    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is challenging, yet doable. For those who plan on continuing in the field of chemistry or medicine, I would suggest taking this course because it will determine if you are capable of making it in your particular area of study. It is a weeding out class, but as professor House says, "I would rather kill your dreams now and save you the college expenses rather than you figuring that out further on in your future."

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of organic chemistry which essentially revolves around the element carbon. I learned different types of reactions such as acid/base, substitution, elimination, addition and oxidation and reduction reactions. The nomenclature for this course is similar to basic chemistry classes and is easy to understand. One of the challenging parts the can catch you up if you do not practice is stereochemistry, which revolves around the structure of a particular substance.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice practice practice! Do not fall behind or you will drown. This course builds upon itself and you will not be able to continue if you don't know the basics. If you take this course and plan on continuing in the field of chemistry or medicine, treat this course as the foundation for the rest of your field's courses. You need to be able to stand on your feet before you can run. It's an interesting class and you will learn a lot, but you need to put in the required work.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was the first course that I had taken where I had to teach myself the material in order to prepare efficiently for the exams. I had to create methods with the information given in the course's required textbook to memorize and understand the reactions and expected lab results.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how and why the many chemical reactions work the way they do. I was able to grasp the understanding of using different compounds and ranging temperatures in order to gain the expected final product. Also, I now have the knowledge and ability to not only work forward in completing a reaction, but reversibly as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate to learn all the material that will show cased in the exam because not only will that cause abundant stress, but you won't be able to understand the next exam after's material without mastering the previous exam material.
