Awesome with Kinematics/Forces/Energy, but suck at Fluid/Waves/Electrics/Optics!

    I am amazing at Kinematics, Dynamics, Energy, Equilibrium type problems. I almost NEVER get one of these types of questions wrong. But when it comes to Fluids, Electrictricity, Magnetism, Waves, and Optics, I am crap! I probably score 14-15 on my good topics, but 10-11 on my bad topics.

    Is anyone in the same situation as I am? WHY is this?

    probably because u can visualize the former parts more easily...

    yea latter parts are harder to conceptualize, but with practice it should become familiar

    it's not that hard.

    the only one i would say is legitimately hard would be circuits.

    but...the extent of circuits on the MCAT tends to be V=IR, P=IV, and C = Q/V = eA/d
