On the MCAT
MCAT questions that ask you to name molecules are fairly straightforward, but nomenclature is embedded in orgo passages and even in biochem questions where knowing the molecule is an essential prerequisite to finding the solution
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
