I have been out of college 20 years and just took the MCAT in January and got a 32 after 5 months of review with these excellent books. I am very happy with that score. I would cut out a chapter and read it on the train to work. When I finished one complete subject book I would take one actual AMCAS practice exam on the computer. Once you finish all four practice books then just do one practice test a week and in the interim of the week review chapters that you didn't score well in the prior week. Continue until test and you will get your best personal score. In my opinion the last part of each subject book "High Yield Problems" is not worth the time and you are better off taking the practice exams over and over.

I plan to take the MCAT this coming May and I must say, these books are incredible. Due to my financial situation, I can't afford to take the Kaplan courses so purchasing these books was the next best thing. I have glanced over all the books and have currently started delving into the general chemistry book, it has become an invaluable asset to me. The books relate difficult concepts with and without the scientific jargon necessary for the MCAT. The books cover material that was loosely covered in my studies here at college. I really like how it gets straight to the point and how there are practice questions at the end of each chapter with complete explanations of both correct and incorrect answers. If you buy nothing else in preparation for the MCAT, buy this!

There are a couple errors in the material of the books, but it is not in every chapter. Kaplan has come a long way from the beginning. These books are not only easy to study from and cover all topics on the MCAT, they are easy on the eyes and allow for optimal reading. Color diagrams and pictures only add to the +. A lot of questions they have in the books, they use in their $1,500 prep course. I highly recommend these books and a complement to other forms of MCAT study.

I am happy with this review so far. I am half-way through the physics books with practice problems and am looking forward to practicing the high-yield problems as well. There are definitely some errors, but I imagine that the people reading this book can look past them and accept this book for the great tool that it is. Throughout most of the book, the author integrates comical situations with the concepts and helps the reader get through some of the more drab equations. I would definitely recommend this set of books for post-bacs or people who need a thorough review after being out of the classes for a little while. It has been 5 years since I was last in Physics and Chemistry, so I am going through the book thoroughly.

These books provide a solid background for the MCAT. The descriptions are clear and diagrams make it easy to understand. My main problem with these books is that they are filled with errors and typos. Different passages in the text contradict each other, there are answers to problems with incorrect math, and sometimes the answers they give are just wrong. If your looking for a book to help review and get some useful tips then this might work. If however, you don't have a strong background in science/math I would not suggest these books. It is both frustrating yet fun to see how many errors you can find. There is at least one error/chapter that I have found so far.

Kaplan is good, but I thought they did have some typo and wrong answers to some practice questions. The book makes you think and that is what the MCAT is designed to do. The book has too much conversation and it doesn't tell you directly need to know info. It's almost like you have to search though all this extra unneeded information.

A lot of people are looking for a magic wand for the MCAT, but really you just have to sit down and study your hiny off... These books are enough information to prepare someone well for the MCAT withOUT a class if they are willing to put the time into studying.

I am giving it a 4 instead of a 5 because I don't think the reading portion was very helpful. I also think if you are looking to do well on the writing portion (I got into plenty of med schools with a really low writing score), you should probably consider a tutor instead of these books (they don't give you feedback on written essays, so it's hard to improve with just these books).

Overall, I had to reference by biochem, bio, and organic books a few times, but for the most part these books boil it down into manageable amount of info to do well on the MCAT.

I am about to start my first medical school classes tomorrow, and these books were a great resource I used to help get me into the next step of my academic career. In preparing for the MCAT, one has many options to choose from with a wide range of prices to pay and different advantages that fit everyone's learning style differently. I was debating on whether to take a multi-session course or study on my own. In my experience from taking a multi-session course, the information that I learn is no different and the practice tests are the same as the ones inside the book. Most of the work from the courses are done outside of attendance too so, therefore, I have no reason to spend almost a thousand dollars on a set of courses when I could just use a set a books and study on my own. These set of books are really useful because they cover everything that you need to know for the test. I studied these books from cover to cover over the summer before the test and received a 30. Of course one could also use these books and get another score so it really takes the motivation, focus, and discipline. The books have everything you need to know.
