  1. Hello everything, I know this is overkill at this point because everyone asks but I have a general question about TPR (2nd edition) vs Kaplan (2018-2019). I've been reading a lot of conflicting information regarding which mcat book set has a higher level of detail. Some say Kaplan has more information while others say TPR has more information. Can anyone shed some light on this issue for me please. Does one book set indeed contain more info than the other or does it depend on the specific subject. If so, any insight would be greatly appreciated. I am not worried about an overkill of information (imo it's better to have extra information rather than less -- I just don't want to miss any information. I also need a relatively comprehensive overview in org and physics as I've never taken org and I'm generally starting to forget the second physics material). Therefore, I want to use the set that has more information/detail for each subject as my primary source (obviously supplemented with other sources such as KA, AAMC, etc.). In advance, thank you!
  2. Hi everyone, I just started studying from Kaplan books and reached a minor dilemma. I covered the first chapter for Biochem today, and wasn't able to find a series of corresponding practice questions that would allow me to consolidate all the info I've read. I have practice passages from Next Step practice books, but they are do not have a focus on particular MCAT topics. Does anyone have any suggestions for practice materials that focus on particular topics? I strongly feel this would help me consolidate the concepts I've read. I know Khan academy has some questions, but I think there are only a few per topic! ...Also, as a side note, I am preparing for the Jan 25th MCAT and I am located in Montreal. If anyone is in the same area and would like to study together, PM me! Thanks, D
  3. Hello, I'm thinking of signing up with either Kaplan or TPR to help me with my application process and interview process. I made the mistake of just taking a prep course with Kaplan without doing my research on which would be the best company to go with for MCAT prep so I don't want to repeat my mistake. Has anyone done the application help services with either company, or another company? Would you say it was worth the 1.5K? Were they helpful at all? Are there any guarantees? Which company would you recommend if not Kaplan or TPR or Prep101? Thanks! Dee

  5. I thought I would give people an opportunity to snag these books before I recycle them. I realize they may not be relevant anymore, therefore, I will keep them for another week before sending them to be made into toilet paper and coffee cup sleeves. I have a series of Kaplan and EK prep books. They include notes on all of the relevant sections of the old MCAT except the Kaplan VR (I lost that one somehow). Included, I also have a series of EK 1001 Questions books. Example of the books: Kaplan Test Prep: https://www.amazon.com/Kaplan-MCAT-Biology-Review-Notes/dp/1609785584 EK: https://www.amazon.com/Examkrackers-Complete-MCAT-Study-Pkg/dp/1893858499 1001 Questions: https://www.amazon.ca/Examkrackers-1001-Questions-McAt-Chemistry/dp/1893858227 Message me if interested. We can arrange to meet somewhere in the Vancouver area.
  6. Hey everyone. I've read through a couple forums regarding MCAT prep courses but there's so many books and sets that are available that I'm still not sure what would be a good fit. Of course, I know that it depends for everyone but I really just want something that's good quality and is able to make concepts clear with lots of practice problems. I don't even know if I should do any in-class prep either.. And yes, I've looked at the different companies' websites but again, there's so many possible sets and books and classes and all I see are $$$$ that I'm getting really stressed out now. I'm planning on writing the MCAT this August 2016 so I really need to get some books and start studying. Tips and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Hi All, due to a miscommunication I have received the 2016 "7-book Subject Review, Lesson Book, and High-Yield Problem Solving Guide" from Kaplan. They are brand new, I haven't even opened the box they were shipped in. Looking to sell them for $150 OBO. I am in Calgary and it's pickup only!

  10. Has anyone had any experience with Prep101's MCAT course? For the same price they offer more classroom hours and more practice exams. Also, they choose their instructors in a highly competitive way. This leads me to believe they would be the best bet, but am scared because they don't have the same experience as the others. Any input would be appreciated!
