Re: MCAT reschedule due to COVID-19 (04/24 to 07/07)

You would most likely benefit most from reviewing them in-depth, particularly passage questions: Dissect passages for all their content, not just the question relevant portions. Analyze the study design in detail, and make all possible connections from the passage. For CARS, just do a detailed, deep...

Re: Chemistry Q Bank 2 #12

You're not interested in the net reaction really, although yours is a little off in the sense that potassium nitrate is just KNO3. What you care about is the solubility product, and like all other Ks, it is a ratio of products over reactants for the dissolution of the species, so: Ksp = [Solutes]/[S...

Re: Chemistry & O Chem; Chapter 5: Charles' Law

Keep in mind that I can only real help with content and study-plan related questions. Our academic managers can be reached directly virtually anytime (definitely during business hours), through the website or through EMail. And they are much more likely to be able to make adjustments to your course ...

Re: FL 9 #3

This is just saying that cos(60º) = 0.5 or 1/2 The rest is all standard algebra. I've broken it up into individual steps here: fD = 1/2 * f0 * V / cA Multiply both sides by 2. 2 fD = f0 * V / cA Multiply both sides by cA 2 fD * cA = f0 * V Divide both sides by f0. 2 fD * cA / f0 = V Which is exactly...

Re: Bio QBank 9:Classical Genetics Question #15

In addition, all individuals in the African stock were determined to be homozygous for a recessive allele providing resistance to pyrethroid insecticides. What percentage of the outbred F1 subsample will carry one or more alleles for pyrethroid resistance? The question is asking only about outbred ...

Re: Biochem Qbank 6 #13

You are correct in your understanding of Km. You however missed the implications that concentrations refer to the chemical environment, meaning this question asks "If there are a lots of aspartates or glutamates floating around in solution, what happens?". Since they will be competing for the exact ...

Re: MCAT reschedule due to COVID-19 (04/24 to 07/07)

I would recommend keeping any content review on your previous schedule, or only slightly spread out - and use the additional time for practice tests, QBank material, making sure you get time to work through all AAMC practice problems (including both CARS QPacks) and building MCAT-specific skills up ...

The newest reprinting completed in late March, and the course itself (that is: making truly "new" course students) launches in early April. Your print is from mid-November. Definitely do contact your academic manager though if you're either interested in switching over or would like a newer copy of ...

Re: Chemistry & O Chem; Chapter 5: Charles' Law

You are totally correct, although I am not certain which changelog you are looking at. This error has been fixed for the next printing, which all new course students should be receiving. For this re-release, every book was checked and corrected page-by-page and we can confidently say now that this w...

Re: biochem ch.2 p.48-49

Which intermediates are sent to gluconeogenesis though? And what is acetyl-CoA added onto? To be direct: Pyruvate -> OAA is the fundamental entry point for gluconeogenesis. OAA is indeed a TCA intermediate, but it's removal results in effectively 'interrupting' the cycle, as we are removing the recy...
