Re: 2000Q Book: Organic Chemistry #1810

Yep, that's fair to say! The reason for this has to do with the definition of enantiomers as compounds in which every single chiral center has inverted stereochemistry. By definition, there can only be two enantiomers! Diastereomers refer to molecules in which at least one, but not all, chiral cente...

Re: 2000Q Book: Biology #152

Yes, this definitely seems to be a mistake. According to the question, the 845 should refer to the q^2 value. I'll let the content team know so we can fix the question in the next edition of the book. Thanks for sharing!

Good luck with your prep!

Re: Lesson 7 Error

Tryptophan is actually classified as a non-polar, aromatic amino acid, so it's not a mistake to call it hydrophobic. You might have meant tyrosine? Tyrosine is sometimes classified as hydrophobic and sometimes hydrophilic (it's certainly more hydrophilic than the rest of the hydrophobic amino acids)...

Re: Ideal Gas Law and Gas Behavior

Thanks for the question!

I think you're referring to one of the questions from the final quiz? It looks like the question is actually asking about helium gas, which has a mass of 4 g/mol. If it were H2, it'd be 2 g/mol, but since it's He2, it's 4 g/mol.

I hope this helps!

Re: Equations to know?

Thanks for the question! Here's the text from an earlier response to a similar question: I'm not aware of any list of formulas that includes everything you need to memorize for the MCAT. I'd say that you definitely don't need to memorize every formula that you encounter in your prep, but I'd note an...

Re: ONline TExtbooks instead of physical one

I know there are pdf versions of the textbooks, but you'd have to email your academic manager or mcat@nextsteptestprep.com to find out more about that. I used Anki myself and mostly borrowed MCAT decks that other people had put together and then added/edited cards as I went. Putting a whole textbook...

Thanks for the questions! Q32: Autobiographical memory and flashbulb memory are not one and the same.

Re: How Do You Study Physical Sciences?

Thanks for the question! I hope some other people will chime in with more advice, but there's definitely some good posts on the forum about different approaches people have taken with their review, especially in C/P. You might find it useful, too, to look at some "non-traditional" guides (even if yo...
