    Organic Reactions Often Don't Balance Like Inorganic Ones....

    Organic reactions often don't balance like Inorganic ones....The conversion of Ammonia to Urea I belive is in this catagory.By inorgainc procedural standards, the Krebs Cycle does not balance.This lack of consisitancy confuses a lot of people, and effectivly severs the chemistry...

    I Have A Test Today

    ...and I'm probably not going to do great. My whole day is going to consist of studying. We aren't even deep into it yet, but feel like I'm getting behind. I am, at least, getting good at the IUPAC names. Sigh, I don't think that's enough, lol.

    Passed Both Classes!!!!

    I passed both semesters of Organic Chemistry with a 3.3!! Woohoo!  The only part of the class that saved me was the small class size (20iss), and the fact that the professor understood how hard the material was.  He told us the standardized final was built so that the average...

    To anyone who is going to

    or has studied organic chemistry... I am sorry! It is possibly one of the most challenging science courses I have taken... One more exam and I am done!

    so my test today sucked. i studied forever and it seems like i got nowhere. the worst part, was i wished the test would have more fill in reaction type questions (like if you react this with this you get x or which reagent would you use here) but my teacher never does that. so i...

    I Hate This Class

    no really. i hate ochem. I have a full year and I feel like it is slowly sucking the soul out of me. WHY am I supposed to care about how hydrogens vibrate on opposite ends of a molecule. And Why do I need to know about EVERY reaction benzene will ever make in this lifetime? The...

    I Have My Final Exam In 24.5 Hours

    All I need is a 45 and my final grade will stay as a B. Yet I can't help but feel like I'm going to have trouble even managing that. It's just so overwhelming. I had a hard enough time studying a few chapters at a time for the other tests...now I have to remember all 13 chapters...

    I Have A Test Tomorrow

    It's the accelerated summer 2 course. There are 3 chapters, I had 4 days to study them before this, but I'm instead taking the fifth and final day to complain here instead of studying for things regarding alcohols, phenols, ethers, epoxides, aldehydes and carboxylic acids (how to...

    I Just Can't Understand This

    Enrolled into Organic Chemistry. It was a class of 100. 52 kids stayed. Few of them passed and only 10 people got an A. I flunked it--spectacularly. I can't let it go. I just can't stop studying and just dropping out forever, never trying again. I got an Organic Chemistry book at...
