MCAT: Electrochemistry - Chapter Objectives

The MCAT tests your readiness for medical school. You'll need to know general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology and physics concepts for the exam. Physical sciences questions make up one-fourth of the MCAT; the other three sections are biological sciences, verbal reasoning and the trial section.

The physical science section has a total of 52 questions. Of these, 13 are independent of all other questions, while the remaining 39 are based on seven passages given in the exam. Each passage requires 4-7 answers. This section will test both your knowledge of scientific concepts and your problem-solving abilities.

All of the questions on the MCAT are multiple choice. Our video lessons come with multiple-choice quizzes so you can see how well you've learned the material in each lesson. These quiz questions help you gain experience with the types of questions you see on the actual examination.
