I know I shouldnt be complaining so I won't... I just found out I got an A- in my first quarter in ochem today... kinda disappointed but I expected to do much worst... but I feel there is always room for improvement...and I was wondering to those who have gotten As in both semesters/quarters in ochem... how did you guys pull through? Organic Chemistry was intense for me.. (wayyy different from G-chem) and I had to struggle for that A-.... if there are any suggestions you could give me to study better it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! I know practice is one of the key elements to success in ochem; I redid problems in the back of the chapters over and over and over again... went to lecture everyday... didnt take much notes though in class because it was already on powerpoint (maybe thats the mistake?) put reactions and mechanisms on flashcards... 1) What many hours did you put into studying a week for just ochem? 2) How many days or weeks did you study before your ochem midterm or final? 3) How did you study the concepts/reactions/mechanisms? 4) Solo study? Group study? Or a little bit of both? 5) How do you reduce stress when ochem midterms are coming?
