    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    From what I've heard about the other teachers who teach this course, Liotta is by far the best. His tests and homework are super fair and it's completely possible to get an A if you put the time in. Most of the homework questions come directly from his lecture slides, and if they aren't there, they are definitely in the book. Even if you don't understand it, the answers are there for you to find. There have been so many times when I look at a question I missed and go back through the slides and it was literally right there, I just didn't see it. The tests are always the same format as the homework problems, just with a different substance, so it'll never be an issue of not having confronted that sort of problem before. Look over the homework, do the practice problems he suggests in the book, and if possible, get an old exam from someone who took the course before. At least 25% of the questions from the exam will be the exact same as the questions from one of those resources.

    Course highlights:

    You honestly just learn what organic chemistry is. There's not a lot from this class you see in high school (unless you went to an amazing program) so you learn all the basics of notation, reactions, infrared, etc. Things you can't live without knowing in higher level chemistry classes are taught here, so pay attention.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need to take this class, take it with Liotta and try to get a study group. It helps so much having other people to ask about this course since if you don't know something, it's really because you don't know it and it's hard to teach yourself. Do all the homework and always plan to spend at least 4-5 hours on it, and that time increases as you go through the course and the material gets harder. Do the practice problems in the book and start making some sort of study aid for the mechanisms from day one and add to it throughout the course as you learn new ones!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I strongly recommend this course. Great professor and great students will motivate you to study hard.

    Course highlights:

    Deep learning about the flow of electrons is the highlight of this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to make sure that you review the class every day. Study like every day is an exam day.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is incredibly valuable, but I would try to avoid taking this class with other heavy STEM courses. I took a combination of Calc III, Chemcial Processes, and Physics I with this course, and although I passed them (Bs and Cs), I could have performed better with a humanities or social science to replace one of them.

    Course highlights:

    You will learn how to identify the chemical structures and names of many basic organic compounds, and explain why many of them exhibit certain properties and phenomena. You will be exposed to concepts ranging from learning nomenclature to a few chemical spectroscopy methods, reaction mechanisms and reaction synthesis.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Essentially what I stated in the Tell Us More section still holds here.
