in regards to orgo, were there a lot of
mechanism questions? im kind of memorizing reactions n not too sure of many mechanisms- is this going to be a big problem? any example of a mechanism question?
for PAT- what sections in CTP were easier, harder or equal?
for Math, DAT QR section is sufficient? did you try math destroyer at all?
The mechanism question is just about writing the intermediates. Make sure that you know which intermediate in which reaction. They love to ask question about alkene, epoxide and alcohol. For the reaction, I would really recommend you to study the reduction-oxidation chapter. There are about 5 of them in my tests. Know the anti, syn addition too. There are 3 stereochemistry question and they ask about meso, diasteromer.
CTD is always harder in all section. I always got about 21 in CTP. My tips is to study this for a year. I use most of my bathroom time to do angle, hole punching. During my real test, I finish angle in about 5 minutes and hole punching in less than 2 minutes. I spent the most time working on TFE. This section is hard and takes time. However, as long as you get it. BOOM!!!
My experience in Math is different from you guys. My family has a history of Math, so, it s not a big deal for me but not for everyone. So, I will skip this section
