Is it just me or does TBR Physics cover many extra topics not necessarily required for the MCAT?

Having been through the book in pretty good detail, I'd say it's perfect in terms of what it covers and what the MCAT tests. It matches the AAMC list of testable topics. I think what may be unnerving is that many of the passages mix two or more topics, but that's exactly what the MCAT does, so it will prove helpful in the long run.

Specifically what subjects do you think aren't on the MCAT?

Here's a general topics list:
  • Topics by Chapter
    Translational Motion
    Kinemetics Equations
    Free Fall
    Projectile Motion

    Newton's Laws
    Forces and Force Diagrams
    Circular Motion
    Gravitation

    Kinetic Energy
    Potential Energy
    Conservation of Energy
    Work and Power

    Momentum
    Transfer of Momentum
    Torque
    Rotational Equilibrium

    Harmonic Oscillation
    Pendulums and Springs
    Waves and Wave Theory
    Interference of Waves

    Sound
    Echo Location
    Doppler Effect
    Harmonics

    Fluids
    Pascal's Principle
    Buoyancy
    Pouiselle's Law
    Bernouli's Principle
    Continuity Equation
    Solids
    Young's Modulus

    Electrostatics and Coulomb's Law
    Electric Fields
    Magnetism
    Lenz's Law and Faraday's Law
    Cathode Ray Tubes
    Rail Guns

    Electricity
    Ohm's Law and Kirchhoff's Rules
    Circuitry (Resitors, Capacitors, and Voltage Sources)
    Parallel versus Series

    EM Spectrum
    Refraction and Reflection
    Snell's Law
    Lens
    Mirrors
    Complex Mirror-Lens Systems
    Interference
    Young's Double Slit Experiment

I think all of those things are fair game for testing.
