However, as a study aid, it left a lot to be desired. First of all - no index. I find this inexcusable. Part of my reason for getting this book was so that if I missed a question on, say, stereoisomers on a practice test, I could quickly look up stereoisomers and review them. Don't expect to be able to do that here.
The much vaunted practice tests in here are pretty useless. According to a study I came across, they don't predict your scores on the real test at all - see [...]. One reason is probably that the raw-to-scaled scoring system in this book seems really off; it's much easier to get a good scaled score in here than it is on the real MCAT.
There were also a few errors that just annoyed me. Occasionally there will be careless typos in science sections, like writing 10^6 as 106 or mixing up an HO and H - seemingly minor, except that if you trust the book you can spend hours trying to figure out why the answer seems to be opposite to everything you've learned, and get very confused. And there was one part mentioning that you didn't have to be perfect because on some MCAT tests people got seventeen questions wrong and still got scores of 11 - without mentioning that those MCAT tests had half again as many questions as the current test.
So, all in all, I think this makes an okay review of biology, chemistry, physics, etc, but you wouldn't want to use it as an actual MCAT preparation aide.
the bag that was shipped in was torn. i beleive it was not good enough for
a five pound book.
