Best MCAT Study Guide

Published on August 10, 2013 in Resources

You only want the best tools, the best materials, and the best strategy to prepare for the MCAT.

So naturally you want the very best MCAT study guide available that will cover every topic on the MCAT, prepare you for test day, and keep you from burning out.

The problem here is that every MCAT study guide already created has been done without you in mind. Unless you have hired a private tutor to take your schedule and topical knowledge into consideration, it seems unlikely there is a one-size-fits-all study guide that will fit you with the efficiency and effectiveness you require.

Create your own best MCAT study guide:

  1. Start with a review of all the topics covered on the MCAT. See AAMC's Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences content reviews.
  2. Identify your weaknesses, and focus on review and practice of these areas first.
  3. Shore up you strengths or topics with which you seem comfortable by trying practice problems to see if there are any gaps in knowledge or analysis.
  4. Practice according to your needs. Do un-timed practice problems and sections with full question review to boost analytic skills. Do speed drills to increase rapid comprehension. Do extended practice sessions to target attention and endurance.
  5. Depending on how much time you have before your test date, do a rapid or full review of each of the MCAT subjects.
  6. Repeat practice and review of what weak areas remain.

It may be a mistake to plan all of your prep from the very beginning. As you study, you will find areas that you are more familiar with as well as weak spots. These self-diagnoses should guide your prep. aims to provide the tools for you to create a tailored MCAT study schedule that fits your needs so that you will truly have the Best MCAT Study Guide.
