I am having trouble finding the EK complete set. I can find it on the EK page, but they really gouge you on the price (about twice as much as amazon.) Everyone else seems to be sold out and say things like, will ship in one month. One month is fine, but it has been saying that for a long time now. Should I just pay the extra to EK?

Thus far the only place to get version 6 now is from EK themselves.

Amazon has been known to drag out 4-6 weeks to 8-10 weeks.

If you want the stuff for April, pay the extra IMO for the sure thing.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this is version 5.
All I know is what the Amazon.com page tells me, and it does say "MCAT Complete Study Package, Sixth Edition (Exam Krackers) (Exam Krackers)". The product page says: "Publisher: Osote Publishing; 6th Pkg edition (October 31, 2005)"
So, yes, I am correcting you because you're wrong. And you're welcome, ya ingrate. :laugh:

thats right, if you check the amazon availability it says "Usually ships within 4 to 6 weeks."

I got EK 6th ed from overstock.com about a month ago or so. I sold my old 5th ed (unused) on ebay for a small profit.

Oddly enough I had bought the 5th ed from overstock as well earlier this year. Additionally, they were having a 10% discount sale around haloween so I did save a little bit of money when I bought EK 6th ed (paid $101 or so including shipping). They shipped it to me in about a week.

I don't see what the big deal with the 6th ed. is. It doesn't look terribly different than the old 5th ed. Though I haven't combed it for a word by word comparision - I just like having the latest and greatest.
