I agree with you. The Ek physics exams are incredibly hard. Sometimes you feel as if you studied nothing and took the test. :thumbdown:

Keep up the work though, we will all make it this april!!!! :thumbup:

Don't worry, we still have time! As others told me yesterday when I wrote complaining about my long full-length :)

These tests are hard. We still have reviewing to do. Practice will help. I also got discouraged from my first test, but maybe it will just help us focus more on studying!

good luck!!!!

The EK full lengths are all way overly hard. Do a search and you'll see that everyone feels this way. I scored 4 points higher on the real thing than on any EK full length. The aamc tests are much, much more indicative. I would view the EK tests as just some practice in mcat style questions.

I haven't really been doing that great on the EK Mini MCAT's. They seem pretty tough. Physics in particular. The "tennis net tightening mechanism" was horribly described (EK Mini 7). I wasn't sure which radius to use, frankly. It was vague.

But, I agree that we need to view them as MCAT-like practice problems that we can LEARN from, and not necessarily ace. Keep up the spirits, we DO still have 1/2 of the material to review (if you're following the EK home study schedule).

Good luck.
