I'm a transfer student in 2nd semester Ochem. I'm actually intending to study computer science, but I love all areas of science and I'd like to work in a scientific capacity someday (rather than just crunching code in silicon valley). My question is this: I got an A in the first semester Ochem, and I truly enjoyed the class. How much deeper will the 2nd semester take me in terms of being able to understand natural systems? I don't plan on being a lab chemist (i.e. I don't want to do synthesis for a living, and it seems like this is really what Semester 2 is about). If I plan to work in fields like oceanography, or biology, or other fields in the natural sciences, will I benefit greatly from the 2nd semester or do I already know enough? Thanks, please let me know what you think! note: I have an identical post in the Chemistry section and I don't know how to delete it, that's why this is a repeat. It seems like this forum is better for advice than that, but I could be wrong. Sorry for the double post!
