    Hey, Kreeno. I already posted my replies about BG on two other topics, but here it is again: I thought verbal vas average - too many himanities/politics passages, but not too tricky questions. Physics was rather easy, I thought. Biology was very hard for me and for everybody else in the auditorium (about 200 people who took MCAT with me had same questions in different order). What did you think about bio? Do you remember identifying an oxygen containing functional group in a compound? what was it?
    a. ketone
    b. lactone
    c. aldehyde
    d. ether
    Good luck on our curve! :D

    Hey guys I had form BG.
    I think the verbal was very difficult for me. The reading materials were really boring and very tricky questions. As far as physical, I think it was fairly do-a-ble :) .
    On that darn BIO, too too many phisiology questions. I didn't have any clue about the heart rate passage.
    Lastly,I picked D.ether as my answer. :p

    That was a lactone (cyclic ester). I also posted my opinion of the test on another thread, but basically the test seemed harder (in all three sections)than any of my practice tests, but not by much. It seemed quite reasonable overall...

    Hey Jakethai, do you attend cal state l.a.? i know many people from cal stat l.a., that do especially well on the bio section. the organic professors are pretty top notch, including Dr. Paulson and Dr. Amir. Also, if you take Dr. Lopez's physiology course before the MCAT, he'll prepare you for almost anything.

    Awesome! I got that lactone one right :) I thought that was a bit outlandish too, but got it by POE (thank goodness for process of elimination). My form was AH btw, but seems to be identical to BG.

    I thought PS was pretty easy except for maybe the photoelectric effect question; what did others think? Circuits was surprisingly straightforward, and the passage about AC didn't even have that much to do with AC specifically, right?...

    And did anyone get a handle on that verbal passage having to do with irony/hope/pessimism/literature?

    ah darn!....now that I thought about it...Ether ring is a lactone. Darn I almost pick that answer. :mad:
    Hey Bruin4life. Yeah I go to CSULA. I have to agree with you that we do have a lot of good science teachers. I know quite a number of people to got into USC and UC's. Dr. Lopez is awesome, he is also our pre-med officer. :D
