Customer Reviews

Would encourage anyone facing the PCAT to use this to prepare.
CNYMom
I found the quantitative review to be one of the best out of all the books, as well as the chemistry.

As someone who has what seems like every PCAT review book, this is one of my favorites. I found the quantitative review to be one of the best out of all the books, as well as the chemistry. The biology section was adequate, not terrible but not out of this world fantastic either. Verbal and Reading comprehension, let's face it, are not the biggest sections nor are they always the most important to pharmacy schools. There are a few errors, but overall, a very good review book that I would recommend.

I studied this entire book the week before my PCAT and got in the 98th percentile. This book won't necessarily teach you all you need to know, but it's great for refreshing your knowledge and clearing up any confusions you may have had in those topic before. I hadn't finished taking organic chem when I took the test, so this book helped fill in the gaps. The practice tests in this thing are great!

It worked. The score was great after spending some time with this book over the summer. Couldn't be more pleased with the results. My son said that he found the academic content helpful as well as the information on how to approach the actual exam. Would encourage anyone facing the PCAT to use this to prepare.

Great for Biology. For math and chemistry I felt very overwhelmed still. I did fabulous on Biology, little above average on math and chem. Good prep for verbal and reading comprehension (this shows the layout well not content) and excellent writing examples.

Just took the PCAT today and was disappointed with how little the book prepared me for it. I needed a brush up on Algebra, Probability/Statistics, Pre-Calculus/Calculus as it has been a few years since I last took them. The book gives a very condensed overview of each subject, roughly 20 pages each. Some of the example problems were understandable, but as I progressed into Calculus many more did not have clear explanations on how to go through the example problems step-by-step.

The Biology and Chemistry (both General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry) both came up short for me as well. Far too many questions I came across in the exam today which were not covered in the book. (I finished Biology and General Chemistry last year with solid A's yet the PCAT blew me away with its 48 problems in 30 minutes with no calculator nonsense. If you do wind up purchasing this book I would recommend going through the practice exams and timing yourself--you will only have 30 minutes for Chem, 40 for Math, and 30 for Bio, all of which have 48 questions and no available calculator).

The reason for the extra star was I did like the section on the essays. Two examples of essays that scored full marks were provided, which gave me a good sense of what the test-makers were looking for on this particular subtest.

This book was very useful in my preparations for the PCAT. It was more detailed than the Kaplan's review book.

This book goes into great detail of the subjects covered in the PCAT, however I cannot stress how important it is for a publishing company to eliminate typos. I just took the practice chemistry exam in the book and found typo after typo. For example, name the compound C3H6. The possible answers are Ethane, Ethene, Pentane, and Pentene.... None of which are possible. Its a good book for refreshing material but do not rely on it.
