Thermo. •For the most part the exam draws from “Halliday and Resnick” level classical. and waves.Content of the exam Topics covered on the exam 20% Classical Mechanics 18% Electricity & magnetism 12% Quantum mechanics 10% Thermo+stat.10% Atomic physics 9% Optics and waves 9% Special topics 6% Special relativity 6% Laboratory methods •Questions test mastery of material from a typical undergraduate curriculum. . •Quantum and atomic physics typical of a 3rd semester modern physics course. E&M. mech.

I=40. The scaling procedure is complicated and tries to account for “bad” questions and the relative difficulty of this year’s exam compared to previous years. • There are many combinations which earn the same raw score. U=40 : R= 50 ‣C = 60.Scoring the exam • The exam is scored in a two step process • A raw score is computed as: C questions earn 0 points. Un-answered (U) ‣C = 52. U=0: R= 50 • The raw score is then converted to a scaled score.1/4 I where C is the number of correct answers and I is the number of incorrect answers. For example: . I=8. .

check work •A “game plan” like this will prevent you from dwelling on difficult problems and not having time to answer “easy” problems later in the exam. n=100 questions -This leaves 50 minutes to work problems you skipped. . Remember: the easy problems and the difficult problems earn you the same number of points! •Work out a “book keeping” system before hand to mark problems you want to come back to. No time to invent this during the exam. n=25 questions -t=60 min. n=75 questions -t=120 min. n=50 questions -t=90 min.Test taking strategy Have a game plan •A good pace to work the exam might be: -t=30 min.

Test taking strategy Get a good night’s sleep .

Test taking strategy Get a good night’s sleep BAC 22 hours w/o sleep >0.08 BAC = legally drunk .

Problem solving Sample classical mechanics problem x x Centripetal component must be zero at end points ✔ x Need centripetal component at midpoint x 54% answered correctly .

Problem solving Practice calculating for speed and accuracy } static frictional force required accuracy x2 centripetal acceleration 30% answered correctly .

Check boundary conditions.Problem solving Sample electricity and magnetism problem Don’t need to solve to get to the correct answer. These don’t satisfy boundary conditions x ✔ x x x 56% answered correctly .

Problem solving Two answers make no sense. Guess among remaining three? These two seem to involve ε±μ which makes no sense in terms of units These two are non-sense! ✔ correct 55% answered correctly .

Problem solving Sample optics problem 40% answered correctly .

36% answered correctly . The difference in the areas is roughly: Choose (D) since triangle overestimates area under actual curve.Sample problem Thermodynamics and statistical physics Since BC is isothermal: Work done by gas is area under curve.

Sample problem Quantum mechanics 29% answered correctly .

Sample problem Atomic physics 60% answered correctly .

Remaining topics .

Preparation will improve your GRE score • Know what material to study • Practice working numerical problems efficiently • Practice your test taking strategy •Good Luck! .
