Preparing for an upcoming midterm or exam on alkenes?
On this page you’ll find 20 typical exam problems, roughly ordered by level of difficulty. Underneath each problem there is a video which describes the thought process behind solving the problem in detail.
It’s impossible to provide a list of problems that will anticipate *every* type of potential problem you’ll get on an exam. But this contains many “instructor’s favourites” found at a wide variety of schools. It’s intended to help you prepare and also to learn how to solve these types of problems.
I strongly advise you try to solve each problem *on your own* before watching the videos. You’ll get a lot more out of it that way.
