SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I haven't started reviewing orgo yet, but from practice exams I've been doing okay just reasoning stuff out in my head. I know that really doesn't help, but I just think through it like: Okay these are the reagents. What are the probably rxns? Can the products they give be made from them? I know this will take time, but honestly if you can in practice, sit down and draw out the mechanisms for tons of rxns. If you can see how things move around and where the deterministic step happens, you can look at reactants and products and go "you're either this, this, or that" most of the time, that eliminates 2-3 of the answers! If you're not done most of your reviewing, don't burn through the AAMC's. I had the opinion earlier that you should take one every other week, but I've since changed my mind. I plan on taking an aamc every 3 weeks, but I want to save 4-5 for the last month of prep. I would recommend that you buy other exams so that your AAMC's accurately predict your scores. And come on! Decay is just simple memorization. Do practice problems and you'll get it. Quantum numbers are the same thing. They're annoying, but easy. Make notecards and review them. Save the brain cells for the harder stuff! And don't you worry about my liver. They regenerate, you know! That and I'm such a bloody lightweight that I'm more in danger of wanting to go to bed after 2 drinks than I am of actually doing any damage. Yeah, it's impressive.
