By Lucy Cat VINE VOICE on June 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is a new, first edition MCAT preparation workbook. The primary aim of the book is to introduce a methodical, step-by-step approach to the MCAT which can truthfully be applied to any standardized test.

Roughly the first half of this book teaches you how to effectively take practice tests. It first directs you to take a practice test available on the Princeton Review website. Then, it demonstrates how to correct your test and hone in on the problems you missed by using their rating system.

The second half of the book is divided topically as follows: general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics and biology. Within each chapter, there is a brief reproduction of the list of concepts which will be tested on the MCAT (similar to the list provided by the AAMC.) Then, it provides about 50 questions per subject area to practice with (about 10 passages and several stand alone questions per subject.)

All-in-all, this workbook provides a unique approach to test taking. For me, it's just a little bit gimmicky and the process a little time consuming. I'm not sure that I need a cumbersome rating system to denote the difficulty level of questions I missed. However, I might use their approach and simplify it a bit for my own use. In either case, for the price, it's a good source of practice questions and tips. If you've already reviewed concepts from each subject and are ready to try additional practice questions, take a look at this book. I would consider it a solid resource.

I purchased this book with the hopes of polishing my exam taking techniques after ensuring that I had a firm grasp of the material covered on the MCAT. I had two major issues with this book:

First, I found that the practice questions and exams involving calculations were too precise. Questions found in the book relied on the use of calculators, which are not allowed on the exam. The questions were not asking about the relationship of variables on the exam, but instead would ask for certain values with high precision, not allowing for mental math.

Another issue I had with this exam was that the advanced strategies offered for the verbal reasoning section are gimmicky and will only waste your time. I would not suggest trusting this book's strategies for the verbal reasoning section of the exam. If you really want to hone your strategies on the Verbal Reasoning section, turn to Exam Krackers. The practice questions were also dissimilar to the stems used on the actual AAMC verbal reasoning, making for less than effective practice questions.

I purchased this book knowing that it was going to ask questions that were harder than ones found on an actual AAMC practice exam. I was disappointed with this book because Princeton Review's way of making the questions harder was to use questions that are beyond the scope of the MCAT and make for less effective study material.

Decent books to use for the pre-2015 mcat. Strategies here are pretty useless; if you're already using PR strategies, you don't have time for any of this "advanced" stuff. However, wish I had done a few more passages out of here, since they give you really long passages. None of the other materials did this, so I was thrown a little by how long the passages were on the real test. Would have been nice to have done a few more like these.

Content was nice at the begging but actual test have many major typos which make it difficult to take tests since sometimes answer choices are exactly the same. Furthermore, the online material sucks. I took a practice test about 5 hrs and then it decided that I couldn't save it and the only option was for the company to reset it so that I had to take it again. The support was super cheapo too. They had to ask me for my password to verify that the test was frozen! SERIOUSLY this is embarrassing Princeton.

Should be okay, but don't depend solely on this to get a high score. This will pretty much become obsolete when the new MCAT comes out Spring 2015, so make sure you don't buy it if you plan to take the MCAT after January 2015.
