So I did poorly in Orgo I this past semester (got a C...) and I'm thinking about how I can prepare myself so I don't make the same mistakes next fall when I take Orgo II.

I'm thinking about enrolling in a Orgo II at my local CC -- not for credit (I doubt it would transfer to my uni anyway), but simply for the experience and knowledge so that I will be better prepared when I take it in the fall at my university.

Is this a good idea? Would I be required to report the grade I receive at my local CC on AMCAS? Any insight is appreciated.

At my school OChem II built up on OChem I, so my advice would be if you did poorly in OChem I, is to take OChem I again and build yourself a stronger foundation for OChem II.
