    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is challenging and pushes you into deeper thinking about some of the common reactions in organic chemistry. Overall, I loved the course and Dr. Wolfe was always helpful in his extra office hours if you had questions. I also had a very good GSI who was very helpful with course-pack problems. What I really enjoyed about this class though was about halfway through we started covering reactions that delved a bit more into biochemistry. These were very interesting to me as I am a biochemistry major. Though these reactions at first may have seemed complex, the way they were presented made them easier to comprehend.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course included oxidation and reduction reactions, reactions of epoxides, reactions of various carboxylic acid derivatives, amino acid chemistry, carbohydrate chemistry, acid-base chemistry, Diels-Alder reactions and a few other side topics and reactions. I learned how these reactions worked by using curved arrow mechanisms. Also I learned the various reagents needed for each reaction and what reagents to use when a specific outcome is desired.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use the course-pack for the course and go to your GSI discussion or office hours to discuss problems you need help with or problems that you would like to make sure you are doing correctly. I also highly recommend taking advantage of the free study group offered through the SLC this was an extremely helpful resource. The study group is helpful because it provides you with a GSI of TA who did well in the course previously and it allows you to learn from peers while discussing answers. Also through the study groups your GSI and TA is able to provide you with extra worksheets and old exams to supplement the course pack. Do not just use the course pack in this course, try to use a variety of resources if you wish to do well.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course unless you have to take it for your major since it is hard and requires a great deal of studying.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge of how various reagents react with each other and how the structure of organic molecules affects their reactivities.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a grading curve but don't rely too heavily upon it and definitely sign up for an SLC study group right ASAP.
