    This was the passage that talked about elimination, alkenes, Zaitsev, E/Z. Since AAMC no longer requires us to bring "outside knowledge" for these topics on the MCAT, will a passage like this still count as fair game just because they're discussed within a passage?

    If the passage gives you sufficient information to answer the questions, then that's definitely fair game.

    I took MCAT 10 today and thought that passage was pretty straightforward with enough info to answer all the questions.. it's helpful to know what solvents to use when doing that reaction (1st question in that passage) but that's pretty basic o-chem.
