does anyone think it would be wist to have someone who is not familiar with the MCAT, but is an AP physics or chemistry teacher go over material with you for the PS section

No, AP is high school level sorry excuse for college credits. I would not trust some high school teacher.

Just look at a review book. Everything will be there and clear. You can do it on your own time, too, like at 4AM if you feel like it.

yup , i think it's a fabulous idea. physics hasn't changed that much in the last 4 or so years and more importantly what the mcat expects you to know is derived from the exact same physics that you did in AP. so why not get extra help for the areas you don't understand. it's the exact same thing as reading a review book or looking back at a textbook or sitting through a prep course to go over the review material. i would just recommend that you read a review book too just for the format familiarity and also do passages on your own as, though i'm not familiar with AP physics, i suspect AP physics isn't all that passage based. good luck.

Everything you said i agree with, i plan on getting the help then putting in my own tiime to do the MCAT problems

thanks very much
i need to hear some + oppinions these days :thumbup:

and i dont think MCAT will expect any more the what is covered in AP since it is really a 1st year college course

actually i [plan on giving my friend the EK books i have so he knows what to stress when helping me out
