    Oh man....i really hate these mechs...they're so long...so boring...so pointless. Does anyone know if I'll have to put up with memorizing long ass mechanisms in med school biochem or pharmacology?. am i going to have to know exactly how TPP decarboxylates alpha keto acids? im studying for my orgo 2 exam and it sucks sooo much, i pray that i dont have to put up with this again

    Actually, that sounds really familiar.. like we have already gone through it. Exposure to materials is good, but in med school you end up relearning most of it anyway.. at least that's my take on it. At least in most cases, you won't have to relearn the nitty gritty details of the mechanism unless they have some clinical significance I think.
