Let me put it in the most simplest of terms. You're paying an insane price for 40 passages (240 questions in total). I was so disappointed when I received this book. 1/5 of the book is just a bunch of garbage explaining the layout of the PS section of the new MCAT. Another 1/5 of the book consists of empty pages. Lastly, another 1/5 of the book is just a glossary and a bunch of blank pages for you to "write notes".
This is a joke of a book and I would never purchase again from this company. For the ridiculous price, I would have just purchased another full-length exam. Think about it: the same price can get you a decent full-length exam that would have the same amount of questions while also simulating test conditions.
If all of the other "strategy and practice" books are the same as this, they must be equally garbage. It's a shame I couldn't go to the bookstore and flip through this before purchasing. I would never have purchased it if I knew beforehand.
- Huge amounts of practice. A wealth of passages, strategy coaching, and quality explanations for why answer choices are correct or not correct.
- Simple and direct language. I feel like this text goes directly at the strategy for a passage and shines a laser beam on what's important and ultimately, what can be learned from a single passage that will be useful on every passage I encounter in the future. That's really really excellent.
However, I wish this text covered more of the content. Psychology and Sociology is a totally new section on the MCAT, and while it's cool that there's a blank glossary in the back for us to fill in, I'm not sure how in-depth I should go on those topics or what I should really focus on. As a bio major who took essentially one psych course in college, I personally would need more instructive material in this book for it to be my only Psych&Soc prep book on the MCAT, but I'm definitely going to keep it around as a strategy and practice bank. And seeing as that's right in the title, it was probably their intent for it to be a really effective and intelligent drill machine in the first place.
