Create-your-own Study Plan Course
Creating a Successful Study Plan using a Proven Step-by-step Process
Step 1: Diagnostic Exam
The course starts by having you take a diagnostic exam composed of practice questions from the AAMC, the writers of the actual MCAT.
Step 2: Goal Setting
Based on the score you get on the diagnostic exam and the level of medical schools you are aiming for, we'll help you set an ambitious yet completely realistic goal score.
Step 3: Action Items
Using both your diagnostic score and your goal score, we will help you determine what to study in order to make the needed improvements.
Step 4: Timeline Generation
With the action items in mind, we will help you plan this into a schedule that is both structured yet customizable and adjustable over time.
Step 5: Progress Tracking
Not only do our study tools allow you to track your progress, but they will also help you decide how to adjust your studying based on the improvements you are making.
Step 6: Goal Achievement
Because the study plan you create is based on principles that lead to MCAT success, following it with diligence will result in achieving your goal.
Advanced Study Tools
The Create-your-own Study Plan Course comes with premium study tools such as our Create-your-own Study Plan Spreadsheet, which will keep you organized and on track towards reaching your goal.

"I would highly recommend Andrew over ANY prep course – you will get personalized assistance and someone that really wants to see you do your best!"
"If anyone is planning on taking the MCAT, I recommend using MCAT Self Prep; it has awesome resources and tutors who go above and beyond for you."
MCAT Self Prep not only helps you set high goals but also paves the way to reach them. The Create-your-own Study Plan Course taught me the importance of striving for a high score, how to achieve my goal, how to take effective notes and make note cards, and how to go over my practice exams. Honestly, I would highly recommend students to make a schedule with MCAT Self Prep to have both an organized study plan and an accountability system. With the Score Tracker, I was able to convert my AAMC practice problems into a scaled MCAT score, which is pretty much one the most useful tools since the percent of answers that I got correct on the practice problems were not at all correlated with the MCAT scale. This helped me see how exactly I was doing, whether I was improving, being at the same level, or getting worse. The graphs that displayed my progress also helped me see if I was headed in the right direction and helped me adjust my study plan accordingly. The Score Tracker is a MUST!
Incredibly affordable alternative to the MCAT materials you generally see. I absolutely credit these resources as a major contributor to my score (which I am incredibly happy with). Just the support for study scheduling alone was amazing and the amalgamation of a variety of resources into a cohesive study plan was excellent; I cannot recommend this site enough as the first-stop in any MCAT-takers journey, especially if you can't shell out the kind of money other prep companies charge.
Andrew helped me set up a basic study plan, and I stuck to it in the following months. It took discipline, but when I finally got my scores back I was excited to see I had scored in the 100th percentile. So, I can now say with confidence that preparing on your own for the MCAT is not only possible, but preferable to spending so much money on other test prep companies. I can also say that I know Andrew’s desire to help is genuine. I could tell he wanted me to succeed and he cared about me as a person, not just a customer. In short, I’m a big supporter of MCAT Self Prep!
The Create Your Own Study Plan Course was extremely helpful to me at the beginning of my studying process. I was unsure of how much material I needed to cover, how much time I really had, and how quickly I needed to do all of it. This course is simple, but its benefit is huge! Definitely recommend going through this course to get a better understanding of how to tackle everything you'll need to cover before test day!
This is such an amazing course and I am so grateful I bought the package! I had previously created a basic schedule about 2 weeks ago, but this has helped so much more and I feel a lot more prepared to study and stick to my hourly goals in each of the phases I have created! Also, creating phases was super helpful for me because I am currently pregnant and attending school this upcoming fall to finish undergrad so there are times where I can study more and other times where I cannot as much.
I have just gotten started with the Deluxe Pro PLUS Plan, and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised. I had already scheduled with Andrew for help with a custom study schedule because I was so not confident about doing it myself. However, I found navigating through the launchpad and the create-your-own-study plan beyond helpful. Rarely do instructions go into this much detail and are actually spot on. There are videos and detailed descriptions, and whenever I thought I needed to calculate something on my own (ex: how many hours per day for how many days), the next step was a solution for exactly that. Now, I’m all set and confident, and I did it solely by following this easy-to-follow course.
The Create-your-own Study Plan Course was an eye-opener and has helped me set realistic goals for my MCAT studying. This course walks you through every single step -- from taking a diagnostic exam to setting up your study schedule. I feel much better now knowing that I have a solid plan and am excited to see my progress as I continue with the MCAT Self Prep study modules.
Andrew is great. He gave me a study plan specific to me, that I really feel will get me the score I need. He is very easily accessible and does everything in his power to make sure the student is comfortable and confident. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a structured plan they can follow on their own.
Hi, I just wanted to say I hit my goal score, in spite of working full-time, having my original test cancelled due to COVID-19, and so many other crazy obstacles this year. I wanted to shout out that this course offers great flexibility without trying to take you for every dollar you have. I spent $9.99 for the basic extra materials and I super appreciate the guidance this gave me! Good luck everyone, you can do this!!!!
