This class was tough.
This is a tough class. But anyone going into the biochemistry or medical field will need a basic understanding of organic chemistry because ultimately, the process of keeping the human body alive is nothing more than a series of biochemical reactions continuously happening everywhere. And biochemistry is organic chemistry with longer chains.
We learned lots and lots of organic chemical reactions. When you have these two molecules in these conditions, this is the product. Lots and lots of memorization. You need to understand how these atoms are moving and why they move that way.

Advice for students:
Khan academy was very helpful, as well as other organic chemistry Youtube videos. Mostly, I would recommend writing the reactions out over and over again.
