    Overall, my worst issue is organic chem.. followed by electro-physics & light and sound..

    What to do next? any ideas on how to tackle these issues (any simple answers for any of the "big topics")??

    This is a pretty difficult question to answer. If you are having trouble with all of organic chem i suggest you have to learn all the reactions and isomers and anything that they can throw at you. I believe O chem is all about recognizing reactions and isomers and reading NMR/IR.

    With electro-physics & light and sound, understand the concepts and be able to answer questions based on those topics. Sound is not too bad because they can only ask you doppler effect and decibel levels.

    i actually got pretty good at electro-chem and light and sound. They didn't put one passage on either! :mad:
    There's not that much orgo anymore on the exam (knock on wood)

    just shows it's all about the luck of the draw

    Repetition is key. I went over my weak points multiple times until it stuck.

    Trust me when I say that I can relate. I hated organic chemistry, but I am doing great on all the OChem problems on the practice tests. The MCAT OChem is a stupified version of the horror I had to endure in college. Just know your basics really well and you'll be fine. Also, a lot of people find the OChem passages as the quickest to go through. So it might actually give you some extra time on the bio section! Good luck!
