This class was tough.
I found that this course was one of the toughest courses I will ever take in college. I loved it, when I understood it, but it took a large amount of time out of my schedule to study for it. I believe that this course is meant for a student who loves chemistry and aspires to learn this subject. I took the course to see if I could further exceed in my studies of chemistry but I found that Chem 2 was where I would stop.
I learned from this course that chemistry is like solving a puzzle; it takes practice to get the pieces to fit together perfectly. I learned how to name complex organic compounds and what reactions organic compounds are involved in. Apart from the materialistic side of this subject, I learned to be more independent with my studies. This course proved to me that in order to succeed, I need to put more time in effort into my studies and that practice does make perfect.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this course I recommend that you practice as much of the material as possible. Repeat the steps needed for a certain problem and rewrite your notes to grasp the material. This is a cumulative course, therefore, I recommend that you review past material from chemistry 1 and 2 to understand the foundation of chemistry.
