hey I have a physics test coming up and a final soon after. I was wondering how you guys study for physics tests. It's just Newtonian mechanics and the test is pretty much free response problems. How do you guys study for these types of tests?

Well, I managed to get through AP MECH and AP E and M in the same year. Although it was a struggle at first, what I did was exam level practice FRQ questions every day. Over time, the logical thinking processes needed to find the solutions to these problems, became easier and easier, until I was confident with my grasp at approaching these problems and applying the concepts learned in class to effectively solve them. 

So in conclusion, Just PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE the FRQ. WEEKS or EVEN MONTHS before the exam!
