Physics curve?

<p>I have the big blue collegeboard book for the subject tests that has one of every subject test, and the physics test in there has a ridiculous curve. I think it was something like omitting 16 or so was still an 800. Does anyone know if this is true for most physics tests or was this test just a ridiculously difficult one that had a more generous curve?</p>

<p>this is just a stab, but i'm pretty sure that book has a little bit larger curve than actual test, but not by much...but take my opinion wit a grain of salt</p>

<p>yeah its like -12 on raw score and you can still get an 800</p>

<p>45/75 raw score is 700</p>

<p>according to this book</p>

<p>Theres still hope!</p>

<p>According Sparknotes, you can miss 11? OR something like that. I'm pretty sure Sparknotes copies their table from the official collegeboard book.</p>

<p>but my physics teacher compared the Multiple Choice on the SAT II and the AP - and she said the SAT II is slightly harder :(</p>

<p>good luck!~</p>

<p>what the heck, no way. Physics SAT is WAAAAAAY easier than the AP Physics test. >_></p>

<p>surprisingly... SAT II physics was a lot harder than expected... some questions were as hard as the AP questions...</p>

<p>I agree. Ive done both, and the AP physics is harder....but yes there were some ap level questions on the SAT. Worse, it was without calculus (which ironically would have made the test easier...)</p>

<p>Believe it or not, some students in AP Physics aren't taking calculus. Not that I can imagine why. Calculus is easier than pre-cal. :P</p>

<p>If you've taken calculus, you can use it, right? I did on the one practice test I took.</p>

<p>yea you just can't use a calculator. i am studying for the sat 2 physics right now, and i don't think they're ap level questions. does anyone know if there is a formula sheet or constants sheet?</p>

<p>@auxsoleil: Hehe, your teacher's just trying to scare you to make you study harder.
@crimsonchin68: There's no formula sheet, you've gotta remember those yourself.</p>
