Description and Review Review 1

MCAT 2015 - Completely Revised and Updated Edition

MCAT prep best seller used by thousands of students!

Higher MCAT score or your money back guarantee!

This MCAT 2015 prep book contains:

- 4 Biological & Biochemical Foundations MCAT practice tests

- 4 Chemical & Physical Foundations MCAT practice tests

- complete and detailed explanations

- CBT access (Scaled Score) at a nominal price available only for book owners

These detailed explanations help you:

- master important MCAT science topics and concepts

- assess your knowledge of MCAT 2015 subjects and topics

- improve your test-taking skills and increase your MCAT score

- prepare for the science portion of MCAT 2015 comprehensively and cost effectively

Sterling MCAT 2015 Practice Tests are comprised of biology, biochemistry, organic chemistry, physics and general chemistry questions in the ratio used by AAMC in the official MCAT 2015 test. Each test has 59 passage-based and independent questions that cover the science topics tested on the MCAT 2015.

Book owners receive instructions on how to access these practice tests online at a nominal price available only for book owners. These CBT tests simulate the actual MCAT experience on our proprietary testing platform that mirrors the official MCAT test platform.

Our proprietary CBT practice tests include a personalized Diagnostic Report and a Scaled Score as the tools needed for you to analyze in detail your performance on particular topics. The Scaled Score is generated based on your performance compared to other test takers. Use these proprietary diagnostic tools to achieve a higher score on your MCAT. --Sterling Test Prep

Your feedback is important to us because we strive to provide the highest quality MCAT prep material. Share your opinion with other readers by publishing your review on Amazon.com and receive free access to four online practice tests for your time and effort.

To achieve a high MCAT score you need to develop skills to properly apply the knowledge you have and quickly choose the correct answer. You must solve numerous practice questions that represent the style and content of the MCAT 2015. Understanding key science concepts and how to apply them is more valuable on the MCAT than memorizing formulas and terms which is unlikely to significantly increase your score.

This book is different from the majority of other MCAT science prep books because most other books either only superficially review science topics or provide practice questions with brief explanations. This book presents the science material in the MCAT 2015 test format and provides detailed explanations. The explanations discuss why the answer is correct and, more importantly, why another answer (that may have seemed correct to you) is the wrong choice. The explanations include the foundations and details of important science topics needed to answer related questions on the MCAT. By reading these explanations carefully and understanding how they apply to solving the question, you will learn important concepts and the relationships between them. This will prepare you for the MCAT 2015 and will significantly improve your score. --Sterling Test Prep

Format: Paperback
As many others have stated, there are many errors in this book. The errors are worrying since the writers' inability to correct the simplest mistakes probably means that they are unwilling to correct lapses in logic and reasoning that are portrayed in the passages and questions. That being said, a few of the explanations and passages are very confusing and convoluted.The quality of the material seems to be average and not as close to the real thing as the more well known books.

Most importantly and the primary reason for the rating: All the five and four star reviews you see are most likely fake or forced. Read a few and they describe this little-known book as the perfect book with perfect grammar. The ratings are also very recent like everybody bought the book in one giant flood. Go to the reviewers' profiles and you will only see one review in their profile (for this book of course). This signals fake accounts for fake ratings. Additionally, there are internet access tests that you can only get for a good rating according to some real reviews. This signals rating inflation and a very dishonest situation.

Given the "sterling" reviews from the other reviewers I decided to give this book a try. However I am pretty convinced that those are just the Sterling folks buying their own books from Amazon then leaving reviews. There are literally typos and mistakes everywhere in this book. How this even got published is beyond me.

This book is very useful but there are COUNTLESS errors. The answer key is not reliable at all so be very careful. There are multiple times where the answers are incorrect and you must look at the explanations to be sure you are actually correct.

I used this book during the 3 weeks before I took the MCAT. It seems to correlate well with the material that is covered in Princeton Review and Kaplan study books. The questions are very similar to those that you see on the MCAT. The only difference I noticed was that some of the passages in this book are longer than they normally are on the MCAT. It actually gave me some unexpected extra time during the actual test, which was nice. These practice tests really showed me where my specific weaknesses were. Definitely recommend if you are looking for additional practice at a reasonable price.

This book was exactly what I was looking for. It has 8 total practice section tests which is great for the price. The only thing to that needs to be improved in future editions is the grammar. While understandable, at times it seems as though it was not edited properly. There are also a couple of errors in the passages.

I used this product for my MCAT prep and it was very productive. I learned so much science and many concepts are clear in my mind now. I recommend that you do the online tests from this book as well because it is great experience and lets you practice your skills for the actual MCAT.

This book was a great aid in helping me learn concepts that I had trouble with and had great explanations to all of the questions. The passages are VERY VERY VERY similar to the real MCAT passages. This is a must buy if you want to prepare to do well.
