Jeffrey Louis Rosenspanabout this book: Through the exploration of 120 Equations and 25 Challenge Questions, this Guide to MCAT Physics will strengthen your content and your confidence.
Become an expert at MCAT Physics with professional tips, analysis, and advice. These never-before-seen questions will make you think creatively about Physics and help you gain a deep understanding of the material.
Message from the Author:
Most successful premedical students know the material well. They can recite the seven hormones of the anterior pituitary gland and they can list the major splitting factors in proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Unfortunately, that content is merely the setting for the complicated, confusing, and downright awful things that the MCAT has in store for you. The MCAT is not testing your knowledge; it assumes you know your stuff. Instead, it is asking you to demonstrate deduction, induction, abductive reasoning, contraposition, and a slew of other logical tools that are not taught very well at the undergraduate level. Content is not enough.
The most common frustration in MCAT preparation is this: "I know the content, but I just can't seem to figure out how to use it!"
That is the goal of this guide: to help you prepare to use what you know!
Over these seventy pages, we explore the MCAT's most high-yield physics concepts. You will see equations that are familiar, equations that are not-so-familiar, and equations that have been twisted and bent until they're not at all recognizable. The ability to manipulate formulas is a crucial MCAT tool, and this guide will help you get there. It is not enough to understand that torque equals radius times force, every premedical student knows that. This guide was written to show you that you can do surprising things, such as add torque to kinetic energy because they both have the same units. You can lower torque by shifting the force to a slight angle or balance the counterclockwise motion with some clockwise force from friction or gravity. Get creative, consider all options. The ability to make the equations work for you is a powerful tool.
The MCAT is tough, and medicine is much tougher, but I promise you can handle it. Read through this guide, make notes, tackle the demonstration problems, and practice, practice, practice. You'll be fine, I believe in you.
