    does anyone have any advice for a new student to organic chemistry?

    thanks!

    Yeah, sure. What do you want advice on?
    Be more specific, if not, just go read a textbook.

    well i haven't taken the class yet so i was thinking more about general advice. for example, some say it is all memorization but then it gets to the point where you need to know the mechanics and workings of the reactions since memorization can only go so far.

    should i just stress on nomenclature/molecular drawing and the movement of electrons?

    will anything from general (inorganic) chem help in this class?

    MgO + H2O will form, as mentioned above, Mg(OH)2. That's a base.

    Organic chemistry isn't too hard, but you'd be better off taking biology. In high school, anyway, there's a lot of emphasis on structures and the different kinds of organic compounds, and how they react to form new compounds. It is a lot of memorization, but if you know the mechanics and the nomenclature, which IS the memorization, you can probably get through pretty easily.

    If you want a combustion, get some sodium/pottasium/rubidium/caseum/francium drop in a bucket of water, and run. (unless it was on of the last 3, in which i have to say you might get killed)

    Memorize, memorize, memorize the mechanisms and nomenclature! Organic chemistry is just memorizing on how to name compounds using the IUPAC method, at least in the first part of ochem. The only calculations you do is probably during lab. Wait till you get to quantitative chemistry and physical chemistry, that shit is ridiculous. Thank goodness I'm not a chem major! I think I still have to take it htough.
