    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is the basis for all understanding in any chemistry or chemistry-related discipline. While the course is difficult conceptually (of course relative to all formerly taken courses), it teaches how understanding precedes reciprocating. It teaches the fundamentals of reaction mechanisms, allowing development of a proper understanding of various chemical interactions.

    Course highlights:

    The bulk of the course focused on reaction mechanisms, how they proceeded, and electron movement. The course is very rewarding if you put in the time and develop a strong intuitive basis. I have a friend who studied the topic thoroughly and requires far less time in understanding the different reaction types in Organic Chemistry II. It is to be noted that Chem 236 covers very few reaction types, whereas the first midterm of organic II covers over 200 reactions and their mechanism.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. Those who are within the chemistry discipline are required to take it anyway. Nobody outside the majors are required to take and probably won't. However, this is the first class in considering whether chemistry/chemistry-related disciplines suits your interests. Looking back, it is not that hard to do well in this course, it just requires a different approach and some dedication. It is the first class you might have to start doing readings for.
