    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is excellent! He is very fair and you will earn an A if you put the work in!

    Course highlights:

    All of organic chemistry is fascinating and I loved the course because it does not require any difficult math. It is mostly visual but be prepared for a lot of conceptual content. I really enjoyed learning about molecular orbital theories and the behavior of electrons.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you try to just get by in this course you likely will earn a poor grade and won't learn much. Put in the time, put in the effort and you will learn a lot and as a byproduct you will earn a good grade. Dr.Gould does not try to trick you so if you've studied and know the material you will do well on the exams. Exams are worth the majority of the points in the class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this course. Not because it was easy to do well in, or that the content was necessarily easy to understand (because both of those things don't really apply to this class) but because it taught me so much about how to be a better student and really get an approach to science material that will help me in future classes. The pace of the class is very fast and there isn't much room to gain points outside of the exams. Once you do apply yourself, its actually very interesting and gives you a new understanding of how chemistry works. Listen to all of Gould's advice; he gives you the tools and methods to get the grade you want and he's 100% right.

    Course highlights:

    You'll learn how to work hard in this class and break out of the whole-being-smart-from-ap-in-high-school-but-not-actually-knowing-how-to-work-hard thing. It preps you for every other science course you'll ever take, and even subjects outside of that. You learn that your brain and intelligence, no matter how smart, are not above any subject.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't put in the exact percent of effort you want your grade to be, you probably wont even hit within 10% of that range. I gave a 90% effort to this class (lived in the library, practiced prob 6 times a week, and stayed on track) and got a mid B. I do well in other science classes if that gives you an idea so even the brightest students have to put in a great deal of effort. Also, if his notes style is difficult or confusing to you because theres so much to learn, it helps to comprise each section into a basic concept study guide to see it all individualized and keep it together. Another note: you will hear "you cant memorize these reagents, you have to do them!" well thats true, but you also could easily get confused as to whether one reagent has H20 or H2O2 in it in the set so you might have to make some flash cards just so you remember the exact collection of reagents and conditions that go together in each one. I remembered what each one did through practice, but I often would make errors in writing it out correctly because some of them were lengthy/confusing. Dont be arrogant or you'll get it handed to you, just put in the work and enjoy goulds amazing teaching
