Do you guys buy the complete Examkrackers study guide, including all 5 sections, or do you just buy the "1001" questions books?

Do you buy the the other EK books, not labeled with "1001 questions", such as "ExamKrackers MCAT Biology" or "ExamKrackers MCAT Chemistry"?

I was just wondering because all I hear is buying the "1001 questions" books.

If you have any other recommendations, shoot em out...I just need to know what to and what not to buy.

When they talk about the complete package, they mean all of the books that don't have 1001 or 101 in the title. ex. Organic Chem, Chem, Physics, Biology, Verbal.

I have those books and I find them really helpful. I don't own any of the 1001 books but I heard they're great for the practice. I've also read that if you really need an indepth review, TPR is better. I personally really like Examkrackers though.

I really liked EK. I had all the books and all the 1000 Questions books. Personally, I'd recommend going through all the books and doing the questions at the end of each section. Then do the 1000 Question books.

Good luck!

I primarily used EK review books (NOT the 1001 series). I also bought the 101 verbal book, which I highly recommend.

I bought the Kaplan comprehensive review but that is just way too long and too boring.

I'm gonna get bashed for saying this but I personally preferred the Princeton review books over the EK. The princeton books are much more thorough and explains each topic in a much easier way. I took the test in Aug. 2005 and studied completely on my own. I would only buy the 101 verbal and 1001 bio and get a set of Princeton books from someone. Oh yea, I got a 33 and that's including 7 in verbal.
