    So after reading over a few posts and examining a few MCAT prep books (EK Bio and so on), it seems like the MCAT is more about understanding why and concepts rather than problem work. Example, they would rather see if you know that pressure and volume are inversely proportional then say finding partial pressure of a gas at a specific temperature and volume.

    This is just what I have observed. Would you agree?

    Absolutely. The MCAT is a thinking exam. The hardest questions on the exam are those that require one to understand and make connections between various (sometimes seemingly disparate) concepts and ideas. The math/calculations on the test are fairly straightforward and simple.
