    Hi all,
    I am new to the forum. For those who have taken the MCAT test, I was wondering if the AAMC 's outline for the test, which is posted on their site actually correspond to the actual test.

    I am using TPR material to study for the test and I noticed that the TPR covers topic such as cardiac output and Frank-Starling mechanism that is not discussed in the AMMC 's outline for biological science.

    I also noticed that the examkraker 's osmosis CDs do the same thing.

    I am short on time right (test on September 10) so I am prudent with what I study. I appreciate if you guys can give some suggestions for people who are short on time. I plan to to hit the old AAMCs(3-11) tests pretty soon even though I am not ready. Thanks

    Don't do the later AAMC's (8-11) till you're done with content review. Those are the closest to the real MCAT so attempting them without being fully prepared will dilute their usefulness.

    Also, it is best to know everything in the prep books like cardiac output. (I don't recall seeing the Frank thing on EK though)
