    so im taking the august mcat and had a question for all you mcaters. are we supposed to study alkenes, phenols, and benzenes and their reactions, or is it true that we dont have to have any prior knowledge of these compunds? i figured that i shouldn't waste time/memory on areas i dont have to!

    still a good idea to know them .... even if you can get one Q right because of this knowledge, it won't be a waste and it is not that much to cover in first place..... so do it

    Yes, you think AAMC wants us do well? Well, I have started presupposing theire intentions. However, alkenes especially are so important in organic chemistry that to think it won't show up on the mcat is false--pi electrons . . . they abound.

    Good luck to us tomorrow. I think I also have the right to void.
