    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Well I would recommend this course for any student pursuing a degree in the health fields, since organic chemistry is crucial for that. Without organic chemistry one would not be able to understand biochemistry and thus not be able to understand DNA, the basic hereditary unit of life. Organic chemistry is indeed the study of life and life's chemical reactions, it explains how macromolecules bond and much much more! This is a difficult course, I primarily did well because I put in a lot of time and effort and never fell behind and organised group studies.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I was able to learn how to name organic molecules via the IUPAC nomenclature system, I learned how to identify electrophiles and nucleophiles which led me to learn about organic reactions, I learned the reactions of alkenes, I learned about stereochemistry, cycloalkanes, substitution and elimination reactions and reactions of alcohols, thiols, sulfides and many more organic compounds.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I received an A in this class, because I put in a lot of time and effort. I studied the textbook and then looked over the slides to reinforce the material and I practiced a lot. To do well in this course you must practice what you learned. I had a study group of like minded individuals and we would study together and teach one another. I would suggest going to Professor Goswami's lectures since his practice problems are very similar to the exams questions. The homework was not at all representative of the exams, so I never looked over that.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Organic Chemistry is an interesting class, but you need to understand General Chemistry 2 if you want to fully understand this course. The labs is what made the class bearable and it's what helped me get through both semesters of organic chemistry. I wouldn't say this was the most interesting course I've taken, but I would recommend this class to students who are chemical engineers or to those who want to pursue a career in chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    Stereochemistry was interesting topic. Different orientations of functional groups in space, effects the nomenclature. Chirality was an interesting one. Labs were interesting where you synthesized your aspirin.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to office hours! Dr. Rzayev is by-far the nicest guy you'll ever meet. You can't learn organic chemistry on your own and you need to keep up with the material. Use the practice exams they give you, and if you're willing to burn some cash- buy ClutchPrep or LeahforScience. They have a bunch of videos that can help you with this course.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. If you are a chemistry geek like I am, then organic chemistry will be extremely insightful and rewarding. It's the foundation for life as we know it, and the way in which the knowledge pools together almost feels like pieces to a puzzle falling into place.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include learning about synthetic reactions, identifying and naming organic structures, retrosynthetic analysis, and real world lab/research applications. Taking this course really allowed me to appreciate the breadth of applications that organic chemistry has in every day life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY AHEAD OF TIME AND READ THE TEXTBOOK!! I can't emphasize that enough. Going to lecture without reading the required text will be like entering a classroom in which the professor is speaking another language. There is a lot of material, and it becomes pretty comprehensive as the semester goes on. Therefore, reading and staying on top of the material is the most beneficial advice I have. If you do that, then the course should be very manageable.
