I've just started taking ochem 1 so I'm kinda nervous as to what type of questions they are going to put on the exam. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Use the search feature to check for more detail, but you really should know nomenclature and E1/E2, SN1,SN2 reactions. Those almost always pop up. Knowing functional groups and reactions involved with them is also good.
nomenclature which i wouldnt say was hard but thats cause i have taken o chem 1 and 2
reactions- i saw a lot this august on the PCAT
