Physics and Astronomy: Test Prep - Physics Major Field Test

What is the Physics Major Field Test?

This test consists of 70 multiple-choice questions, some of which are grouped in sets and based on materials such as diagrams, graphs, experimental data and descriptions of physical situations. The emphasis of the test is on the students' firm grasp of fundamental principles and their ability to apply an understanding of them in the solution of problems. Most of the test questions can be answered on the basis of a mastery of the first 3 years of undergraduate physics.
