If you're going to take physical chem, take it with him. He'll make you understand where the theory comes from such that you'll remember the material for a long time to come. He's very concerned about your learning. He once was about to leave for the day when he saw me sitting outside, and he took the time to explain a challenging homework problem . . . and that took about a half hour. Also, everything you hear about the TA, Pep, is true.

I thought PChem was going to be horrible but it really didn't turn out to be so bad. Schwartz really likes derivations so you wouldn't see too many plug and chug kind of problems on his exams. Be sure to go back to the most fundamental definitions when you solve his problems. You'll get the problems at least half right if you solve them this way. When I had 110A, the TA was Pep. Pep was so helpful. He gave out extra practice problems before the exams that really sum up what you should study. I go to the exams just doing these problems and I did fine (because the homework sucks). Also, be sure to look over Schwartz's old exams. He doesn't exactly recycle the questions but they are similar enough, if you know what I mean. He's taught 110A a lot of times so there should be quite a few exams floating around. Key to doing well in Schwartz's PChem class: practice, practice, pratice!
