    I was just wondering if anyone has used the book called "Gold standard Mcat by Fredinand". My friend recommended it to me last summer, but i'm not sure if i should use it or not, cause don't wnat to waste time.

    Second question was if i should get Kaplan Comprehensive review book if i don't use Gold standard. I have EK package, 1001 series and also minitests etc

    Thank you for the help in advance :idea:

    Does your friend hate you or something? Gold Standard is the worst MCAT book I've ever seen in my life. Stick with the conventionals. I have mini-mcats and apparently they're really hard... didn't use them, no time.

    I did the full lengths from the Gold Standard and they were very good but the review of the materials leave a lot to be desired,

    You can get the Kaplan exams in PDF format on Ebay from $10-$15 and it's a good investment. The verbal section tests were very helpful and although the topicals for physics will have you poking your eye with a sharp object, understading the solutions will help you out.
