    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Organic Chemistry is an all around tough course and everyone started to tell me there horror stories when I entered class on the first day. I remember going into organic 1 and thinking what did I get myself into. Organic Chemistry is definitely one of the toughest course at any university and it is great when you find the perfect professor. I had an amazing professor and she taught in a way that everyone could understand.

    Course highlights:

    In organic chemistry there are a lot of concepts that are taught. You begin by learning the basics of how molecules are built and how they react with one another. After the basics you go from one basic molecule to a more complex molecule that is 3x the size. There are a lot of concepts in organic chemistry and if you love the subject you will do great in this course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY! STUDY! STUDY! I can't stress enough how important it is to take a lot of time out of your day to practice drawing the molecules and going over concept questions. If your professor gives you a hand out, don't just toss it to the side, do it! You will not regret the extra time you spent to get the A.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Fields is a great teacher! She makes the material interesting.

    Course highlights:

    Have not finished this course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Organic chemistry is really a checkpoint in your academic career. If you can't perform in organic chemistry then you may want to consider different options for your career. If you are good at chemistry and physics then you will be fine in this course if you know how to manage your time.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Fields is a great organic chemistry professor. Her enthusiasm for orgo radiates in her lectures and wipes away the fear of the subject. Organic chemistry is the hardest hurdle of many pre-med's undergraduate courses and the fear it instills in many causes them to doubt themselves and fail. Dr. Fields does a great job of giving us plenty of practice problems, working through difficult mechanisms, and encouraging us to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how fun organic chemistry is. Orgo, versus general chemistry, is all about visual patterns. It's a huge learning curve getting used to the new visual format, but once you figure it out it's a fun ride.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to use every single minute of your exam time. If you finish early, you MUST go over your exam as many times as you can to find those small errors you WILL make. You will. Organic chemistry is about drawing pictures. You will forget an arrow here, or a plus-sign there.
