Dr. Wang's Exam Style

Contact me for regular tutoring ASAP, and I can show you where Dr. Wang sources his exam questions, what he emphasizes, and what he excludes from your textbook.
His exams always contain a Wittig Mechanism and Intramolecular Claisen which tend to be worth a lot of points. The reason why I can state this online is because it’s seared into my memory from my tutoring experience with students in his class. Tutor 1-on-1 with me to find out which other reactions he favors!
Students have the ability to get an A or jump two (2) letter grades in this class by beating the curve with 2 standard deviations above the average, IF they practice all the old exams going back 3.5 semesters.
Dr. Wang’s exams are extremely straightforward and have 20% less reactions than most CHEM 241 professors. For example, he cuts out Benzene Birch Reduction, Cis vs. Trans Alkene Wittig Differences and the Retro-Aldol Mechanism.
