    so, I read a lot of negative reviews about this book. I bought it because I wanted something so I can start preparing for the august PCAT (and may retake in October depending on the result). I thought the biology section was ridiculously difficult and remembered very little of that from my biology classes (it's been about 7 or 8 years since I've taken any). I took the PCAT 7 years ago (read my other posts for more info), and did fairly well but don't really remember much about it. From people who have recently taken the test - is the bio section really like that? :confused:

    Took the PCAT once about three years ago. I agree, the bio sections can be pretty nasty when you first start off, so prepare accordingly. Use the study guides avaiable to you and work the difficult areas thoroughly.

    Also know what areas in biology tested if you have been out of school for awhile, it may help.
