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.

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.

I received the 2014 MCAT practice tests which is no longer relevant to the MCAT test :( still a good study guide but the testing material has completely changed for 2015 and was hoping for an updated 2015 book as described.

saved me on the MCAT... just saying. its a good way to get your feet wet for what you will encounter on the exam ONLY IF YOU ACTUALLY FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. If you follow the directions you'll be set (mcat score of 39)

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.

I was also confused about why there were so many overwhelmingly positive reviews for this book since they sounded fake. After purchasing the book, this is what I found it said on one of the first pages: "Publish a review for this book on Amazon.com and receive free access to our online practice resources in appreciation of your time and effort." I thought this was a little under-handed.

The content of the book itself was okay. Some explanations were good, and I appreciated that they were as thorough as they were. However, I thought other answers had faulty logic. The range of difficulty is pretty broad, with some questions way harder than what I expect to find on the real MCAT (and hard only in that they required annoying memorization, such as the electronic configurations of various transition metals). As others have pointed out, there are a good deal of typos, but most of them are just poor sentence constructions, like incorrect noun-verb agreement or omitted words. A little frustrating.

Nonetheless, the tests cover mostly the appropriate material and I think this book is better than the Kaplan tests, which I thought had more typos and even worse reasoning at times. The best resource I have found are the practice exams from the AAMC, but unfortunately, those cost $35 a pop.
