I am starting to prepare for the MCAT. I still have probably a year or more to go, but my bio, chem, ochem courses are old. I took gen bio like five years ago. I also haven't taken biochem, physiology, and genetics yet (will soon). My question is this: if I study from MCAT books alone, would it be sufficient to know everything on the MCAT? Or should I just go back and review all my textbooks? Obviously, I will cross-reference the school textbooks if I don't understand something in the MCAT prep, but do they cover all the topics on MCAT? My GPA is low, so I am shooting for close to a perfect score. After some searching, it seems that these are the most comprehensive books for MCAT prep: EK 101 Biology review EK101 Bio passages (EK bio is the best – learn best from passages. Stripped down of basics) EK 101 Verbal BR Gen Chem and OChem is by far the best BR or Nova for physics Do you guys mostly agree with this list? I looked on amazon, but couldn't find some of the examkrackers versions. Could you tell me the full names of the EK books listed above? What is the consensus on BR vs Nova for physics? I don't have a problem with physics and would prefer the harder/more in-depth one. Some of you mentioned that Kaplan is too detailed and difficult. Maybe those topics are the deciding factors whether you break 40? Many such people on SDN seem to have used several books for each section, meaning that probably no single MCAT book covers all the topics. I don't know if that's the case.
