Are these physics topics even on the MCAT?

    Sans a couple of descretes, I have seen nothing on magnetism, capacitors and circuits on the MCAT. Pressure in the form of Bernoullis is also lacking. Are these topics just not that big of a deal on the MCAT? I'm just not seeing a lot of Physics 2. Also, thermodynamics in the form of work, adiabatic processes, heat dispersion, etc. hasn't shown up at all. I'm thinking last minute study on these just to memorize equations, but as far as relearning...there are better things to be doing with my time.

    Really? cs, I just did AAMC 8 there was a reference to thermodynamics in one passage.. not too detail though. magnetism and circuits I have definitely seen, cant remember which tests though- I think u shd go thro them nevertheless, bcs usually for me the things i dont prepare are the things that show up:laugh:

    I've definitely seen circuits on the MCAT, as well as capacitors. In fact, my April 12 had a good 5 questions on capacitors and circuits, so it's a pretty high yield topic. And I'm pretty positive that the AAMC 3 and 9 had a few as well (didn't take any other AAMCs).
