1) Your individual scores and composite score: 14 PS, 13 VR, 13 BS, S WR. 40S. Smack dab in the middle of my most recent practice scores. Kaplan diagnostic was 27, I think. High 20's, anyway. 2) The study method used for each section: I went through all the Kaplan books very carefully and made sure I understood everything. I actually took the MCAT before I took physics class, so I focussed a lot on that. Then, just practice, especially for verbal. I found that often, I was answering verbal questions from memory instead of looking for clue words in the passage-don't make that mistake. I found that with practice tests, it's REALLY important to go right back over your practice and look at what you got wrong. If you got it wrong, why? Do you understand it? Also look at the questions you guessed on--sometimes you only got something right by chance, so you need to review that too! I found Kaplan very helpful, just because of the sheer amount of timed practice tests. My MCAT was very comparable to a Kaplan test (I.e. a fair bit harder than the AAMC CBTs) 3) What materials you used for each section(Kaplan, TPR, Examkrackers, AAMC, etc): I took the Kaplan online (I was working 60 hours a week and taking physics and bio at the time, so no classroom course for me) 4) Which practice tests did you use? AAMC and kaplan 5) What was your undergraduate major? cognitive science, and i have been a high school teacher for 2 years 6) Any other tips you may have for those of us who still have this test lurking over us? avoid SDN, it just makes things worse. I haven't been on too much since my MCAT. I came on the day after the test and it panicked me so much, i just decided to forget about it for a month. 7) How long did you study for the MCAT? Mar-Jun. I was supposed to take it in July but I moved it up to Jun when I was happy with 5 practice tests in a row. ALSO: nerves are such an issue. I came out of the test practically in tears, wanting to void. Do whatever you can to avoid this situation. Make sure you eat well the night before the test, talk to someone you like, hold a puppy.
