So I have been seeing around how well this works, but could I get a few feedbacks from people who have actually had a good increase in their PCAT score by using this. I really really REALLY need help with my score and I am planning to take it in October again by using this material. Any other advice would be helpful, in terms of what PCAT material to use. Thank you!

I have the same questions as well. Could someone also reflect on the hours and frequently of their studying. How long did it take you to go through all of Dr. Collin's material? How did you study it? How did your score change?

I know my score still sucks, but I took the Jan 09 PCAT with no kind of preparation and got an 18 and after taking Collins, I got a 49. SO the improvement was significant, but I will be taking the test again in October to improve my score obviously.

gosh! thanks for being honest moni, now I know I'm not the only one! So Dr. Collins really did help you? I'm purchasing my packet from someone and I hope it comes to good use! I'm also taking my test in October to improve!

I actually paid for the Kaplan course, and I think the Kaplan tests are just a lot harder as far as the chemistry section goes. I think it is much more involved than the actual PCAT. I took the Kaplan final and made a 69 in chemistry. On the June PCAT I made a 95 in Chemistry.
