to SAT II Physics
way to do well on SAT II Physics is to be really good
at physics. For that, there is no substitute. But the physics whiz
who spends the week before SAT II Physics cramming on Lagrangian
mechanics and Dirac notation probably won’t fare any better than
the average student who reviews this book carefully. Why? Because
SAT II Physics Tests (and first-year university courses) do not
cover Lagrangian mechanics or Dirac notation. Take this moment to
sigh with relief.
This chapter will tell you precisely what SAT II Physics will test
you on, how the test breaks down, and what format the questions
will take. You should read this information carefully and base your
study plan around it. There’s no use spending hours on end studying
for stuff that’s not relevant to the test. Knowing nothing about
electromagnetic induction will hurt you on the test, but nowhere
near as much as knowing nothing about optics will.
