    Yeah It's ok for practice... don't take it too seriously though. There are tons of mistakes. I'd invest in a Kaplan review books too.

    I def. agree that there are TONS of mistakes that book that I have found myself. Everything from mistakes in content to spelling errors to mathematical errors. It is also not very comprehensive. But I must add that some concepts are explained VERY WELL in that book. It has helped me out a lot thus I would recommend you to buy it.
  7. I think you'd do better to see if you could a) either take the princeton review course or b) find somone who has already taken the course and buy their books.... the review books are better then the flowers and silver.. I have both.

    Once you enroll in the Kaplan course, between your Kaplan books and the library of material there for you to practice with, should be sufficient.

    I thought that Flowers and Silver was similar to the MCAT, but MUCH easier!
