    Nothing wrong with knowing what alkenes are and having general knowledge about it.

    I'd just Wiki it:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alkene

    Here's the main stuff I gathered:
    - unsaturated double bonds between carbon
    - about 120 degrees angle because of bond
    - more reactive than alkanes (because of double bond...they tend to form single bond)
    - "ene" ending

    Lots more fun stuff on that site.

    Honestly, you just need a basic understanding of alkenes (and alkynes as well)
