    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is pretty difficult, but not impossible. The tests are pretty fair in my opinion, but the average of his tests are about 50%. This is a class you don't want to fall behind in. Hooley is a good teacher and is very clear about his notes. What he teaches is pretty much a shorter version of the textbook. I personally never read the textbook, and just based my knowledge off of his notes. That being said I walked out of his class with a B+ so maybe reading the textbook will push you to that A. It's a hard class, but it's a class that I actually like studying for.

    Course highlights:

    I've never studied so much in my life for a class so you definitely learn . There is not much to memorize because Hooley lets you use cheat sheets, but in 112B you don't get anything so memorize it while you can! Here you learn the basics of nucleophiles and electrophiles, mechanisms, sn1, sn2, e1, e2 reactions, and more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't fall behind and remember your stuff for 112B! Do the problem sets and look at the practice midterms/finals. A lot of people struggle with not enough time on the exams so manage your time well! He is pretty helpful during office hours.
