Dr. Wang's Exam Style

Dr. Wang does have a curve so his class is more competitive. Students in this class should be protective of their resources and knowledge gained from 1-on-1 tutoring so they don’t fall below the 1 standard deviation cut-off on the curve.
Dr. Wang provides one practice exam for his students to study, but no past actual exams. Tutor with me for access to 3.5 semester's worth of Dr. Wang’s exams and explanations dating back to 2017 when he started teaching CHEM 241 to prepare you for the midterms and final.
Dr. Wang is a genuinely nice person who wants to see his students succeed. For example, he is known to personally congratulate students in-person who jump 2 letter grades on the next exam.
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!

  • Study Tips for CHEM 241 Exams

    Ask Questions

    Be bold and ask direct questions when you're stuck - there's value in wrong answers so you can recognize and avoid them.

    Avoid Distractions

    Silence your phone, videos, and tell family to stop bugging you to create a focused environment.

    Keep Going

    Re-do a problem 5 times - this helps cement your knowledge, and recall it under high pressure testing environment.
