study the reaction, mechanism, and the synthesis(most in organic 2). should study on the first day of school and keep study. should not wait until the test. should make flash card for the reaction. known the reaction in detail, because most of them very confuse.

Some professors (not all, but some) try to mystify Organic - Look through the BS and find the actual information. For me, Organic I was all naming and then only the reactions for Alkanes/Alkenes/Alkynes. In the end - it isnt really that much. Make your note cards - and be extremely disciplined. Work hard and you will be fine.

Go to class.
Dont let yourself get behind.
Make flash cards and use them when your waiting in line and what not.
Get the book Organic Chemistry as a Second Language by Klein.
