1. Course PreparationI don't really have one overarching strategy, and I wouldn't say that my strategy is the most elegant or efficient, but I would say that I am getting there. Especially in the beginning, in was more of "siege" tactics than anything.My one bad habit (?) with classes is getting ahead of the class pace, sometimes learning all of the subject during a semester break. So, knowing about the reputation that organic chemistry had, I decided to "run into the burning building", for lack of better words, and tackle it head on rather than fear it. I guess you could say that my first step was to get into the right mindset.Next, I started early, before the semester started. This way, I was able to stay about 4-5 chapters ahead of the lecture. What I would do is pre-read the chapter to know what was going on, then read it again slowly and doing all of the problems. If there was a word or concept I didn't know, I would not move forward until I understood and mastered it. I sketched out just about every mechanism and molecule I could find. I have notebooks full of molecules and mechanisms. This was a serious time investment.So anyway, I probably spent about 10-20 hours on each chapter, depending on the difficulty. A lot of this was time well spent, although some of it was wasted since later on in lecture the teacher would emphasis certain parts while skipping others, want us to know about certain reactions/mechanisms but not even mention others. Although my approach was
