11. Other comments:
The class was very rushed. It seemed like there wasn't enough time spent on each chapter or subject to truly grasp the concept. This made it very difficult to move onto the next chapter and understand its concept when I was unable to make the connection between the two. I feel like I would need to repeat the course to get a better understanding of organic chemistry. It was a really really tough class!!!
i was very happy with this class and would recommend this vilma fermin to any of my friends.
I enjoyed this class very much and would definitely recommend it to others.
