Great Review, May 27, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Reno, NV USA I used this book and found the questions to be very close to the type used on the MCAT. While there are a few typos I found this book a great way to review for the exam. Of this type of resource I found this to be the best one for OChem.

This book is a hasty review of Orgo, but it covers most of the MCAT material in relatively small number of pages. Although some diagrams are not very helpful, it tells you most of what you need. It is basically a good book if you are a time-pressed pre-med trying to take the MCAT in 2 months. If you have more time, I recommend reading over your orgo textbook once more and doing problem sets in various other MCAT preparation materials (the ones with only MCAT style problems). Hope this helps.

I bought this book and straight up did the 1001 problems in about 6 days. It is honestly kind of time consuming, but is worth it. Since the book has 1001 questions to play around with, it engraves concepts into your mind by repeating concepts over and over. If you've had trouble like me learning the fundamentals about electron withdrawing groups, electron donating groups, nucleophilic substitutions, nucleophilic additions, and stuff then these repeated concepts will help you remember about them forever.

Even if you're using other sources like The Berkeley Review, The Princeton Review, or the main ExamKrackers set, you should still buy this book. If you don't have enough time, just go to the back of the book where all the answers are (there are also short explanations) and open up an Excel Document and write all of the letters to the correct answers in your Excel document. Then go to the beginning of the book and start circling all of the correct answers from #1 to #1001. You have now just converted a book full of 1001 questions to a book full of 1001 facts. This takes way less time to review, but if you do have the time, you should legitimately complete the book.

I hope this has helped!

I took a year of organic chem about a year before I took my exam. I definitely needed a refresher course. The thing about orgo is that you HAVE to do a lot of practice problems, it's not enough to just memorize the concepts if you can't apply them. this book is AMAZING. It is 1001 multiple choice questions (200 lab-oriented specifically) and they are ordered by topic material. It's a great way to brush up on what concepts you need help on. I learned the orgo concepts from my old notes and the princeton review organic chemistry review book, but it's really the questions that helped me get the concepts. Got 100% on my orgo section :]

It does not deal sufficiently with reactions. The questions are too easy. I don't have a problem with the questions being in discrete forms since one needs solid understanding of the materials (through discrete questions) before being able to tackle passage based questions. But, after having gone through about 50% of the book so far, I don't feel like I've improved in my knowledge base in Ochem. If you need very very basic questions, this book is for you. I get the feeling this book was put together in a hasty manner with little thought invested in the quality of the questions. I would not recommend this book.

Once again examkrackers, please fix the errors present in your books. such as let's say #88 in this book.

Good review book, but mistakes can throw people off and further confuse them.

As with all the Examkrackers study books, the question books are an excellent addition to the study books. Alone they would be great question banks to study with but in addition to the study material for the MCAT these are great practice questions. The BEST way to study for the MCAT is to DO QUESTIONS!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I really enjoy the Examkrackers 1001 Series as I believe the help show clear examples of some necessary subjects important for the MCAT that could easily be missed. Also with so many questions, key concepts can really be practiced and learned well.

However, that being said, my one problems with this whole series is that it seems the books are riddled with errors here and there. As a student freaking out at trying to understand every concept, it's not a great feeling to be in a state of confusion when it is the books writers error.

I used this book to study for the new MCAT (2015). All of the questions are freestanding, so if you're looking for practice passages/timing help this isn't the book for you. However, if you're looking to drill concepts or to improve on an area you're weak in, this is a great resource! I felt very well prepared for the orgo section of the MCAT and used only the Princeton Review content book, the AAMC practice test, and this book for review.
