I'm only 13 pages into the first chapter on Physics and there are already serious issues that shouldn't be there, because the wording is basically the same as the previously published books, except now there are silly errors.
For example, on page 53 we are given an equation for finding displacement as d=1/2(v0-v)t when its supposed to be d=1/2(v0+v)t. The equation is correct in the older book and there is a worked out example in this book that uses the wrong equation but prints out the correct answer anyway.
Then on the very next page the authors are going over how to interpret graphs in terms of kinematics. The graphs are the EXACT same as the previous MCAT books but once again the worked out examples are incorrect. It's as if they copied and pasted from the old book but changed the equations and examples so they would be wrong. In this particular case, we are to figure out an object's acceleration using a graph of Velocity VS time. The values are as follows: ti=3s; tf=5s; vf=1m/s; v0=5m/s.
Their work-through of the problem?: A=[(v-v0)/(tf-ti)] = ((5m/s) - (2m/s)) / (0s-3s) = 1m/s^2. HU?! Of course the correct answer (worked out correctly in the previous edition) is -2m/s^2.
And these are only the types I have caught.... Who knows if I have missed others.
In a rush to be the first to offer material for the 2015 MCAT exam, it seems that the Princeton Review has forgotten to read their own books for errors. What's worse is that the errors are from pages that are otherwise word for word the same as the content in the previous editions.
The book comes with online access to book corrections but none of these easily detected errors have been posted.
So be careful out there. Unless you have the old edition opened up next to the new edition, double checking EVERYTHING, you run the risk of either learning wrong information or spending valuable time googling everything to make sure the book is not incorrect, which defeats the purpose of the book in the first place.
