Hi everyone, I am beginning my MCAT studying to take a test in the spring/summer (I'm pretty flexible). I graduated from undergrad in Apr 2008 with a BS and major in Philosophy. However, most of my science pre-reqs were taken during sophomore and junior year and as a result I'm pretty rusty. I've been looking through my study book (Barron's 2009) and a lot of the material is stuff I never even learned before. I excelled at organic chem in undergrad, but I've forgotten almost everything... I'm hoping doing chem again will be like riding a bike. I recently took a physics class so I'm not as worried about that, but I get very nervous thinking about the biological sciences part. I know that these books are intended to be a "review", but will they be adequate for someone who essentially a first-time learner? How much time do I need to prepare? I'm not doing much else right now so I can devote several hours a day to studying if need be. What methods would you recommend? Right now I'm basically going through and putting everything onto flash cards, but I don't know if that's going to help me in the long run. I can't take a classroom course (there aren't any in my area) but I wouldn't be opposed to an online course. Are they useful? I am just worried that I won't be prepared in time with my current pace. Study planning has never been one of my strong points Thanks everyone!
