what specific functional groups would be most commonly known for the spectroscopy problems. what should i base my focus on? more of the alkenes,alkanes or aromatic and amine groups? is there an easier way to learn all this? im using kaplan but its not helping too much, should i use examkrackers instead to get the gist of it? thank you

ek has a good NMR section. It is really minimal and I dont think its worth preparing by memorizing compound shifts... just be able to look at a few different molecules like alkanes and pick which one is the right one via NMR... know proton shifts and integration and how to tell how many hydrogens are in the total molecule.

The questions are not complex and I would focus on memorizing IR peaks for certain functional groups.
