    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to students who are able to put time into studying several hours a week. When I took this class, I like many other students, were taking many other science classes. I studied quiet a bit for this class and I still couldn't seem to pop the scores I wanted. However, there were many points that were offered as well as bonus quizzes throughout the semester that really helped my grade. Dr. Raker does try to help by adding in points and also the clicker questions throughout the semester helped my grade even though some questions were trickier than others. Also he does say there is no curve, but after the ACS exam, he did "curve" our grades from the percentile you scored on the ACS exam. I scored in the 90th percentile, which is around a 70 percent so my grade remained favorable in order for me to pass this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about specific reactions, structures, mechanisms and much more that I needed for organic Chem 2, which I am currently enrolled in. I feel as if I could've been more prepared for Organic 2, but overall, Raker was a fair teacher.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you study and practice the material learned over and over until it goes more smoothly. Also make sure you put as much effort into the class and the clicker points, which definitely add up as well as the online homework. Get as many points as you possibly can in these areas as well. I wish I would have been taking less classes so I could focus more on this class. I took a full load, like many other students, but I know I would have done much better if I could've taken less science courses at once.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    After taking an organic chemistry course, I've discovered that it is an extremely practical and interesting science, and Dr. Fields is a great professor to take it with.

    Course highlights:

    My major falls under the biological sciences and this class exposed me to the mechanisms of the chemical reactions important to biology. I learned why the chemical reactions I've seen in previous classes happen the way they do, and I believe this class has helped me gain an edge in my biology classes by extending my understanding of crucial biological processes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind and practice example problems! Practicing mechanisms is how you learn in this course!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Although the teacher was phenomenal this class was very hard for me to grasp. My advice for this class would be to study everyday, use tutoring services, see your teacher outside of class, and most importantly only take the class if you know you can dedicate at least 3 hours a day after class to studying.

    Course highlights:

    For me this class was tough. I had to take it a second time unfortunately. I learned a lot about carbon of course and a lot of equations. My favorite part of class and the only thing that made it easier to understand was the fact that I had purchased the 3d model kit from the bookstore.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put a significant amount of time into understanding this course and you should succeed. It may seem hard to understand and not interesting at first but with the right dedication it can become the opposite of both of those characteristics.
