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.Read more ›
-Book includes 4 online exams
-Easy to read. Concise text
-Easy to transport with all subjects in one text.
-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.

It's an MCAT guide. Not much more to say. It gets the job done, but definitely not for fun. Seriously though, ain't no one wants to take the MCAT just for funsies.Published on August 15, 2013 by Tennisacer001

The book has a great summary of all the information, but all the material is too brief. This cannot be your only review book if you want to do well on the mcat.Published on May 21, 2013 by Umar