  11. Hey everyone! I plan on writing the MCAT in August 2016. I plan on not working at all between the end of April-August. I would ideally be studying for minimum 5 hours everyday. The plan right now is 8 hours of study/day. I have read tons of different posts about how/what to study for the MCAT. From what I've read, here's is what I thought I would do (by all means, correct me if you disagree - I'd appreciate any advice) : 1) Kaplan MCAT Complete 7-Book Subject Review. - I would review the entire content of these books first. I heard that these books are very detailed, so this would give me a good understanding of all the concepts covered. 2) Examkrackers MCAT Study Package. - I read that the Examkrackers prep material are much lighter, and focus more on the 'important stuff'. I would then read over these books to really develop my understanding over the material. ** Do you think it's too much to try to tackle both of these prep sets? Am I underestimating how much time they are both going to take? If you do think that this is too much for content review, then which prep material would you recommend and why?* I understand that it is super important to not just do content review, and you have to practice practice practice. Im planning on purchasing the Official Mcat Sample Test, Official Online Guide Questions, The Question Packs, Kaplan 528, Kaplan Practice Tests, TPR Practice Tests & Khan Academy. Does anyone have any other recommendations for passage practice? Would love to get as much feedback as possible!! I'm feeling very overwhelmed with all the prep material out there and would just love to hear what has worked for other people. Thanks so much!
  12. Hey, I'm entering my 2nd year UG at Western's BMSc. I'm planning on writing my MCAT next summer (after 2nd year). 1. I was planning on "lowkey" studying this school year, basically reading through a set of prep books while studying for classes, finding connections with the material I'm learning. I was also planning on going through the Khan Academy videos over the course of the school year. Then I was planning on using a separate set of books + doing a prep course for the summer. How does this sound? 2. Re: the 1st question. I was thinking of going with Kaplan & EK but am willing to take other recommendations. I was planning on buying one set of this year's edition to use for the school year, and then buying the other company's new set for next summer. So either this year's Kaplan, next year's EK or vice-versa. Would you recommend one over the other? Thanks so much for your help!
  13. I'm planning on taking the MCAT this summer. In addition to a prep course I was planning on purchasing a set of Review/Prep books. From what I've gathered, the predominant MCAT prep book companies to have published their 2015 editions are as follows: The Princeton Review: Princeton Review MCAT Subject Review Complete Set: New for MCAT 2015 ($143.57) Kaplan: Kaplan MCAT Complete 7-Book Subject Review: Created for MCAT 2015 ($163.01) Examkrackers: Examkrackers Complete MCAT Study Package (9th Edition) ($274.94) The Berkeley Review hasn't released any 2015 material yet as far as I know. I've tried scouring the internet for evidence supporting one over the other. While TBR has a great following, I'm hesitant to purchase their current books as they don't pertain directly to the new material. However, EK has received lots of praise across the board (especially here) and TPR has is generally well-received. Kaplan has received positive feedback, but I have come across a couple of negative reviews as well. Overall, on the Amazon links posted above, they all seemed to have done the job for people at one point or another. I'm seriously deliberating purchasing the entire set of TPR and EK but that price tag looks like it's going to hurt (total = $418.51 before taxes, shipping etc.). I figure if it means I have a better shot at admission to med school (in addition to the potential resale value) it'll be worth it long-term. I know there is technically no "wrong" decision as all have their strengths and weaknesses, but does anyone have any particular insight/advice/knowledge/experience they could share that would help me out?
  14. Unopened, unused, brand new! $65 OBO. Please message if interested.
  15. Hey premeds, I've decided to take the test in the next spring so i'll be taking the new MCAT, call me stupid or ignorant, but I completly forgot about what books I would be using for the 2015 MCAT. Since there are not many reviews by the buyers of the Books available, I want to ask you guys your views. Since i'm a Princeton review fanguy(I used it for my SATs and I got a 2150 in just 3 months of preperation), i'd like to go with princeton review but i've heard there hasn't been much editing to the common syllabi of the old and new MCATs. Also i've heard that new kaplan has quite a few errors. Any help would be really appreciated fellows! Thanks.
