is anyone else scared to death about taking the mcat in august? i feel like all of this studying so far is getting me nowhere!!!! any advice?!?!!

also, any opinions on kaplan? i have the whole package, but i feel like there is more information than what is actually needed. would the examkrackers be a better investment? for all of those who have taken the mcat already, any advice would be appreciated!! thanks!

also make it your last time taking the mcat. I think too many ppl take the test thinking "well i can always take it again august/april"...

i took it this past april. i took the ek course. Definately invest in them, check them out at your local bookstore if they have it.
