The book itself has typos. Nuff said. But i like the way it approches stuff. I've used kaplan premier and i left a favorable review for that here on amazon based on their online resources.

Princeton review has changed their online resources. You actually have 4 online exams although 3 are book specific and the extra one is their generic free CBT exam except it shows up under your resources.
Despite the typos, I'm still giving this book five stars for the following reasons:
1. They are the only company that grades your essays and provide FEEDBACK!!! The essay isn't graded right after you take the exam because you could be taking it at 5am (who knows? that's the time i completed my cbt). But the essay grading shows up in about a week (i didn't log in till the next week so i can't tell if it showed up earlier). But right after taking the exam, it showed my essay score as zero for both essays. The feedback was specific with the person telling me what i did wrong on each essay and making suggestions for each one. I took the kaplan $2K class and essays don't get returned this fast. So to have essays graded from a book purchase, i'm impressed.
2. They have other resources such as discretes for each chapter as well as passages for the chapters. Lots of online practice for you to get used to taking the CBT. I rated kaplan highly because of their online resources and but princeton has done a good job matching up to the competition.
3. The content in the is presented in fairly easy way the reader is tested to ensure mastery. I actually found their verbal guide most helpful especially when it comes to detecting wrong answers. That has helped a lot in helping me eliminate wrong answers.
4. Almost forgot, they give an overal feedback on your performance.

I've studied for and taken the MCAT before but since my score expired I am back to studying again. It's been a few years since I've been out of college so I was looking for a book which would bring me back to speed with the concepts tested on the MCAT.

Pros:
-Book includes 4 online exams
-Easy to read. Concise text
-Easy to transport with all subjects in one text.

Cons:
-Not very thorough and missing material. (For example, I just finished the fluids and solids section and went back to an older text to realize there was a lot of information and formulas missing on pretty basic and integral concepts like Archimedes' principle. --Don't know if this is elsewhere in the book but if so, then there's a case for poor organization.)

I'm not really sure who this book would really be useful to considering it's very condensed and general; anyone who is really studying for the MCAT would know that is anything but what the MCAT is and requires.

AAMC tests cost ~35$ each. For ~50$ here you get 4 tests, and they grade your writing sample essays. I think this is a no brainer, even if you already have your favorite study books the extra tests here are a great deal for the cost.

This book gets you down to the nitty gritty. It doesn't waste any time on long paragraphs full of miscellaneous information. It says it like it is, and how it will be presented to you on testing day. The constant problems throughout and the MCAT-style questions at the ends of the chapters enforce the ideas and necessary concepts perfectly. Thank you!

Provides example problems throughout the reading to make sure you are constantly testing yourself and focused while you read. Very helpful review. A little intimidating though!

I really like how this book is laid out. I have just about finished reading the book and doing the practice passages and problems. What I like best about this book is the integration of practice / example problems throughout the text as opposed to just at the end of the chapter. I have Exam Krackers books which do not include many examples within the text or information beyond a surface level of understanding (they're great for practice passages though). This TPR book works well for my learning style. This book has helped me understand certain topics on a deeper level. My practice exam scores are improving and I think its because of my use of this book. I recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This edition has an enormous amount of typos, incorrect, incomplete or missing figures, and even wrong answers to some of its questions (In several cases the explanation was correct but the letter choice wasn't). It is also very watered down, missing lots of information and formulas. Having taken in MCAT in the past, but retaking now that the scores have expired I know that information that is on the test is missing. While this book may help you get started in your review, especially nailing down areas where you need more work, the Kaplan books offer much more in depth information, only lacking in the passage based questions with each topic. That's why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1. I recommend steering clear of Princeton Review in this case.

I used this book as my primary mode of study before taking the MCAT. Unlike most people, I only studied for 2 months before taking the test due to working full time and finishing my degree full time, so having everything in one boom was extremely important for my time constraint. I had also never taken classes on some of the material presented in the book but he information given was definitely enough to teach myself those subjects. The only setback was that I was not able to access the free practice text given with the book because it was more than a year old. Had I been able to access that as well, this would be a five star review.
