I think the best things you can do for 14b are office hours, review sessions, and practicing problems like the ones found in our assigned homework problems for the different outlines we cover.

I would recommend the homework and just browsing the solutions manual. The methods of answering the questions are very helpful for trying to answer similar questions on the test. It even includes extra explanations about the equations and the concepts that are written really densely in the textbook.

1. Go to LA sessions if you can and TA office hours. Those are really helpful.
2. Do the HW problems.

For me, the workshops are really helpful since they give you extra problems to work on. If you have questions, I suggest going to the TA office hours or the step-ups/ drop-ins.

I go to plfs and find them to be quite helpful. They are not a substitute for studying, but they really do help in solidifying the material.

Study groups are also extremely helpful, as everyone can have different grasps on different topics.

Doing all the practice problems he gives us is very helpful, as well as making sure you completely understand all the learning objectives! I also recommend watching organic chemistry tutor on YouTube if you don’t understand a concept

Do all of the practice problems, read the textbook, do workshops and office hours. Use whatever resources to make sure you fully understand each topic and are comfortable. You know you got it down once you can explain it to someone else. Also don't cram.

Reviewing and practicing through all the homework problems several times would definitely help, as well as going to workshops and step-up sessions. It also definitely helps to look through outside sources such as Youtube videos from the Organic Chemistry Tutor

The way I study is reading over the notes, read the book, do ALL the homework problems, and make sure to ask questions on everything you are confused on because Dr. Lavelle can ask questions on virtually anything out of those options.

I do the hw problems because those are the most similar types of problems that we will see, as well as looking out the outlines.

Homework problems, review sessions, lecture notes and online videos are great resources to use when studying for this class!

reviewing notes after lecture and trying to process them helps me to retain information. i also find that, as difficult as it can be sometimes to do practice problems without cross referencing solutions, that is definitely a good way to train your mind on the content. hope this helps :)

I read over my notes after each lecture, do all the homework problems, and attend review sessions. Having access to past exam questions is also incredibly useful!

What I usually do is take notes on the textbook, go through the notes from lecture, and then do all the homework problems. I also do the worksheets that my TA gives me over again.
