    I am contemplating using the "Kaplan Premier" book that contains all MCAT categories in one single book, verse Kaplan's "5 book subject review."

    I like the idea of being able to reference back to a single book as I work through as many practice tests and problems as possible.

    Any personal insight/ experience with either option would help me greatly


    Thank you

    Also, any thoughts on Exam Krackers would be very helpful.


    Thanks!

    Hi jdbarr7,

    This is the USMLE forum, so you may also want to post these questions on the MCAT forum. While we wait for students to share:

    It depends what is your specific situation. Some students need a more comprehensive review, so the 5-book subject kit is ideal. For others, the simple high-yield book will suffice. They both include online resources, quizzes, study sheets and more.
