Re: ONline TExtbooks instead of physical one

I know there are pdf versions of the textbooks, but you'd have to email your academic manager or mcat@nextsteptestprep.com to find out more about that. I used Anki myself and mostly borrowed MCAT decks that other people had put together and then added/edited cards as I went. Putting a whole textbook...

Re: How Do You Study Physical Sciences?

Thanks for the question! I hope some other people will chime in with more advice, but there's definitely some good posts on the forum about different approaches people have taken with their review, especially in C/P. You might find it useful, too, to look at some "non-traditional" guides (even if yo...

Re: Chemistry Book Chapter 8 Page 180

Thanks for the question! Essentially, when doing titrations, we are interested in the amount of the species that is present. Typically, we understand that value as we have some volume of a solution which is some molarity in concentration. Both of those values are needed to actually understand how mu...

Re: QBook Bio #275

Thanks for the question! During prophase, chromosomes get denser so that they can be organized and the necessary preparations for division/replication can be made.

Re: Stereotype threat and self-fulfilling prophecy

Thanks for the question! I think it's definitely fair to say that they are similar and connected concepts.

Re: Lesson 7 Problem Solving Cooldown #4

Thanks for the question! I think the problem here is that you're thinking about this in terms of the total and not as a series of steps. AMP --> ADP requires 32 kJ/mol. ADP --> ATP requires an additional 45 kJ/mol. In other words, the values you look up cover one step only, not the total energy requ...
