The focus in organic reaction chemistry has changed with the new MCAT to rest exclusively on the mechanisms important in biochemistry. Along with the foundation topics from general chemistry, such as chemical thermodynamics, a good understanding of these reactions changes biochemistry into a story with a plot.
Bird's Eye View - Readings the conceptual chapters from your printed materials covering the cell, biochemistry, molecular biology, and physiology.
Conceptual Integration - Recognizing how the organic chemistry mechanisms operate within the biochemical context.
Testing - Comprehensive biology assessment within printed materials, specific assignments depending on whether you are using ExamKrackers, TBR, or Kaplan.
In Module 1 we begin a regular practice of reading from a variety of nonfiction sources. In addition to beginning our regular reading, we also begin the process of breaking down the CARS exam format as a form with its own set of rules. The better you understand the methods and intentions of the test-writers, the better you will become at interpreting CARS questions.
