Well, I just finished my organic chemistry course after writing 106 new 
problems -- I can afford to sleep now.  I am working up some statistics, 
but I wanted to run something by this list. 

What do people think about some kind of warning that states:  "Based on 
the large number of incorrect tries you have made, it would be 
beneficial for you to get help on this problem."

Even better if the student has to acknowledge this message to procede.

Maybe I made the homework worth too many points, but I saw way too much 
playing around  -- there are many differences between general chemistry 
and organic chemistry because the number of possilble structures is 
somewhat limited.
