    Khan Academy for algebra prep

    I’m a couple of years removed from any sort of math courses. I’m also not very good at math. Would going through the Khan Academy Algebra 1 and 2 courses be enough to set me up for success for General Chem 1 and Physics 1? My chemistry background is limited and I have no experience with physics...

    How representative of MCAT material are the KA videos?

    I was working through the KA videos and I worked rather well with the videos. I've been mainly using Kaplan books for my studying/review and KA as a supplement but following this realization, I've been considering using KA as my main study source and Kaplan as a supplement but I'm rather...

    Does KA have answer explanations?

    Title essentially explains it. Started doing Khan Academy practice passages and, I might just be stupid, but I cannot find any explanations as to why a certain answer is correct and others are not. Are there just not any answer explanations?

    MCAT 2018

    I'm struggling to get through the readings in the review books (ExamKrackers) since it's boring. Also I find I do not learn as well from just reading and do better if it is taught outloud in a lecture. I know Khan Academy offers MCAT review videos and was wondering if just watching those and...

    Khan Academy videos over reading?

    QR Section

    So the new updated Ari's Study Schedule uses a compilation of Khan Academy's math videos. I've used Chad's before and still have his notes but my understanding of QR didn't really improve so I don't really want to purchase it again. What videos/other resources are you guys using for QR...

    Hi SDN, I unfortunately will not have a full summer available to prep for the MCAT, so I was wondering if you guys would have any advice for preparing over the course of a regular semester (I'm anticipating being able to spare about 5-8h/wk for prep) plus winter break (when I will be able to...

    More Practice Passages

    I have heard from many people that the best way to study for the MCAT is to do practice passages/ questions. So, I planned to do 2 a day along with the material review. However, I cannot find any passages. I had looked online and EK's 101 passages came up but I saw many negative reviews. Are...

    Hello SDN Members! This is my very first post (that I started not a reply, that was yesterday)! First of all, I wanted to thank everyone past and present who have posted on these forums.

    Bootcamp change to Khan for QR

    Does anyone know why Bootcamp switched from Chad's to Khan for the QR section? If Chad's was working for so many people, what would the reasoning behind the switch be?

    DAT QR section - I've never taken Statistics before...

    Hello! I'm taking my DAT on July 31, and I plan to study for 10-11 weeks. I am most worried about QR because 1) I haven't taken math since high school and I was never good at word problems, and 2) I've NEVER taken a probability/statistics course before, so I will have to learn that from...

    Use Chad's video or Khan Academy for math (quantitative reasoning)?

    Hey guys! Has anyone used Chad's videos for the quantitative reasoning portion of studying for the DAT? What are your thoughts? Is it enough? Is Khan Academy better?

    With my test date looming closer and closer , I think having a MCAT study buddy/ accountability partner would be advantageous . If anyone needs a serious study buddy, I am here for you! I'm open to studying in person- if you live close by, but I prefer online study sessions. We can hold weekly...

    "I have truly felt that the MCAT Self Prep eCourse has been more valuable than the MCAT prep courses I have paid for. It is really effective at keeping me organized and gives me a clear goal as to what I should accomplish before test day. I have already seen my score leap up 10 points in just 2...

    My common sense stress free MCAT 2017 Strategy!

    I am going to make this super short and sweet! I've spent more time than I'd love to admit 'researching' prep/review books and courses. At the end still coming to the basic fact that the MCAT tests three core concepts; which we all already know: 1. Foundation Concepts, 2. Content, and 3...

    MCAT Video Review/Recommendation/Thoughts Thread

    Hey SDN! I thought I would start a thread where people can discuss the different online video prep options, so we can find all the info on all the options in one spot. Feel free to put any thoughts you have on specific videos, what's good, what's lacking, or even just on using videos to help...
