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.

Highlights of this new edition include:
  • Critical strategies for timing, test taking, scientific problem solving, verbal reasoning, and the writing sample part of the test.
  • Expanded science review chapters that specifically cover the topics that AAMC has said can be on the test. The science review is written in clear and concise language and is aimed at understanding of concepts rather than memorization of fact. To this end, it uses frequent examples, practice problems, and diagrams to clarify concepts.
  • Practice MCAT tests that have been carefully designed to accurately represent the specific patterns of actual MCAT questions and passages.
  • A comprehensive, multi-month study plan.
The book also includes a CD-ROM that presents two additional practice MCATs in the computer-based format, thus closely imitating actual test-taking conditions, and offering the added convenience of automatic scoring. All the practice MCATs have been specially designed to capture the underlying patterns of the actual MCAT. Barron’s MCAT was reviewed by an advising team of current premed students from around the country.
