Re: Section exams vs FLs

Hey Jenny! So when you look at the full length exams tab in resources, you'll see that there are 10 full length exams there. For full length exams #6-10 you have the option to take these as full lengths, or to divide them up and practice them in individual sections, found under the section exams tab...

Re: AAMC FL4 BB

Hey! AAMC FL #4 BB: Q29- So the popypeptide is 9 amino acids long and has been hydrolyzed to 3 tripeptides and no amino acids are repeated, that is the key here. To try to elaborate on the AAMC explanation, let's say our three tripeptides are ABC, DEF, and GHI. Because they are pieces from the origi...

Re: AAMC SEction Bank Discrete Question 25 C/P

Hey! I don't know if this qualifies as "weird" exactly, but electron configurations can be a little bit different in the transition metals. The key is that elements want a full orbital, or a half-filled orbital, these are more stable configurations. So for Cr, the electron configuration is [Ar] 3d5 ...

Re: AAMC FL

Hey! For AAMC FL3 BB6 based on you follow-up question, I think you got confused as to which part of the pedigree was being referenced by Yuqi. You are correct that in the first generation, only the male is affected. So the female is possibly a carrier, but you cannot know, and she would have at leas...

Re: Blood pressure in circulatory system (Ch. 9)

Hey! So a couple different things to unpack here. First, the cross-sectional area and velocity of blood flow can be related with the flow rate continuity equation where A1 x v1 = A2 x v2. Arteries have a much smaller area compared to the combined area of all the capillary beds, so blood flows much f...

Re: IMPORTANT: Approach during my last 2 weeks before my Exam

Hey! So getting down to the wire in the last couple weeks, I would recommend slowing down on full lengths. Maybe take two more (at most) in your second to last week. Then in your last week, don't take any at all! It is a long tiring process to do a full length and you don't want to burn yourself out...

Re: Solubility

Hey! You are right, it wouldn't make sense for something to be a strong base but also be insoluble. When it comes to solubility rules, the rule on hydroxides is a little more complicated than just saying all hydroxides are insoluble, there are some exceptions! Hydroxides salts of group I elements (l...

Re: Psychology terms: Differences between them? Example for each please?

Hey! Alfred Adler would be considered an individual whose views fall within humanistic theory. As a person, specifically he followed Freud and then developed these more humanistic theories as a result in rejection of some of Freud's ideas. It is not so much humanistic vs. Adler, but more that Adler ...

Re: Chemistry and Bio: Random Questions?

Hey! 1) The transition metals are a tricky group as far as accepting vs. donating electrons. Because of where they are on the periodic table, forming transition metal ions often involves rearrangement of s and d orbital electrons and this makes them more of a special case compared to metals. 2) Thin...
