for you chem majors out there, which upper level class did you find most difficult or demanding? for spring semester im taking orgo 2 and analytical with labs, but i know theres tougher classes to come, fill me in
Word. Not to mention the Biochem lab reports. My lab reports were atleast 10-15 pages long. Every lab report had to be written up like a paper, crazy I tell you.WhatUpDoc! said:Gotta say Biochem no contest... my professor stresses concepts rather than rote memorization (i.e. who cares if you know the whole urea cycle, what happens if you switched an aspartate with a glutamate in the shuttle back to the TCA cycle?!?!?) therefore I use a freakishly large amount of study time on this class. I have a lot of P-Chem takers in my Biochem class, and while they agree P-Chem is no walk in the park, every last one of them said Biochem takes the cake on difficulty.
I took PChem and Biochem with ChemE majors and they all said Biochem was much more difficult than Pchem. But I took PChem (like a fool) without the required Diffeq, so my life that semester was a complete nightmare!WhatUpDoc! said:I have a lot of P-Chem takers in my Biochem class, and while they agree P-Chem is no walk in the park, every last one of them said Biochem takes the cake on difficulty.
Agreed, PChem lab sucked! Hardest/most time consuming lab hands down. Hardest course for me was either PChem of Advanced Organic.novawildcat said:I remember one lab we had to do-the report ended up being 62 pages long. doing error analysis for every single calculation in your pchem labs SUCKS HARD.
