Psych Qbank 2

Hello!

I cannot find in the Psych & Soc book anything about zone of proximal development or Vygotsky. ...

Bio QPack Vol 1 Passage 4

Hello! This passage involves a detailed process of reproduction involving a cell line that contains both a macronucleus and a micronucleus. I've never encountered the idea of a macronucleus and a micronucleus. Are these concepts ones we should have encountered somewhere in studying, or would I have ...

Re: CARS QPack Vol 1

Thanks, Mathias! Reassuring to hear that the first half of QPack 1 is known to be difficult. I finished it and look forward to working through the rest of QPack 1 and QP2.

CARS QPack Vol 1

Hello! I've done about 6-7 passages from the AAMC CARS QPack (Vol 1), and I am finding them to be significantly harder than the CARS passages I've been working through in the NSTP Verbal 108 book. Whereas I've been scoring 75-100% correct on the Next Step passages, I've been scoring more like 40-60%...

Chem Chp 6 - End of Chp Test

Hello! Chemister Chp 6 - End of Chp Test First, the passage states that Reaction 2 is studied, but the caption for Table 1 states the data describe Reaction 1.  This caused a great deal of confusion initially — I assume it is an error, as the table seems to describe Reaction 2.

Chemistry Chapter 5 - End of Chp Test

Hello!  I have two questions about the Chem Chp 5 end-of-chapter test. Question 1 The last paragraph in the passage lists chloroform as a nonpolar anesthetic.  While I agree that none of the other choices to Question 1 have nonzero dipoles, why would the passage state chloroform is nonpolar if it in...

Re: Study Plan

Thank you, Mathias! It would be helpful to see which assignments are the optional ones. If I can follow up with two more quick questions: 1) A study plan question: all of my assignments labeled "Complete 2 passages from the 108 CARS book" throughout the entire planner have the description "Complete ...

(For reference, my test date is April 24th, and I am planning to begin studying now.) My goal is to study approx. 20 hours/week, or roughly 4 hours per day, give or take an h...
