Flashcards for MCAT Organic Chemistry Reactions
Many students find organic chemistry boring and overwhelming. Those who do well in this subject tend to have good memories and the ability to visualize structures and processes in three dimensions. However, many who are not especially endowed with these attributes are still able to do well by reviewing with flashcards.
Flashcards are a time-proven method for learning, especially when the subject involves many pieces of factual information. Flashcards have two major advantages: the student must actively learn, and the learning process is enjoyable.
I have developed a software package that simulates using flashcards. It has a database of 201 flashcards, each containing one to six reactions. You can view the cards in any logical sequence you desire, and you can also shuffle the cards into random order to test your knowledge. There is no limit to the number of times you can do this.
