books

Hello, I was just wondering do the books cover everything we need to know for the MCAT? Or are there extra details in the content review videos?

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?

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?"
