    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is hard. Be prepared to put in a lot of hours studying and practicing problems.

    Course highlights:

    We learned a lot of the basics of organic chemistry to get going on the path of being a biology or chemistry major. Chirality, substitution and elimination are important as well as really knowing acids and bases.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapter before class and take good notes. Redo the homework as many times as you can before an exam. Go to tutoring sessions.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because while it is challenging, truly understanding the way atoms work and react with one another on a microscopic level is extremely rewarding. If you enjoy a challenge this course is a great way to test your intellectual capabilities.

    Course highlights:

    A complete understanding of the basic reactions between double and triple bonded carbons. A good overview of how chemical reactions work and why they occur. How to think critically and work your way through word problems that are chemistry based.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make to study the content you have learned everyday, do not fall behind. Make flashcards for the reactions you will learn. Reading the assigned text before you head into class is very helpful to prime your mind for the concepts that you will be exploring.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Class starts off easy then starts getting tougher and faster towards the end. TAs are more than willing to help.

    Course highlights:

    You have to be on top of your work - its ochem. Sections help and he posts videos online, which are really helpful

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    His tests are not difficult and his grading is pretty lenient. He does not make you memorize a lot of mechanisms and a lot of people say he does not prepare you enough for 108B, but we'll see. He curves a lot at the end!
