13-CNMR in TBR, topic for MCAT?

    I didn't see 13-CNMR listed as a topic on the official MCAT study guide for BS.

    Further, my organic chemistry class never covered this topic.

    But it's in the TBR and there's some passages associated with it?

    Honestly I don't give a crap about 13-CNMR, but is this really something I need to study?

      No one gives a crap about any topic tested on the mcat, but you need to know them in order to have a good score. C-NMR is one of them.

        You speak the truth. Well with the possible exception of some topics in anatomy and physiology.

        Honestly I'm just reading the page from TBR and not doing any passages. Forget memorizing any shift values from C13NMR. If it's not on the study guide it's not going to be on the test. AAMC is an honorable institution.

          It's actually no longer in the BR books. It was removed from the latest edition after evaluating its utility and considering its absense from the AAMC topic list for a few years now. The only thing that was useful to know was the symmetry aspects. An 8-carbon molecule with six C13 NMR signals must have some symmetry (equivalent carbons).
