    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Organic chemistry is typically a required course for graduate education, so I don't need to recommend the class. But I DO recommend Dr. Nasiri. Not only is she sweet and funny, but she knows her stuff. She highlights the details of every step in every mechanism. Is the step reversible? Why is it happening? What are the pKa's, and if you don't know them, what are some principles to help you make an intuitive guess? I took 11A with another professor and studied 12 hrs a day to get an A. With Nasiri, I've never studied more than 4 or 5.

    Course highlights:

    I think Nasiri's warm, motherly presence is a ighlight on its own. However, I really enjoyed the labs. After interning in a lab for 6 months, I felt independent. The trust that the TA's have in you also factors into that feeling.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    There's no way around hard work. Life will be hard, so why shy from it now? Make it easier on yourself by going to lecture, focuisng, and staying on top of your studying. If you aren't great at chemistry (I get it, I suck at chemistry), then watch videos, use other books, and go to office hours. The more ways you hear something, the more well developed your understanding becomes.
