    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Passionate professor who puts his students first and foremost.

    Course highlights:

    Orgo is often one of the most feared courses in all colleges across the country, but Weinschenk went to infinity and beyond to facilitate his students learning. He knew the names of all his 200+ students within the first two weeks of the semester. He encouraged constant student engagement in class and was always cognizant of his students' progress. I was able to develop an intuition regarding orgo because of his teaching approach.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book. Go to office hours. Never be afraid to ask questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great professor who is passionate, teaches very well, challenges students, and provides lots of learning tools.

    Course highlights:

    Learned organic chemistry very thoroughly and understood it from both a theoretical and practical perspective. Also, Dr. Weinschenk emphasizes molecular orbital theory much more heavily than other professors and thus you learn to apply very well to a theoretical understanding of chemical reactions. His exams are challenging but he also gives resources to prepare you well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be proactive in learning the material both in and outside lecture time. Re-read all his notes, try the problem sets before getting the answers, and study ahead of time before an exam. This was one of the fewer courses at Emory where this was necessary, and is especially important for pre-meds since organic chemistry is tested on the MCAT as well.
