Can someone pretty please post the raw score converter? I really need to know this information?

Is a calculator allowed on the test?

Are some equations provdied at the beginning of the test? If so, which?

What is everyone's opinion about PR's statement saying:
35% - Kinematics
25% - Electricty/Magnetism
10% - Thermal
10% - Waves
10% - Optics
10% - Nuclear/Contemporary

I dunno. Wish it was 100% kinematics, though. :)

Kinematics is easy. Study electricity and magnetism!!! It's 25% of the test, and I got into that test not knowing anything about that. But I still got 760, which I was more than happy with. Easy grading curve on that test. If you study hard, you could get an 800. I should have studied harder...

I've heard it was an easy grading curve, but I need to know how easy! Please, someone!

You can get about miss about 10 out of 75 and still get an 800.

do you think the quiz in PR's is too easy??

By Fender1 (Fender1) on Tuesday, January 14, 2003 - 01:36 am: Edit

I was wondering how accurate PR is when they say a raw score of 36 would get you about a 650. True? Anyone know for sure?

I'm really nervous about this test because I only took one year of regular level physics, and we only covered chapters 1-7 in PR's book. So I am in the process of trying to learn to oscillations, thermals, electricity, magnetism, waves, optics, and nuclear physics in two weeks. Any tips? What will I need to be able to do on the test?

to anybody who have taken the test before:
is it enough to prepare by using just PR ?
