    Starting college this fall. What is the best study method of the MCAT for someone who's not good at taking standardized tests?

    I personally had a rough time with my ACT/SAT tests and was wondering how I can prepare for the MCAT. Some have said I should study long and hard two months before test day and others have said I should study all throughout college. Any ideas?
