Please someone say that this is true! I'll look at the list of topics provided by the AAMC when I have the time.

I skipped the pages. As far as I know the removal of alkenes from the MCAT is a pretty new thing, newer then when the EK books were done. I don't know if the EK books are edited or were edited recently but my copies are pretty old.

I dunno either, that mcat list from aamc says 2003 on it if you check carefully on the bottom. The 6th edition book is from 2005, likewise, my tpr book for 2006 includes alkenes and so does the kaplan comp review book for 2006...alkene is the most basic stuff anyway so don't worry too much about it...study it last or something...but it's not difficult enough that you should just skip it...u never know.
