thanks. that's definitely good to hear.I was the same way except I haven't taken any sociology. I was nervous before I began studying, but it turns out my bio/biochem and psy/soc are my two highest sections for my practice FLs. The material is, IMO, surprisingly easier than you may think.
You're not crazy, but you have a lot of work to do. Psychology section is probably the most memory dependent of all sections (That's not to say other sections don't require memorization). Are you just starting to study the psychology material? If that's the case, then I don't know how you can remember everything and practice in 2-3 weeks period.
See if you finish all the material needed before the test. If you're not able to, then you should postpone it.
Plenty of people have crushed the MCAT w/o a formal psych class. Most of my students who tested in 2015 did so. 2-3 weeks is a bit of a tall order though. Be sure to limit your Psych/Soc content review to only what is mentioned in the AAMC outline. Also integrate MCAT style Qs into your Psych review from the get go. Psych is very recall heavy and active learning will help the info stick better.I'm starting to get cold feet about my sept test date due to the fact that I have never taken psych.
Am I crazy to even think that I could teach myself psychology in 2-3 weeks?
The only psychology class that I ever took was an AP Psych class my junior year of high school (and I am currently a year out of undergrad). The only thing that I used to study the psychology was the AAMC study guide for psychology and the Khan Academy videos. The guide from AAMC tells you what percent of each topic will be on the MCAT, so I would definitely use it. Here is the link and for psychology, scroll down to page 67 until page 100: https://www.aamc.org/students/download/377882/data/mcat2015-content.pdfAnyone know of a topic list for psych/soc that includes the terms that are left out in the prep books?
