First of all, some of the practice exam sections are incredibly difficult in comparison to the actual MCAT. It is Kaplan's way of challenging you and helping you know more than you need to, but sometimes it is kind of stupid to make the practice exams so much harder. Some of them I could not even finish in the time they gave. If you want to do practice exams, buy Kaplan's separate exams (which I still think are harder) or buy them directly from AMCAS.

I am going to break this down book-by-book:

The Organic Chemistry book is the worst book, which I guess is the best one to be the worst due to such a little amount of O chem. It assumes that you know a lot and almost just lists reaction types in a paragraph or two. I found it the hardest to follow. OCHEM only occurs for about 10-12 questions, but it's still important to know a lot in case it arises. Study a lot of SN1 and SN2. A lot questions dealing with organic chemistry are about knowing the nucleophile, electrophile, and what goes where.

The biology book is great. Pure facts and just telling you what you need to know. Straight and to the point: just read, read, read. The MCAT biology portion is a lot different than just memorizing though (although probably 6-8 questions are purely out of memorization). You need to learn how to break down experiments with your biological background. There are a lot of genetics and problems dealing with the expression of certain "things" on the biology portion. i.e. This causes that, which causes that, which then causes what? Learn about the heart very well too. Muscles (sarcomeres), kidneys, digestive, and hormones are big topics as well.

The physics book was my favorite one. I love how concise all the information is. No time wasting.

Format: Paperback
I studied for two months (about 8 hours a day) and i bought the KAPLAN and EXAMKRACKERS sets.

Breakdown by book:

-Biology: EK is very weak in this section, and I mixed Kaplan and Princeton review for bio.
-Physics: This is my weak point, so I found Kaplan to be better. I think EK Physics is weak.
-Chemistry: Either. Both are good: EK or Kaplan.
Organic Chemistry: Kaplan assumes you know a lot for this section, I think overall EK is better.
Verbal: This is truly where EK shines although Kaplan is okay. What really helps with this section is the 101 EK Verbal Passages.

I also was given a free Kaplan test course, and I used their tests. I didn't bother with the class: I just wanted the resources. I recommend reviewing material/memorizing formulas for the first month (taking full length practice tests on the weekends), and the second month take practice tests only. Kaplan has practice tests in the back of their books, so those helped. However, Kaplan tends to test harder material. I would definitely use the AAMC tests also.

OVERALL: You need to review the material and learn to take the test. Use Kaplan for the main sciences (bio, physics, and chem), use 101 EK for Verbal, and use EK for Ochem. Take a ton of practice tests before, and GO OVER YOUR TESTS when done. Do this, and I think you can at least score a 30. DO NOT CRAM, give time to study for your MCAT.

It is a good comprehensive review, not too wordy, fairly easy to understand. It has lots of practice test questions and teaches you how to work them.

I would highly recommend these review books. Like most of the Kaplan review books this a good series but you need to add more reading material and practice tests to ace the MCAT.

I took the MCAT last summer. I used the Kaplan books and the AAMC practice tests. I felt like the Kaplan books were very knowledge based whereas the MCAT was more focused on critical thinking. If I was taking the MCAT again, I'd probably still buy the Kaplan books in order to refresh my knowledge as they were very thorough, yet quickly summarized important concepts. However, if you're wanting to know what the MCAT exam is going to be like, then take some of the AAMC practice tests.

Format: Paperback
I just want to reiterate some of what other people have said about this series of books. Yes, I do think most of these books are helpful reviews before taking the MCAT. However, the physics book is COMPLETE garbage. The examples in the chapter are ridiculously easy, and then the end of chapter questions are so much more difficult that I found it hard to bridge the gap in between. It is not made easier by the fact that the explanations to the questions are not very helpful, and the concepts aren't explained very well in the chapters, so you're left digging for other sources to try to figure out what you're doing wrong. If you need to study physics before taking the MCAT, I recommend finding a different source than this.
