The AAMC published this paper in 2009. It's includes all the subtopics of each topic on the MCAT. It shows EVERY single subtopic/concept that the MCAT tests. What do you guys think of starting a "master" thread where each person can contribute to this concise study guide?

It's too much for any one person to tackle, but together we could actually develop a concise list on this. It's already been EXTREMELY useful since finding it yesterday, b/c there are some subtopics I've missed.

Warning: it's a pdf

Isn't this basically what their study outline is but they used more generalized topics instead of specifically indicating each thing under the general topic? For instance, they list skeletal system on the outline. I figured they wanted us to be aware of all the little details dealing with the skeletal system (i.e. cartilage and bone function and structural make-up). I think they make it less overwhelming by generalizing the outline because looking over this pdf makes it seem like it is a beast. I appreciate you posting it because we can look and see if we really were convering the nuances that the generalized outline assumed us to study and know.

PS: It also seems like some of the topics go far beyond freshman courses.

definitely. There is no way in hell that I would get half of these bio questions right if I hadn't taken all my upper level bio electives.
