Just thought I'd throw a question out there... My friend and I both took OChemI this fall at two different schools. She and I had totally different approaches to the material. In her course, they were taught concepts and the emphasis was placed on predicting reactants for various reactions. In my class, the entire thing was memorizing every mechanism under the sun, writing detailed mechanisms for different reactions, predicting products, etc. She did far better than I did... They actually had a multiple choice final. Still don't know how that's possible. So I was wondering about other people's Orgo I class. How was it taught? And which way was a better prep for The Beast? Can you tell school is over and there's nothing else to think about??
