    hey guys, im a junior at UT austin majoring in biology. I am taking the Kaplan prep course for the April exam and also just bought the examkrackers 6th edition books. MY roommate is doing the princeton class, so between the 2 of us, we have a vast amount of material. I was just curious what else i should do? Next semester im only takin 12 hours and 2 of the classes are blowoff classes, so i have a lot of time to prepare for the mcat. I also purchased audio osmosis cuz i hear that helps too. Any advice on how to achieve score thats 30+, im not shooting for a 37 or anythin (although that would be cool) but a 32 would be a great number. Any advice would be appreciated. btw, i also have aamc 3-8...thanks, lookin forward to hearin your comments!

    You might want to get the EK home study schedule to have some structure or guide.

    my personal take on ur situation from studying this past summer: Use only Examcrackers for the VR section (trust me, Kaplan in my opinoin SUCKS in this section...I was getting 8-9's with their strategy, then bought EK in july for just verbal, and on the real deal I got a 12 on VR)

    For the sciences, I really like Kaplan's stuff, but I haven't even touched a TPR or EK sceince book.

    hey im at UT austin as well taking the kaplan course preparing us for the April MCAT. I think you have wayy too much material if you ask me, sounds like you have already spent 1800+ for kaplan course, audio osmosis, and examkrackers stuff. I think all you ahve to do is put in the time, and really take lower courseload classes since our classes really do take up a lot of time. Good luck

    The only problem with Audio Osmosis is that I think it's only really effective for people that either 1. Spend alot of time somewhere doing something were they can listen but not read (ie. a commute, some kind of menial office type job) or 2. Are a serious Auditory learner who just can't get the info any other way.
    I bought them because I have about 1 1/2 on the road each day - it's nice to feel like that time isn't wasted. But if you live on campus and don't have one of those jobs and aren't an auditory learner, I think you wasted your money.

    This is the only thing I would change if I were you. Maybe you could use punctuation and other sundry grammatical tools. I'm just teasing you, but seriously, shoot for that high score.
