Hi, First of all, I don't have much difficulties learning stuff for exams in general. Though, organic chemistry seems to be the hardest subject I ever had. Not because I find it too difficult to understand, it's because of the quantity. I don't really know how to properly prepare for my exam. We did stereochemistry, nomenclature, sugars and amino acids, basics of quantum physics to understand orbital theory, and at least a whole bunch of reaction mechanisms. It's very difficult for me to sort out unimportant stuff, since everything seems important to me. I find it much easier to study for my physics exams (I'm a biophysics student). I don't have to learn too much by heart, it's much more a matter of understanding principles and applying them. For me, it doesn't work that way with chemistry ... Do you have some advice? How do you prepare for org. chemistry exams?
