    I'm scheduled to take the MCAT in about 3 weeks, and I'm struggling with physics. I've been using Examkrackers and Kaplan. Neither are really helping much. I would appreciate suggestions on any resources that might help me.

    I would add only concentrate on the subjects of physics you don't understand.

    I've heard good things about Chad's videos as well (but I think they're not free). I used Khan Academy and found it helpful

    I love the latest TBR books. They explain things in a conceptual way and have these really helpful shortcuts. I kick butt at bouyancy questions now after not having any idea how to solve them before. One piece of advice though. Read ALL of their answer explanations even if you got a question right. There are tricks in there that aren't mentioned anywhere else. CIP, they have a great shortcut on lenses (and mirrors I suppose too) that now I can solve those questions in seconds.
