    Ok...

    So i've done the whole ochem I and II thing a few years ago and remember how many mechanisms this involved. I was just wondering if we need to know the detail mechanisms for everything ??


    I see in Kaplan the initial and the final outcome.... do we need to know the steps inbetween? It has been way to long ago, and reviewing all of ochem I and II mechanisms would literally take way to much time.


    Please help... I'm losing it. here.

    At least from my experience, I did not memorize all the mechanism. Also, there was no question that asked for inbetween step. BUT, i think it's better to know the mechanism to fully understand the process. Any other ideas?

    YEA all questions I have seen actually don't require it. Just, if we were to look at all mechanisms, there would be HUNDREDS of them. Sometimes it helps, but you know what.... on a test you 1. dont have time to write it all out and 2. you probably would need endless amounts of paper!!

    so that makes me think only know some intermediates... but not how all arrows are being pushed around.
