    I am preparing for the april mcat because i did not do to well on the august mcat. Currently i am studying with kaplan books, AO, and am planning to purchase NOVA'S The MCAT physics book. I was wondering if anybody would also recommend EK's 1001 questions book series. I really want to do well on these next mcat. ITS WAR! Thanks

    I used the 1001 books from EK. I found it somewhat lacking. It prepare me well for the discrete questions, but I didn't find it helping me at all on the passage based questions.

    It'll help understand the basic principles, but you'll need just as much passage based problems to prepare.

    btw : I prepared soley this summer off of the EK books for the August MCAT and Im retaking it this April. I think EK does a good job of simplifying some concepts, especially in organic chem and physics. But just wish the 1001 question books actually had a mix of passage based problems and discrete problems.
