UNE O-Chem Final Exam

Hello Everyone!

I am currently enrolled in University of New England's (UNE) Organic Chemistry (CHEM 1020) and am trying to think ahead to studying for the final exam. We have an exam every two chapters and then the final exam is all encompassing and counts for 20% of our grade (which could be a make or break it seems).

I was just wondering if anyone had any advice regarding helpful study tips for this exam, areas to focus on, overall final exam prep, etc.

Thanks for your help!

Good luck. This class was probably one of the hardest classes I have ever taken.

* Remember all of your chemistry rules!

* I studied/ reviewed all of my tests I took on that class and if I got any wrong I would review the content and make sure I know why I got the question wrong.

Take it one question at a time. I ended up with a C+ (or B-) in that class and it got rounded to an A-. Which beyond shocked me.

Thank you so much for your response - I truly appreciate it! So they put a curve on the final grade it appears? Congrats on the A-, very impressive!

Hey Educatemeplease, have you taken the exams and final yet? Are questions on the final from the exams and quizzes? and was there a curve? Just wondering how this course works. Thank you in advance!

I have not taken it yet and unfortunately the professor said the class format is different than it used to be so I have no input on it. She did say that there is no curve.

I really hope if they are not curving either they really stepped up the game of their lectures or lowered the standard of what they expect students to do on the final.


I used Chads videos and they were super helpful as a supplement.

Some concepts you want to be familiar with for the orgo final include;

Boiling point relationships, Electron density , IUPAC names, conjugate acids/bases, Functional groups.

aldol condensation, Jones reagent, Williamson synthesis, Grignard reaction.

Those types of questions I saw come up on my final. You can email me and I may have some example questions for it; jackrob91@outlook

Thanks for all info you guys post.

Im looking to try and take this class after I take the biochem class.
How many hours per week did you find you had to study? And did you take the entire 16 weeks to complete or sooner?

Also, how impossible would this course be to take without the full year of gen chem prior? I know the concepts build on the foundation, but did you find that you would not have been able to take it, had you not taken the year of chemistry prior? Or would it have just required more studying?

Thanks!

Hey op, how was the final? I'm in the class now and should take the final this weekend. Was it rough? Truly no curve? 9&10 test killed my grade, and I thought I was doing well on it...
