How similar the questions are to actual MCAT physics questions is a whole another matter. And in truth not too similar. Firstly, actual MCAT physics questions are often based on a passage, all the physics questions from Examkrackers are standalone questions. Actual MCAT questions vary in topic from one question to the next, in this book questions are grouped together by topic. So if you're trying to simulate MCAT testing conditions while doing the exercises in this practice book it wouldn't be a realistic simulation. Secondly because all questions are standalone, it's hard to set time limits for a number of questions. Of course you're always trying to do the questions as fast as you can, being as careful as you can. But taking the MCAT requires a good sense of timing that you probably won't get from this book. Thirdly, the content of the questions in this book rely on what is extra to the MCAT. So there may be questions that require a bit of memorization and knowledge from other sciences. In itself this is not a bad thing, but it should dictate the way you use the book.
If you have time, I would recommend doing all the questions in there. And then moving on to more realistic practice from other books.
I hope this was a helpful review.
The thing about this set is that you can use the books in junction with the 1001 Question series that they sell. I recommend the Chemistry and Physics for sure. I didn't use the biology, as I heard that there were some inaccuracies here and there. Then again, biological sciences was my worst section so maybe I should have.
The reason I recommend this all so strongly is because it makes for a very easy and coherent study strategy to follow. It actually makes the studying enjoyable because you are tangibly rewarded as you make your way through the 1001 Questions and correctly answer the problems.
I would start to read a chapter in the appropriate section (i.e. physics - mirrors and lenses). Then, after reading a few subsections of the chapter, I would go to the 1001 Physics Questions book and just do all of the problems up to that point. The material from the lecture books follow the same order as the questions in the 1001 Q's books.Read more ›
