I completely agree with that. I had to work far harder in math based chem for my grade than I have to in organic so far (although I hear organic II is a different story). I prefer something I can see since I am spatial.I thought gen chem II or inorganic or "quantitative chem," whatever it's called was the worst. I hate algebra. Or was it based on calc? Either way it was math and I fcking hated it. I worked hard for that B+. I also worked hard for orgo and physics but they were much more enjoyable. It's more intuitive, for me at least, learning a reaction mechanism from a visual perspective than a numerical perspective.
I found Ochem so challenging because I'm not spatial at all. Give me some numbers anyday of the week. Which I suppose is why PS was my best MCAT section and I thought gen chem and physics were a joke.I thought gen chem II or inorganic or "quantitative chem," whatever it's called was the worst. I hate algebra. Or was it based on calc? Either way it was math and I fcking hated it. I worked hard for that B+. I also worked hard for orgo and physics but they were much more enjoyable.

+1...similar course at my undergrad called comparative vert. anatomy...got a C and and to make matters worse I had to take it 2nd semester Senior year, that being the only class I had left to take to fulfill my requirements for lab credit hours for a BS. Luckily I had gotten into medical school in March of that semester so my level of caring plummeted after thatVertebrate Functional Morphology (Read: Evolutionary Anatomy/Physiology).
At my university there is a unanimous vote for H A+P, this class is generally easy, but there is only one professor for the class here, and they are supposedly a fanatic. However, everyone also says that even after failing the class they learned a lot more than they thought possible. I have yet to take it.I'm curious to see the responses here.
Classes like: Organic I and II, Physics I and II, Inorganic, Molecular, Biochem etc.
It because most people dont take pchem.I'm stunned there have been no votes yet for physical chemistry. I mean, it's inorganic chem, physics, calculus and the world's most frustration lab portion. (Error analysis with calculus... blaghhh!)
P-Chem has to win, hands down.
the key is to understand you won't understand, and then everything suddenly becomes clear and mathematical
your just lucky you got the med school textbook; my professor for physiology taught the class as a med school test but could not give us a med text to follow by, only the usual undergrad physiology textbook. When it came to endocrinology, the professor again taught it like a med school class but at least he gave us the medical school textbook so it much easier to follow along!2nd semester biochem, or endocrinology (we used a med school txtbook...it was like trying to take a drink of water from a fire hose)
Yes, my introduction to mass comm class. Haha there were soo many random facts to know and that's all the teacher asked on the tests....All random and none of them tied into each other. I studied more for that class than any of my science classes!Did any other class besides a science provide anyone with unusual difficulty?
