Professor Garrell is a very energetic teacher who loves to teach and is caring for her students. Her tests are fair, especially because you KNOW how the test will be like because she gives Learning Objectives which basically outline the skills/facts/knowledge you need. The first midterm focused on naming and using the R/S naming system and a few other things. The second midterm is ridiculously hard because you have to memorize 25 reactions - their reactants, reagents, and the products. The final was really hard because you have to memorize 30 reactions and also be familiar with which and where electrons go (arrow pushing electrons). Discussions are very useful in learning the naming and reaction stuff, especially because I got a really good TA, Cait, who baked us cookies and taught REALLY REALLY well. Overall, lectures are fun to be in, but a lot of work is put into this class because memorizing 30 reactions and which and where electrons go takes a lot of time.
