    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In most organic chemistry classes students are taught to memorize the reagents and the expected outcome of different chemical reactions rather than understanding how and why the mechanisms work. As I transfer to UC Berkeley in the fall, I feel very confident in my knowledge of organic chemistry to be moving onto a competitive 4-year institution.

    Course highlights:

    This class made me into a different kind of a student. The professor does not pressure you with due dates. He held 4 midterms each semester and it was up to us do be ready for the midterms. There is absolutely no way one could cram for these exams. I never thought I'd be one of those students to go home after lecture and start studying the material right after it was introduced to us. If I didn't do that, I was behind. Also, there were no homework assignment by the professor. It was up to you find study material and visit the professor in his office hours to get more study material if we wanted. I learned a great deal about synthetic chemistry, nucleophilic/electrophillic substitution and elimination reactions, Mass spectrometry, NMR, etc.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You reep what you sow. Don't be lazy. The material is intimidating at first. But do the recommended work and trust in yourself. The knowledge will flow in. If you go through the motions you will know this material very well. It's cool to see how much it sticks in your brain.
