    Has anybody tried this? I've already gotten Kaplan, Barron's, some text books. I want some more stuff to help me engrain all these info in my head. Do you guys think that this is worth it or works? Their website kinda looks like a joke to me. Input please? :)

    One of my friends has them. They arent as bad as you would think, but no where near as helpful as kaplan. Kaplan is the best that i've seen so far, and I've bought a ton of pcat prep crap.

    Thanks for your input. I was comtemplating on getting it but after I got four other books and sample tests, I've decided to stop because my wallet is now empty. At this point, I'll even be lucky as to be able to go through all my prep stuff in time for the exam.

    I don't think that the quantitative ability review section totally prepares you for that section. I feel like the math section on the actual PCAT is harder than the section in the review book. But if you are reviewing with the kaplan book and you are owning the math review section, then I wouldnt worry all that much.

    I think the general chemistry review is pretty good. There was a ton of organic on the October 22 test. Like you've probably read before, the organic review is not sufficient. I think it would be very difficult to score well in the chemistry section if you don't know much organic. But since you'll probably be in organic or done with organic when you take the PCAT that shouldn't be a worry.
    The biology section in Kaplan is definately a good review.
