MCAT, DAT, PCAT, and GRE Preparation Lectures

Publication Date



The purpose of this video is to help second-year organic chemistry students review the concepts and questions that most frequently appear on standardized entrance exams, like the MCAT, DAT, PCAT, and GRE. In this video I'll teach you the mechanisms and details of substitution and elimination reactions and how to distinguish between SN1, E1, SN2, and E2 reactions. I'll teach you about dehydrations (really just eliminations of water) and the stereochemical requirements for eliminations to occur inside and outside of ringed molecules. --Dr. Mike Christiansen from Utah State University.
