Ultimate CARS Strategy Course
Students who succeed on CARS have one essential skill that sets them apart: they are Good Readers. Having made this discovery, I carefully examined the research on the topic of becoming a Good Reader, and I was amazed at what I discovered. First of all, I learned that becoming a Good Reader is possible! And secondly, there is a research-based approach to helping any student become a Good Reader. Countless studies show this to be true, and this research forms the backbone of my Ultimate CARS Strategy Course.
Succeeding on CARS has nothing to do with:
Tenets of Rhetoric and Logic
Many CARS courses out there focus on teaching you deep principles of logical thinking as if that was going to magically improve your CARS score.
Answer Choice Pathologies
Yes, it is good to understand why an answer is wrong versus right, but for top CARS students, wrong answer choices are obvious based on a correct understanding of the passage.
Passage Outlining Techniques
People who sit down and score a 130+ CARS score on their very first attempt never learned some magical note-taking tactic.
Almost every CARS course/book out there focuses on question-based strategies. When you properly understand the passage, the questions are answered naturally.
Approaches for Different Question Types
You really don’t have time to analyze the question type and think of a step-by-step approach based on the type. It is best to keep things simple.
A Secret Methodology
In an effort to sell you on their $1,000+ course, some companies attempt to make you think that if you can just learn their “secret” approach, you can succeed on CARS no matter your reading level. Don’t fall for this.
The True Key to CARS Success
Ready for the secret formula? I’m going to give it away… For free…
Unlike the other sections of the MCAT, some students can sit down (without any prerequisite knowledge) and absolutely destroy it. I’m talking a 132 on their very first attempt. They never memorized the tenets of rhetoric, passage-outlining techniques, question-type approaches, the answer choice pathologies, or any kind of secret methodology. So why do they effortlessly succeed on CARS? Drum roll please… It is because they are Good Readers.
And Good Readers quickly understand what they read.
These are not cheap tricks.
Proven strategies that change your thinking.
A Research-based Approach
Everything I teach in this course is based on the most up-to-date research on how to become a Good Reader, which suggests that you can become a Good Reader through learning comprehension strategies. Research shows that the best way to learn these strategies is through the following:
Each of the 10 Strategy Modules in this course includes a typed explanation of the comprehension strategy, in which I teach you what the strategy is, why it is important, and when you should use it.
After the written description of the strategy, you will find a 30-60 minute video in which I apply the comprehension strategy to an actual CARS passage. You will see how I use it in the proper context, allowing you to truly gain an understanding for the what, how, when, and why of the strategy. You will see that specific reading comprehension strategies can make something that is very confusing become completely understandable. Due to my current demand for private tutoring, live sessions with me cost hundreds of dollars, but you can have access to ten of these Virtual Video Sessions for the price of one as part of this course.
Guided Practice and Application
As part of each Strategy Module, I will assign you homework that will help you apply the strategy until it becomes second-nature. While many students waste their precious CARS study time on poorly-written non-AAMC CARS questions, I’ll show you how to gain access to over 1,000 free CARS passages and center your studying around reading those. Doing these homework assignments will give you the opportunity to apply the comprehension strategies until they become second-nature, transforming you into a Good Reader. There are three types of homework assignments:
- Personal Practice
- Study Buddy Sessions
- Private Tutoring Sessions

Proven Strategies that Work!
“I had been working with MCAT Self Prep for a while before the CARS Mastery Course came out. I felt like I was implementing all of the rules and strategies to the best of my ability, but I was still unable to master the CARS section. Then after watching the first three videos from the new CARS course, my score jumped up 4 points (from the 35th to the 82nd percentile)!!! I couldn’t believe it! For me, the difference was being able to see Andrew practice what he preached. Watching how he approached CARS passages, learning what he did when he got stuck in a difficult passage, and visually seeing all of the highlighted “understandable” information each CARS passage offered helped me understand how to break down the confusing passages into something comprehensible!”
“Before using MCAT Self Prep, I was getting three or four questions wrong in each CARS passage that I read. After tutoring with Andrew, I have seen a tremendous increase in my CARS portion and am now only getting one question wrong in each CARS passage. He gave me helpful tips on how to approach the CARS passage which differ from other tips that I had researched from other companies. He took the time and taught me how to read and summarize each passage. I am happy that I decided to use MCAT Self Prep to prepare me for the MCAT. Andrew is an amazing tutor.”
“Since I’ve enrolled in the Ultimate CARS strategy course, I’ve had TREMENDOUS progress by only watching the first 6 videos and I can’t wait to finish the course. I am only getting one mistake per passage, and I am reading SO DIFFERENTLY! Every time I read I imagine Andrew saying what it is on his mind while reading the passage. I finally feel like CARS will not get in the way of me being a physician! If you’re having difficulties with CARS, this course is a MUST. You won’t regret it. You’ll see, after this course you’ll think: CARS is overrated!”
“As I began my studies for the MCAT I dreaded reading CARS passages, and my practice exams showed the correlation. I found the passages to be very confusing and noticed that the passage questions were designed in a way to critically analyze if the reader understood the passage adequately. Luckily, after completing each step of Andrew’s Ultimate CARS Strategy Course, I discovered how to analyze each and every aspect of the passage where I could then answer the questions accordingly. Through this course, I have learned how to think while reading CARS passages and how to differentiate between important and irrelevant information. By implementing the strategies outlined in Andrew’s CARS Strategy Course, I have started increasing my CARS score on practice exams, and I am looking forward to more positive results as I continue my pursuit for CARS success. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to increase their efficiency and scores while reading CARS passages. You will not regret it!”
“Andrew (and MCAT Self Prep in general) has helped me improve my score significantly! Before working with Andrew, I scored a 503 on an AAMC full-length exam. During my 3 sessions with Andrew, he gave honest feedback, tips, and strategies on how to improve my score. With his help and expertise, I was able to improve my score by 7 points in just a month up to a 510 on an AAMC full length. Also, his simple, yet effective tips for CARS improved my score from a 121 to a 125. He has been extremely flexible, easy to contact, prepared, and the most personable tutor I have ever had. I highly recommend Andrew and MCAT Self Prep, as his is method of tutoring is the BEST!”
“After spending 4K+ on a MCAT testing company on my first attempt, I retook the MCAT with Andrew. The website/system that Andrew offers is the utopia of MCAT preparation. Not only does it prepare you for the MCAT but also, changes your lifestyle and how one should properly approach the MCAT. During the diagnostics & taking FLs, my score changed from a 495 to a 510 and I witnessed a 7 point increase on the real deal. Also, English is my second language, so CARS was a bit challenging for me. On top of that, I lost 10 mins of time during the CARS section on the real thing (Yikes). However, thanks to the CARS strategy course, I was able to do just fine on the CARS section despite all the obstacles. With the deluxe pro plan & the great great great great FLASHCARDS that I was able to use anywhere, I got the MCAT score I wanted. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thank you Andrew for all your work.”
