    Iam currently taking kaplan course. I just hate their topicals. They are just so ridiculously difficult.I usually get 30% of problems right. If I retake after reading the explanation,I still don't do well. I was wondering if any body knows about any alternative. I mean I need to take those since Iam really bad at certain topics like circuits and optics. I understand the concept but I always miss numerical problems on these topics. So i know I need to do more practice problems on these particular topics....so any help ,suggestions ,alternatives? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    can't say I have that much advice to give. Im in the same boat. Studying for the MCAT and taking the KAPLAN review course. The topical tests are hard and I do about as well.

    I plan on just reviewing each topic and just keep taking those topical tests over and over till the MCAT. I think its a matter of getting used to the type of questions being asked and grasping the information well enough to answer the questions.

    I just started Kaplan about a week ago, and I have done the Physics topicals. I got a 50% on one test and a 30% on the other, so I am relieved I am not the only one who is in this boat! I thought I was the only one who found them impossible!
