:)I just finished the ACS final for my o-chem class and it went well. I scored in the 98 percentile range. I was wondering if this test is a good comparison for the DAT O-chem section. Obviously it will not tell me exactly what I am going to get but I want to make sure it is not a lot easier than the DAT and give me a false sense of hope. Thanks for any input!

I took that exam too (it's the one covering both orgo 1&2, right?). If I'm thinking of the same exam you took, then that exam is definitely harder than the DAT, and if you've managed to score 98% on that exam, then you'll do very decent on your DAT as well. However, there's one thing you should remember. THE TIME LIMIT!!
Most people finish the bio section in 20-25 minutes. G-chem takes more time due to calculations. I usually finished it in 35-40 minutes. So, that will only leave you with 90 - (25+40) ~ 25 min for O-chem, which means you need to know your reactions cold, in order to score well on the real DAT.

Good Luck:thumbup:

I am sure if you got 98% your ready for the DAT ORGO section now

The trick will be keeping your orgo at that level, untill your other subjects are up to par.

Thats a good point especially since it is another month away. This coming month will be the first time i have all day every day to study for the dat. I know I can make alot of progress. I will probably spend about an hour a day reviewing O-Chem because I want it just as good if not better by the time the DAT comes. I will just do the Dat destroyer a few times and keep reviewing class notes and the ACS.
