Members don't see this ad.
If anyone is interested, I have a TON of Berkeley Review Materials (practice MCATS) that I would love to give away. I was saving them in case I had to retake in August. I just got my score, and I think it's pretty good and that Berkeley Review was pretty good.
PM me if you are interested. I would only ask that you pay me whatever it cost to send the stuff.

How did you study to get those excellent scores? How long before the test, did you take notes on material and then do practice problems and tests? What do you think helped the most? Was the score you recieved on the actual test similar to your AAMC practice tests?

If he had said he scored a 25M on the test, would you still want the materials this badly? hrmm...

Princeton cancels eBay auctions? Aww crap there goes my $$$. :(

Maybe if I set up a 3 day auction with a low buy-it-now price they'll miss it. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

First of all, this "he" is a "she" (to correct some of you).
Now I will reply in order. Also, Sinc eI receive a lot of PM requests, maybe I can photocopy the practice tests and AAMC test (3-6) and send them to people. The reason I am doing this is not just to get rid of the testing materials, but I have a strong belief that it is really unfair that some poeple can afford prep materials and even entire courses, while others cannot. The guy at Berk. Review said they dont' care if you give away their stuff to your "friends that can't afford it" so that's what I'm doing. And by the way, if I had gotten a 24M or whatever that person said, I wouldn't be getting rid of them just yet. :) OK, to answer a few things.

sng33: I studied A LOT. Starting in January all the way through april. I probably spent AT LEAST 4 hours a day, probably more. Mostly I would do practice passages and problems, not much reading. The reading that I did do was all from test prep material, not from any books (unless I had a more detailed question, which I usually didn't). I ALWAYS went over ALL of my answers to everything even if I got it correct, just to double check. Also, I did all of the AAMC practice tests (incidentally, my scores were comparable to what I received on AAMC, though they just leave it as &gt;= 12, so they don't differentiate. My verbal, 11, was on the high end of how my practice tests were, but they varied wildly, so I was very relieved)

Chemistry Boy: see above. BR DID tell me to spread the wealth, so I am. I was crossing my fingers that I didn't "mis bubble". those damn bubbles are so small!!! also, after a week later realizing an o-chem EASY question that I missed I started to wonder about everything. I always think tests are challenging and always remember the "hard" questions.

I'm teaching Princeton Review now and I think they are VERY strict about copying their materials. That's why I didn't publicize that I have them on this site.

I also have AAMC tests, but I'd have to say I'm leeting you "borrow" them, not photocopy them.

It just makes me SO MAD that applying to med school is SO EXPENSIVE.

In summary (hee hee, this is really long), I would love to give the stuff to everyone, so I will attempt to photocopy materials and send them off. If you just want the tests, let me know.

Please do it via email since SDN is down a lot lately.

My email is [email protected]

I've completely nixed the idea of photocopying. I suppose I had a temporary brain lapse because I felt bad since so many people said they wanted the books and tests. I didn't want to "choose" Oh well.

I think when BR told me to share, they didn't mean to photocopy and I totally agree that it's immoral. Sorry to anyone that I mentioned I would send them photocopies. :(

Anyway, if the tests really are only $20 each, then I would invest in few of the best ones. As for the books, they are pretty good, but filled with erros (some of the tests are, too), but they are very comprehensive.

Good Luck!

Hey I have a quick question,

Which of the 8 BR tests would you consider to be the best? Also, which of the 4 science reviews is most useful? I heard some are excellent, while others contain way too much extraneous information.
