Summary: Most MCAT prep books do little more than list and explain terms and equations selected from science textbooks that you probably already own. Memorizing the entire content of such books is unlikely to significantly improve your MCAT score because the MCAT emphasizes the understanding of concepts over the memorization of terms and equations. This book goes beyond a typical textbook in its explanation of basic science. Drawing from his extensive MCAT experience, Jonatha ...show moren Orsay offers insight into the concepts behind those terms and equations. This book will teach you how to think MCAT.
Flip through the pages of this book and the books of our competitors. In their books you'll find many equations and definitions of terms. Their recipe for a prep book appears to us as: "take one textbook and just add water". In our book, you will find only the equations you'll need for the MCAT supported by copious explanation and revealing insights. You will learn things about basic science that you never knew. If you're looking for a science textbook, then we suggest you buy a real science textbook. But if you're looking for a book to improve your MCAT score, then this is the book for you.
Compare our exams to the real MCAT. You'll find that our exams use the same font and font size as the real MCAT. New passages begin at the top of a column just like the real MCAT. Passages and question stems are the correct length. Diagrams and tables are in MCAT form. Now make the same comparison with the exams of our competitors. If it doesn't look like a real MCAT, it's probably not like a real MCAT. ...show less
