I am asking this question b/c I am planning on taking Physics 1 next spring and would like to take the MCAt in April. I will not be able to take physics 2 until the summer. Is physics 1 enough? Thanks

yeah, should be. just review the MCAT books for the rest of it. but most of the concepts are from first semester i think.

It's kinda dangerous. You might get screwed if you get some electricity & magnetism type passages. If you don't take the class, definitely study this stuff before the test, as the last post suggests.

Although I didn't have the same problem:
I took Physics II during the spring semester (MCAT in April), but people in our class were really unable to grasp the concepts of force, torque, angular momentum, etc...so we didn't get to electricity, magnetism, and optics (most of Physics II) until after the beginning of April. My point...I made a 13 on physical sciences...most of it being physics. Just get a good review book (I used ExamKrackers) and that should give you all the Physics II you need for the MCAT! :) GOOD LUCK! :luck:

It varies based on the MCAT you get. Some are more heavilly weighted toward chemistry, some on physics. On the MCAT I took, there was quite a bit of second semester physics, actually (optics, radioactive isotopes). You can probably learn it on your own in a Kaplan or TPR course, but you need to be confident in your ability to do so.
