    For those whom have already taken the PCAT

    On stoichiometry problems, will they provide you with the atomic weights of the atoms or will the have to be memorized?

    i read in another post that we should know the MW of the "common" elements, although I would think they give you the MW's for anything they give you...

    Anything uncommon they usually give, but you're expected to know C, N, O, H and their atomic weights and numbers.

    I just assumed they would provide all MW's since the MCAT does...
    But it makes sense for Pharm's to know common MW's moreso than Meds, I guess.

    Plus you learn those common elements through repetition in GenChem
