This organic chemistry video tutorial provides a basic introduction into SN2, SN1, E1 and E2 reaction mechanisms. It provides a chart to determine which reaction mechanism will yield the major product given a particular alkyl halide or substrate. This video discusses the stereochemistry of some of the products as well as any carbocation rearrangements that may occur such as methyl shifts and hydride shifts. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems.
