    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend Dr. Payton-Stewart for this course because she is extremely knowledgeable on the subject, her enthusiasm protrudes over into her students, and her willingness to help is demonstrated through her hours she spends in her office (outside of class) helping students!

    Course highlights:

    I learned about organic molecules (carbon, carbon, CARBON!) structures, how to name molecules, how to react certain molecules, and how to problem solve. Organic chemistry is like a puzzle and I learned to love the various ways you can piece the puzzle together.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I made an A in both organic chemistry 1 and 2 and the advice I would give to students considering this course is to relax, study everyday, ask for help on subjects which you do not understand, and

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The drills are hard, but that's almost inevitable unless you get a super easy drill instructor. Dr. D is amazing at explaining, and she is eager to help during office hours or whenever you catch her.

    Course highlights:

    Synthesis, synthesis, synthesis! NMR, and more synthesis pretty much. But everything learned from Orgo 1 started to come together, and it makes way more sense by the end.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Review Orgo 1 before you even start orgo 2. Make sure you know you're reactions but make sure you can do synthesis problems. Don't fall behind the lecture, and don't slack.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For biology majors this course is required. I highly recommend Dr. Payton-Stewart as a lecture and/or drill teacher. She is one of the best. Everyone always dreads organic chemistry and Payton-Stewart does a great job of trying to help the student break down the course. She brings you to the water however cannot make you drink, so my advice for organic is do exactly as she says and put the work in.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a ton of mechanisms, how different predicaments can affect a product, the different structures of molecules and how if it's structured a certain way it can affect the problem. Organic Chemistry teaches you patience, and to pay attention to detail.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY STUDY STUDY! Don't go into organic with a negative attitude. Nothing is easy it takes much practice and discipline.
