    Did you guys just memorize reactions? That doesn't seem to work because all the molecules are different. What materials are good for studying?

    I'm using DAT Destroyer for OChem. It seems to cover everything. Also like mentioned before use it alongside your OC Textbook and you should be fine. I've read some people say that the OC portion of the DAT Destroyer is overkill for the DAT exam, but i feel like better to know it all rather then to miss out.

    Orgo is about process, NOT about reactions. If you focus on memorizing reactions, it'd make your head spin. Rather, when reading any orgo stuff, understand what became how, and why, and you'll do well. I got 26 on orgo (actual exam, of course) just a few days ago.

    From O-chem class when my profs did go over all the O-chem reactions and why they work.
