So I just started my first semester in second year and most of my courses seem really interesting and I love what I am studying. My major is a specialist in Biotechnology at UofT(mississauga), and I am currently taking 5 courses: Intro Cell and Molec Bio Intro Physiology (with lab) Fundamentals of Analytical Chem (with lab) Organic Chem I and Introduction to Pharmacology I have talked to some people this year already who have been given me the bad stories. One of them said they dropped analytical chem because together with organic they could not do it. Another said that I was not doing a smart move for taking these combination of courses. My Last year General Chem TA, who was also TA for I believe the Analytical course last year said that I would do great if I took it. I sort of believed him knowing that he knew me from all my work probably better than myself. My question is if this is possible to accomplish? I know that I probably have to work something like 12+ hours everyday to accomplish great grades (B+ and A's) and I do not mind this one bit. I know my social life might not like being denied, but never had any form of a big social type in me except for hanging out with friends at school. So what are your thoughts on doing such courses together? Is it possible and do you have any good tips for doing well in them? Specifically Analytical Chem? BTW: here is the syllabus for analytical chem: Course Topics 1. Measurements and Statistics 2. Chemical Equilibrium 3. Acid-Base Titrations 4. Complexometric Titrations 5. Fundamentals of Electrochemistry 6. Electrodes and Potentiometry 7. Redox Titrations 8. Fundamentals of Spectroscopy 9. Gravimetric Analysis This course also has labs, which I was thinking of preparing for by reading additional methods from other peoples research and getting some more background info on the methods themselves that will be done in labs. Thanks for your time and advice.
