Re: Passage practice

I am taking the test in January. I am not sure if I am getting enough passage practice based on my study plan. Somedays my study plan just says to read some chapters which include the end of chapter questions. Should I be doing more passage based practice? How much practice are you doing over the c...

Re: CARS Score

Hi! So I've done timed CARS passages in the past but never multiple in a row. Today I gave myself 30 minutes to complete 3 passages and scored 52%. Is that a good start? I noticed I did the worst on the last passage...maybe an endurance problem or time-management problem? I did run out of time on t...

Re: Ch. 5 Fluids passage at end of chapter # 4

I was wondering why the height h is 1cm? I know the given dimensions of the cube is 1cm, so that would make the difference from the top of the cube to the bottom of the cube 1cm. But in the passage it says the depth h "below the surface of the bulb within the liquid?" We don't need the depth below ...

Re: Ethers, Epoxides, Alcohols

Hello, I just wanted to know if ethers, epoxides, and alcohol reactions,Wolff-Kishner, and Wittig reaction are tested on the mcat? Thanks Alcohol reactions are especially big. The others are all fair game, but less likely to show up. Organic chemistry on the MCAT is primarily focused on stereochemi...

Amanda Hey Amanda, Usually anywhere from 2-4 months before, depending on when you finish/are close to finishing your content review. You should be doing regular, weekly ful...

Re: Ch. 5 chemistry end of chapter passage

I am kind of confused on question 2 of the end of chapter 5 passage. Why are noble gases lipid soluble? We can determine that noble gases are lipid soluble from the passage. We are told that noble gases are more soluble in neuronal membranes (a hydrophobic environment), and that they have a similar...

Re: Biology question bank passages 10: Molecular genetics question

20) What can be inferred from the data presented in Figure 1 and 2? "Since meiosis I generates a primary oocyte and a polar body that are both diploid, polar body A must have come from meiosis I." Can you please explain me the reason. It says the polar body is diploid whereas the order follows as: ...

FL 1, P/S, Q2

A student asked us: "Wouldn't the answer be a moderating variable because the health insurance influences the amount of pills the patient gets and therefore the "strength" ?" This is an understandable mistake, since moderating variables do in fact affect the strength of a relationship. However, in t...

Yep, it's been noted for the next release.
