Hi, here's a question for those who have had Lavelle previously: what method of studying for exams did you find most effective? Doing all of the assigned textbook problems or sapling problems or other things? Thanks for sharing :)
I personally also look through the lecture notes and examples that we have done during class. With some of the math problems like Ka calculation and so on, you would like to try doing some practice problems from the book he assigned; however, majority, as the person before stated, I tend to study off of lecture notes.
the examples done in lectures are the most accurate representations of what show up in exams. Make sure you thoroughly understand the concepts behind each example so that you are able to recognize what steps to take when you encounter a similar problem on an exam.
Doing all the homework problems does help in terms of practice. I also got a lot of help through peer learning sessions, as they were able to give a lot more practice and were able to clear up a lot of the material.
I would definitely recommend the UA sessions. For extra practice and better understanding, I would recommend "The Organic Chemistry Tutor" on Youtube because he explains concepts in addition to working through examples. Overall, try to stay on track with the homework and understand them as you do them so that you feel ready when exams arrive. Good luck! (:
I would definitely say doing all the textbook problems and reading the textbook helps a lot. Sapling is great for review before tests and midterms, too. UA and TA sessions are great if and whenever you need help.
