Essential if you fancy yourself as a Part II Chemist, as this course gives you all the fundamentals (and a bit more) of organic and inorganic chemistry. The main issue with the course is the lack of coherence between the two disciplines, as there are a few conflicting arguments that become noticeable when the switch is made. The quality of supervisions at Catz, however, makes up for this, with the Lent and Easter terms usually involving one supervision in each discipline each week. There are a lot of lab hours involved, but the practical’s this year seem a lot more useful than in IA and help to build up a good skill set.

A good course, which often falls frustratingly short (in my opinion) of being excellent.
