How did you study for the class?
"There isn't one way to succeed in orgo or one best way to study, however, I personally liked to focus on the professor's contents, their problem sets, and use the other resources they offered in class to study."
-Jonathan Huynh | Class of 2024
"Aside from independent study, I would always go to office hours. Working out problems with the professor and building those connections helped with getting into the professor's head and seeing how they think. This really prepared me for exams as I learned how to understand what they were really asking for and how they wanted us to answer questions."

"I found the book very useful, especially the summary sections at the end of each chapter. There is objectively a lot of information in organic chemistry that you will have to know but making sure you use time management to keep up with everything will help you from getting overwhelmed"
-Tully Liu | Class of 2023
"I would read the book before class to prepare for the lecture. Then I would go to lecture, take notes, and rewatch the lecture at night if needed as it was helpful to hear the material multiple times. The next day, I would do a few practice problems in the book to keep up with the pace of the material and practice it as we learned it. The main tip I have is to keep doing practice problems as possible, and if you don't understand the problems, then utilize the workshops, office hours, and Learning Assistants for help."
