Jay Cutts, M.A., et al - All books by this author
The new Barron's MCAT is completely revised and expanded to provide in-depth, easy to use science review and often-neglected, but critical, strategies for time management, test taking, reading comprehension, essay writing, and scientific problem solving. These strategies have been clearly outlined by a team of authors with years of hands-on MCAT training experience. The book opens with a detailed overview of this exclusively computer-based test, and follows with a comprehensive set of strategies for apportioning and focusing study time and managing stress. A special section teaches the advanced timing and testing strategies that help students maximize their score on the actual MCAT. All parts of the 4-hour, 20-minute test are explained and analyzed in detail with sample questions. A diagnostic test is provided to help students determine where they most need to focus their study efforts. Six review chapters cover the test's four sections: Physical Sciences (General Chemistry and Physics); Verbal Reasoning; the two MCAT Essays; and Biological Sciences (Biology and Organic Chemistry). Each chapter ends with a chapter test in the MCAT format, along with explanations of answers. The chapters are followed by two additional full-length model MCATs with answer keys and explanations of answers.
