    I was wondering if the EK organic chemistry covers everything on the MCAT as I have noticed that there are some rxns that we did in our organic class that are not in that book. (I know that since alkenes are not included on the MCAT anymore, i can skip that)

    You do NOT need to know all the reactions you learned in O-chem. Really, except for a couple reactions, you'd be fine just knowing how function groups work. Well, that along with the basics (acid, base, nuc, elec).

    If it's not in EK, it's not on the MCAT.

    If you're going to use those books, you have to have 100% confidence in them.
