    I have the 2007 edition of the Kaplan PCAT bluebook. I've begun studying for the PCAT and saw only a very short, one chapter (25 pages) section of organic chemistry in the book. Is the organic section of the PCAT not very long or in-depth, or do I just have an older edition?

    I'm completing my bachelors in Biochemistry in May, and so I was prepared to see an organic section with predicting products of reactions and intermediates and so forth. Is the organic chemistry section on the PCAT just an introductory overview?

      Kaplan does not do a good job with organic chemistry. I think it is about 35% of the exam and isn't super in depth but way more detailed than Kaplans. If you want to really know the type of questions, it is worth paying for the practice PCAT by Pearsons. It will help you learn to pace the exams as well because time is a factor on a couple of the sections.
