This webinar is the second in our two-part series on nomenclature and stereochemistry, a key main area of MCAT organic chemistry. You will learn about the different types of isomerism that molecules can exhibit, as well as how to navigate the flow-chart of stereochemistry.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Be able to visualize the stereochemistry flow chart in your head

  • Distinguish between the 3 systems of stereochemistry


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The difference between constitutional, conformational, and configurational isomers

  • Within optical isomers, the relationship between diastereomers, epimers, and enantiomers


On the MCAT

  • Orgo stereochemistry has significant overlap with the stereochemistry of biomolecules

  • This is a high yield and high error topic


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.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
