    I plan on taking organic chemistry this summer and it will be my last prerequisite course to prepare me for the OAT. After that, I'll have two more prerequisite science courses (biochem and microbio) to complete. I was just wondering what anyone's experiences are with studying for the OAT for the fall while taking new classes at the same time. Is it manageable? Thanks!

    I'm in the same position. I'll be taking the OAT during next years fall semester but I'll still be taking Pre-req's.

    i took the OAT even before the pre reqs. i dont recommend that.
    but i was taking courses during that time, and it wasn't too bad. you should be fine because you'll be in test taking mode. my advice is to study lightly over time rather than cramming

    I don't think any microbio or biochem will be on there.

    Well if it doesn't help to know it, why postpone your OATs because of it?
