Surefire ways to fail the course (and how to avoid them!)

Ten tips for increasing your exam scores

Welcome to Organic Chemistry II For Dummies. We’re certainly happy you decided to delve further into the fascinating world of organic chemistry. It’s a complex area of chemistry, but understanding organic chemistry isn’t really that difficult. 

It simply takes hard work, attention to detail, some imagination, and the desire to know. Organic chemistry, like any area of chemistry, is not a spectator sport. You need to interact with the material, try different study techniques, and ask yourself why things happen the way they do.

Organic Chemistry II is a more intricate course than the typical freshman introductory chemistry course, and you may find that it’s also more involved than Organic I. You may actually need to use those things you learned (and study habits you developed) in Organic I to be successful in Organic II. 

But if you work hard, you can get through your Organic II course. More importantly, you may grow to appreciate the myriad chemical reactions that take place in the diverse world of organic chemistry.
