    Did anyone out there use Odyssey to study orgo for DAT?

    I just finished going through chads videos and only started using odyssey about half way through.

    Ive done Chapters 1-8 (Concepts, Acids and bases, cycloalkanes, Stereo, Eliminations, Alkenes, Alkynes, and Substitutions)


    Ive noticed a lot of ppl saying it was overkill and to just focus on the Destroyer instead.


    So my question is.... Should I stop going through Odyssey and just focus on destroyer? My test is 15 days away. (ahhhhhhh!)


    Should I only cover certain sections of Odyssey? or skip certain?


    How many times did you go through destroyer and what was your score?



    Thanks!

    I just took the DAT yesterday and I can tell you that the Ochem was grade school material compared to undergrad course exams (serious). Maybe one question I had to really think about critically. Keep it simple. Because the DAT test makers sure will (for chemistry at least, not bio lol).

    I have not taken the DAT yet; howver, I would say put away the Odyssey.

    Just go through destroyer 2X prior to your test and review parts you're getting wrong. I spent ALOT of time going through odyssey and now wish I would have spent that time going over more bio or QR rather than beating Ochem to death when at least 60% of what I've covered in the odyssey isn't really relevent to the DAT.

    FYI - the odyssey does have a good sterochem chapter but youv'e already covered it.
