    I saw older threads from 2006 dealing with this, but am I correct in assuming it's still true that alkenes and alkynes aren't tested on the MCAT?

    how is that even possible? they play a huge role in organic chemistry. it'd be very surprising to me if they werent, but who knows.

    I think it's one of those things where they're not directly tested, but will show up in passages, reactions, etc., etc. so it's important to be familiar with them.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. Older threads suggest that reaction mechanisms involving alkenes and alkynes aren't tested, not that they're not mentioned.
