    Hey guys

    according to the gold standard the MCAT doesnt test aromatic and alkene chemistry specifically, is this true?

    I read in EK organic chemistry that MCAT doesn't test benzene rings! I guess it's true, then?

    Yup, no benze or alkene chemistry. Go to AMCAS (sp) and read the topics they test for O-chem. They state no alkenes and and aromatic compounds.

    Not directly, but I'd still keep fresh on it since it could show up in a passage.

    Anything you get about alkenes will be provided on the test.... but they're still devoted a chapter by most test prep companies which suggests either they're too lazy to change their books or that the topic appears enough to warrant knowing it at least a little bit....

    Benzene rings and aromatic rings in general were one of my favorite topics in orgo, but I guess thats just me.
