    Hey guys,

    Hope y'all did great on the MCAT.
    Quick question though: Is Physics just formulas after formulas? Any concepts involved? I'm pretty sure there are.

    Thanks.

    Definitely understand the concepts involved. Very few problem involve just plugging and chugging numbers into memorized equations. Actually many equations are given to you in passages.

    I could recite every physics formula in the book right now, and very few of them were actually needed on the MCAT. Definitely focus on WHAT the formulas mean-- ie, if you increase the length of a soundwave, what happens to the frequency, if anything? If a skier weighs more, does he acquire more speed at the bottom of a slope, less or the same? If you add a lightbulb to a ciruit, does the current increase, decrease, remain the same and why? Etc. Examcrackers sort of focuses on these concepts in a more general sense than Kaplan does.
