    My final exam on my Org. Chem II class will be a comprehensive standardized test prepared by the ACS, and I thought that it would be good practice for the OAT.
    There?s gotta be thousands of different reactions and mechanisms. How did you study so much stuff?

    Although OChem has a lot of mechanisms, OAT only tests you on a limited number of them. Here is what they cover on the OChem section:

    Organic Chemistry: Mechanism (Energetics, Structure, and Stability of Intermediates) - SN1, SN2, elimination, addition, free radical, and substitution mechanisms

    Chemical and Physical Properties of Molecules and Organic Analysis - inter and intra molecular forces, separation, introductory infrared spectroscopy, 1HNMR spectroscopy, 13CNMR, chemical identification, stability, solubility, and polarity

    Stereochemistry - conforma?tional analysis, optical activity, chirality, chiral centers, planes of symmetry, enantiomers, diastereomers, and meso compounds

    Nomenclature - IUPAC rules, and functional groups in molecules

    Individual Reactions of the Major Functional Groups and Combinations of Reactions to Synthesize Compounds

    Acid-Base Chemistry - resonance effects, inductive results, and prediction of products and equilibria

    Aromatics and Bonding - concept of aromaticity, resonance, atomic orbitals, molecular orbitals, hybridization, bond angles, and bond lengths.

    If you want the complete listing of ALL topics that are covered in OAT you can find it here:
