Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
I would recommend this course because it pushes students to focus on little details and truly think through each problem and figure out the different ways in which molecules react with each other.
I gained a new way of thinking from this course. With the help of a model set, I learned about favorable reactions, molecules' energies, and electron movement. One of the biggest highlights of this course was the multi-step synthesis, which taught us ways in which we can start from a single product and use different mechanisms and reactants in order to obtain a specific product.

Advice for students:
I would tell students to start studying early. This course consists of only exams and no homework or any other form of credit. The best way to study for organic chemistry exams is to simply practice. Practicing allows you to get comfortable with the new material and will help you tremendously when it comes time to take the exam.
