    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I will recommend this course for both biology and chemistry students especially honor students and graduate students who wants to major in biochemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and analytical chemistry. This course has boosted my understanding about analysis in chemistry, the begining of evolution especially students who wants to major in pharmaceutical chemistry and forensic chemistry. It has a lot of practicals and lab work of biochemical relevance such as isolation of plasmid DNA, polymerase chain reeaction, purification of beta-amylase, test for reducing sugars, color reactions of carbohydrates, kintetics of beta fructofuranosidase and so on. The practical experience is really helping me presently in my research on Organic chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    Chem421 is divided into the following sections, biochemistry of an evolving science, proteins compostion and structure, DNA, RNA and the flow of genetic information, genes and genomes, carbohydrates, enzymes and kintetics , lipids and cell membrane, glycolysis and gluconeogenesis, the citric acid cycle and lastly oxidative phosphorylation. These are the areas i was able to pass through during the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The chem421 as handled by professor Jeng requires weekly quiz, and a lot of homeworks. Often times i have to use the to do my assignment because the assignments really counts, i also use it to get likely questions as well, i do go to meet him at his office hours to ask alot of questions from him, he sees that i am very hard working. Concerning the laboratory aspect, previous lab materials too really helped, i used them to cross check my lab report if i was writing the mind of the instructor especially the ones he released for us prior to each lab. This course is highly voluminous and it has the final exam as ACS so i will advice sudent offering this course to partcipate in each class and answer questions being asked from the instructor as this can give extracredits and to have a good grade at the begining of the exam as ACS sometimes might not be too easy. i had a couple of good grades in my exam which really helped to secure an "A" compare to my ACS grade.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is made much harder than it should be.

    Course highlights:

    There are extra credit opportunities!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The key is to study for all exams. Be sure to go over the homeworks, read the test book, and flip through the PowerPoint slides.
