What are the best MCAT prep materials? One of the most difficult aspects of making an MCAT study plan, is knowing which materials are the best ones to use. Because there are so many content review books, practice problems and guides out there it can be hard to know which ones to spend your time on. After analyzing the experiences of over 50 students that scored between the 95th and 100th percentiles, we came to a single conclusion: The students that score high on the MCAT use a wide variety of high-yield, low-cost resources.
What MCAT materials are the most high yield? Our analysis revealed that there wasn’t a single content review book that sufficiently covers all the MCAT content. For this reason, you should use a variety of low-cost content review books. When it comes to practice problems, however, you should be sure to center your practice around the official practice problems produced by the AAMC. Practice problems produced by prep companies are typically sub par and full of typos. Why practice on anything but the real deal? Afterall, our Free eCourse has a built-in score converter, allowing you to convert the percent correct you score on AAMC practice problems into an estimated scaled MCAT score.
