I'm taking the MCAT next month, and these flashcards have been wonderful in helping me prepare so far. I like to carry around one subject at a time so I can study whenever I get a few extra minutes between jobs, while stuck in traffic jams, when whatever's on tv gets boring, while I down my 4th coffee of the day, stuff like that. There's a lot of information on each card, but given the level of detail found in MCAT questions, I think it's a fair amount for each topic. These definitely shouldn't be your primary/only study tool for the exam (TAKE AS MANY PRACTICE TESTS AS YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON), but they are incredibly helpful for review in between practice questions.
***UPDATE (AUGUST 2013): Use of these flashcards helped me get a 34. I cannot recommend them enough. That is all.***

These flashcards are great quality, and are heavy duty and durable to carry around. They also come with a metal ring to hold them together. The box that the cards are stored in is also very durable. The content on the cards is good as well.

I also have flashcards from Kaplan, but they are thin (think business card thin). The Kaplan flashcards actually came on 8x11 sheets, and I had to physically tear them apart myself. Huge pain!! I actually ripped a couple which is really annoying.

Pro's:
- Often include visuals
- Thorough
- Concise
- the cards are made on a good, firm material

Con's:
- Often they do not read like flash cards; there is a vague word on one side (i.e. enzyme inhibition) and then a ton of information on the other side
- there are no flash cards for physics formulas, just 3 cards with a ton of formulas on one side
- you can't highlight the cards, although you can annotate in pen or pencil.
- contains errors. I have only reviewed the Ochem cards, and I have noticed that they often refer to alpha carbons as beta carbons. Also has other occassional errors like mixing up a proton and an alkyl group.

Overall, these are good flashcards and I would buy them again.

These cards are an ideal investment. For $12 you can't beat the quality and amount of information. These cards are very extensive, yet organized very well and include diagrams and pictures when helpful. I would highly recommend them.

I didn't think helpful information could fit in flashcards but Barron's was able to concisely provide the best data for the size. This is a good study material for those that have previous understanding of the scientific concepts that the MCAT will test over. Its a must have tool.

I flip through these flash cards during commercials or when I have nothing to do. But only after I have reading the subject matter in the corresponding chapter in my TPR books.These flashcards just keep the concepts fresh in my mind. These should NOT be the only study method you use when studying for the MCAT.

Also, there are a few conceptual mistakes on these cards.

These flashcards are good for content review, but they have a bunch of information that you don't really need for the MCAT. So if you are looking for something that will help provide you with background information + extra information on each topic, then this is your product. However, if you are looking for material that is specifically focused on MCAT content only, then I would recommend looking somewhere else.

Like them, have the info you need. Just make sure you are using them to memorize, not to learn. I use them for review and I like them. They don't seem like they would break easily, and the ring is cool. I would like to get more rings to have the different subjects ready to go to school with me on different days.
