Hey I'm just about to start my sophomore year which means starting Organic. I hate all the calculations that general chem had (most of it in General Chem 2). I was just wondering if Organic has as much calculation/math as general or less? Thanks a lot.
There are barely any calculations, even in lab! I loved Ochem and HATED G Chem. I have heard that if you hate Gchem than you'll like ochem and vice versa. Ochem just makes more sense since you're concentrating on one thing basically the whole year (more and more reactions and mechanisms) whereas, in Gchem, you go over SOOOOO many different topics!
I suck so incredibly bad at math....suffered through G. Chem.....prayed for it to be over......and like you, wrecked my science GPA temporarily. I swear to god I never once understood what was going on in that class. When I took O. Chem, suddenly I was in a Chem class that made complete sense, was actually fun to do, and came easily to me. To me, the difference between G. Chem and O. Chem is similar to the dif between being right vs. left brained.
However, you still might hate it. But at least there's no math involved.
