Know the priority of functional groups. Know about the basic reactions with alkanes. Know the steps of halogenation. Know stereochemistry, nucleophilic substitution, elimination. Learn about alcohols from ketones and aldehydes, and the proper reagants needed to be used.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have got to spend a lot of time for this class or you will not do as well you want to. Most of chapters 1-5 is easy, the real stuff starts chapter 6, the substitution and elimination. Read the book, but not too detailed, skim it. You have to do a lot of practice problems.
