    Does anyone else feel like an absolute idiot when taking practice passages for the MCAT? I'll go through the material and know it well (or so I think) then do a passage over that stuff and get slammed!! Does this happen to everyone? It's incredibly frustrating. Almost as if it is hopeless.

    just thought i'd vent.

    Don't look at the MCAT passages as a test of what you necessarily know about the subject matter. The MCAT tests your ability to think with those very, very BASIC concepts in mind. Notice that, aside from those short-answer questions, the passages are never too in-depth and attempt to integrate various concepts.

    Good luck.

    Oh, and if you want to try my technique for the physics section, send me an email and I'll tell you about it. It raised my score 3 points on the practice passages. [​IMG]
