    I am using the Barron's PCAT study guide. I was wondering if anyone who used it found the math comparable to the actual PCAT?

    If it has a lot of calculus and statistics it does.

    Although Barron's is meager in the calculus department, it was enough for a good score.

    I'm more worried about the calculations required for chem than I am over the math section. :sleep:

    As always, they'll try to trip us up with functions and trig. As my physics teacher in high school said, "we gotta separate the wheat from the chaff." :hardy:
