The favorite online resource (of our tutors) for organic chem is the Virtual Textbook of Organic Chemistry by Dr. Reusch at MSU.
It is VERY in-depth, but it also includes a TON of practice problems.

Another good university website is at UTexas. It has old tests that you can download and test yourself, and the answers are provided as well. There are also a lot of hints and tips on how to tackle O-Chem. There is a link to one page below, but be sure to explore the rest of the website too!
