14BL and 14C

Postby JChen_2I » Mon Feb 17, 2020 2:34 pm

Hi! I was wondering if taking 14BL and 14C together is doable or is it too heavy of a workload/not recommended?
Thanks!

I have heard that it is doable to take those courses together!

I've found that most people end up taking both courses at the same time because it's the most manageable combination. But, of course, everyone's ability to do so will vary depending on each person. I would also consider the workload of your other classes. For the most part, labs don't require too much time to do the work as long as you stay on top of things and start as soon as you can.

I think it is definitely manageable, however I do know that 14BL is a lot of calculations and it takes time. So if you think that learning OCHEM along with doing chemistry labs is too much then split it up.

I don't know about 14C but I'm taking 14BL currently with 14B and the workload of 14BL seems decent at the moment. I don't think there should be a problem taking 14C and 14BL. You will just need to retain mainly acid-base concepts for 14BL because it focuses on that a lot.

I know a lot of people who have taken 14BL and 14C concurrently! Most people think 14C is a lighter in terms of content than 14D, and 14BL is more tedious work with all the labs, but I think with 14B content fresh, you'll be ok!

I've heard of quite a few people doing that. I think it kind of depends on what other classes you are taking as well.

I've heard BL is a LOT of work so keep that in mind as there will probably be a good amount of studying needed for 14C.
