ReKAP – Key Takeaways from MCAT Physics 1

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

MCAT Rockstars!

We had a FANTASTIC time in MCAT Physics 1 last night! MCAT Physics is a topic that can initially  cause many concerns. Often times Physics can be intimidating and seem overwhelming with the amount of subtopics and equations to memorize.  During class we not only went over the key equations and concepts we had to know, but we also covered strategies and best practice methods of how to properly breakdown and analyze passages in order to apply that background knowledge to the format of the MCAT!

Some KEY takeaways from our first Physics lesson!…

Equations and Units and Relationships, oh my!

Thursday, May 30, 2013

For the past few days in the MCAT SIP program, we have been focusing on the first few chapters of the Physics review notes book. We have been tackling topics like Kinematics, Force, Motion, Gravitation, Work and Energy. There is a lot of high yield material in the first few chapters and it can often be extremely overwhelming, especially for students who haven’t taken physics in a few years.

When it comes to the physical sciences, there are three things that can help increase your physics speed and accuracy.

1. Equations- It is absolutely essential …
