Anyone else who has used them for the last MCAT want to comment?
I agree with the above posts that you can't use AO as a substitute for the books. I read the EK section first (they correspond to AO), and then listened to AO while going through the section of the EK book again. I felt it really helped to solidify my knowledge of the subjects.
I just got Audio Osmosis and have been listening to it. Is anyone else using this and what do you think about it? So far, it's a little cheesy but at the same time, it's great to have a different way to think about the material. Any thoughts?
I agree that it is in no way a substitute for reading the material. However, it's a great supplement as far as I can see. Anyone else who has used them for the last MCAT want to comment?
I'm planning on using them at a desk with pencil and paper.
As they discuss the material, I write it out. So far it seems like the way to get
the most out of it, it's comprehensive but it'd take a special kind of mind to tackle it all on the go.
This sounds like a good idea and will reinforce the concepts. Although it is a more time-dependent method. I am in the Kaplan class but I downloaded AO and use it as a supplement. I loaded it into my iPod and listen to it in my downtime, long car trips, etc. where normally I would just be burning time.
I study before going to bed and put on the relevent lectures while going to sleep. It's an awesome consolidation of material.
Also while I'm imaging, slicing brains in lab, or doing another mindless task - listening to AO a) keeps me from getting bored and b) is great review
I didn't like Audio Osmosis ... learning is an active process and you cannot do it by listening - at least not me. It may to some extent help in Bio .. like listening while working out but meh ... I would rather listen to Miley Cyrus Try it:
