Hi,

I'm an Arts student planning on taking the MCAT this August (probably Aug 19th). The only prerequisites I've taken so far are Gen Chem (full year) and Biology (full year). I will be taking a summer course in May and most of June in Organic Chemistry 1 as well.

 

For someone who has a very limited background in Science, but also has the entire summer (May-Aug 19th) besides one summer course, to study for the MCAT, would a course be worthwhile? 
 

If so which one do you guys recommend?

Whether a course would be worthwhile has more to do with if you are the type of person who is organized and able to plan and stick to a schedule. From my experience, everything said in class is simply written and explained in the textbooks. If you are able to stay organized then I would simply suggest buying the books. I understand that you may be worried about the material since you don't have much background, however, there are a few resources which can help you with this. Khan Academy is a huge one. They have videos on almost everything and they really cater to individuals with no background. I personally had little background in psych and absolutely no background in sociology and was able to get a 130 in that section. Good luck with your MCAT.
