Reactions and mechanisms from exam 1 and 2 will find their way into this exam. Know approximate pKa values and how to use them. Review your homework; take note of reactions that you have used over and over again, as they are undoubtedly more useful than others. Take some time and classify reactions as either electrophilic or nucleophilic (use the first step of the reaction as your classifying point of reference).
