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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Question-based Strategies

    Almost every CARS course/book out there focuses on question-based strategies. When you properly understand the passage, the questions are answered naturally.

  • 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.

Welcome to my Ultimate CARS Strategy Course

  • Andrew has worked one-on-one with hundreds of pre-med students, helping several of them achieve 100th percentile MCAT scores. He leads the MCAT Self Prep Tutoring Team, and his CARS strategies have led many of his students to improve their CARS score by 40+ percentile points.

Through my experiences tutoring hundreds of students, I've come to discover why some students score a 130+ CARS score from day 1, while other students continually struggle to score above a 125. I've realized that 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 literature on this 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, I learned that 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.

Proven CARS Strategies that Work!

  • 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!

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:

  • Direct Explanation

    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.

  • Teacher Modeling

    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:

    1. Personal Practice
    2. Study Buddy Sessions
    3. Private Tutoring Sessions
  • Personal Practice

    At the end of each lesson, you will be provided with a variety of homework assignments to complete on your own. Instead of just telling you to "read for X amount of time," you will be provided with detailed instructions for what to do as you read actual CARS passages. These assignments will push you to apply the strategies you are learning until they become second-nature.
  • Study Buddy Sessions

    Research shows that reading with someone else greatly enhances your ability to learn comprehension strategies. When you can see someone else applying the strategy that you are learning, you begin to see how you should be implementing that strategy. Because there is so much that you can learn from reading with other students, you will be assigned specific homework to complete with a study buddy. And members of the Ultimate CARS Strategy Course are able to work with other students who are also using this course through our CARS-exclusive Facebook Study Group.
  • Private Tutoring Sessions

    Countless studies make it clear that 1:1 tutoring is the very best way to become a better reader. CARS books think that you can simply read about a strategy to learn it. Other CARS courses think you can learn about strategies in a large-group setting. Current research shows that this is not effective. To truly become a better reader, the strategy should be learned in a one-on-one environment. Our Elite Tutors scored in the 97th percentile or higher on the MCAT, and they can show you how to apply the strategies in your unique situation.
