    save yourself the $100 and don't get CDP. Not necessary once you get bootcamp. Some people do like to get it for extra practice, but IMO, if you can master bootcamp, you'll easily get 20+ on the real thing. Their explanations and pictures are incredibly helpful.

    Everything else is on point. Chad's quizzes and bootcamp will suffice for both GC and OC. But then again this just depends on how comfortable you feel with chemistry. The real thing was much more on the level of Chad's quizzes and Bootcamp's Question of the Day.

    There's a free PDF of cliffs 3rd Ed. somewhere on this forum. Just do a search. Will save you some extra $$$ !

    Also, be careful not to burn yourself out! Read my breakdown for some tips and my mistakes. I purposely pointed them out so that others wouldn't commit the same errors that I did.

    Try everything you think is good for study, my advice - written materials are the best. You could use them anytime you want.
    Plus you should start right now :) August is not so far..Good luck!

    Use Destroyer, Schaums and Feralis to study. These materials will prepare you well. If you really need some praftice tests, later on you can get some CrackDAT to practice. If you master that, you should do fine.
