3.0 out of 5 stars Better than nothing ... sort of. July 13, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to help me brush up on my biology for the MCAT and to get a feel for what the questions would be like. While this book does have some moderate degree of usefulness, I would probably not buy it again. As others have said, this book is FULL of errors! It's both time consuming and frustrating. At times I was convinced that the author (a 3rd year med student who hopes to be a surgeon, according to the back of the book) had no idea what he was writing about (seriously, take a look at the passages in the "Microbiology" section. 1) They have almost NOTHING to do with microbiology and 2) The passages themselves are very choppy and incoherent, 3) The questions seldom have anything to do with the passage.) The book is good for the covering the areas which you know almost nothing about (i.e., stuff you covered for a week in Bio 1, but haven't taken another class in or thought about since.) If you have knowledge beyond the Bio 1/Bio 2 level of the subject, feel free to skip that section because the mistakes will drive you crazy in a hurry and just make you doubt your awesome self. You will save yourself a lot of time and one big head ache. All in all, there was some good information, and there were a lot of questions, but I'm sure that there are better books out there. If you do decide to go with this book, just keep this in mind; If you THINK the book is wrong, it probably is. Don't sweat it. Move on.

UPDATE: For what it's worth, I ended up getting a 14 in the Biological Sciences section of my MCAT. I still think this book has a lot of silly errors, but I guess I would have to say that it definitely helped me improve my score. (increased my rating to 3 stars)

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of errors, incoherent February 12, 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is full of errors. The Examkrackers website has a forum for errata, but you have to pay for an "Elite" membership to access it. Ridiculous.

The answer explanations are often incoherent and the answers they deem correct make you question your sanity.

This book is an awesome practice tool. I have enjoyed it thus far. I like how it correlates with the actual Exam Krackers Biology Book.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Must Have This Book for the MCAT October 7, 2004
Format:Paperback
This book contains 101 MCAT Biology passages and 1001 questions overall. No other book I used to prepare for the exam simulated the real test as this text. My biological sciences score jumped 4 points to a 13 from the first time I took the MCAT. In fact I recommend the entire ExamKracker series.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!! August 5, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was invaluable in my preparation for the MCAT. My problem areas were the bio and verbal reasoning sections. I used this book primarily for PRACTICE on passages. It helped me increase my speed with reading passages and then answering subsequent questions. This book really helped my self-confidence and overall score.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST MCAT study guide ever! October 28, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These 1001 questions books along with the Audio Osmosis and their MCAT study package raised my MCAT score 4 points after I bombed the first one trying to study with Kaplan. Highly recommend for MCAT study, as well as physics, chemistry, bio, and ochem classes. I wish I had these books for those classes because they would have made the concepts a breeze. (yes, I am leaving the same review for all of the books I bought from ExamKrackers and no, I'm not getting paid to talk them up. They really are a fantastic study package.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic passages June 2, 2012
By GF
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book came about as close as anything to simulating the actual questions on the MCAT. My only complaint is that it seemed to focus more extensively on some areas (e.g., anatomy & physiology) than others, but overall it is a very worthwhile investment. The same goes for the other Examkrackers books as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Extensive coverage... but full of errors. February 6, 2006
Format:Paperback
I bought this book looking for a good passage-based practice for the biology section of the MCAT. From my experience with the book 101 passages in Verbal Reasoning, I was impressed with Examkracker's accurate represenation of real MCAT questions. However, I soon found numerous errors in the questions used in this book, and I confirmed that they were wrong with several physiology and biology professors. From that point, I gave up on the book, because it caused more harm than good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best MCAT study guide
These are the best books to use. Rather, these are all you will need, unless your background is not in an appropriate science.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good
The passages are difficult, but having just taken the real MCAT and taken 6 practice ones, I would say the passages are comparable to real MCAT passages. This was good preparation. Read more

A real review, unlike most of them here...It is a decent book, will teach you a lot of basics. Because I took A & P, I already know most of the material. Read more

Came quickly and was in new condition. The best book out there for MCAT prep. My husband and myself both tried Princeton and Kaplan. They don't even compare to exam crackers.

Bio was my weakest link of the three sections, not because I didn't understand bio itself - it's the wording of the MCAT that plays tricks on you. Read more
