I know this has been posted a million times in different scenarios so here goes a million and one. I took the MCAT Aug 2006. I think I received the lowest score on the planet. YES, THAT BAD!! I definately ran out of time studying. Even though I knew I did horrible, I didnt void the MCAT score because my apps were already out. One of the many problems I had last time I was preparing was trying to pick books. I was going back and forth from every single book imaginable. I was taking a TPR class... But, I soon gave up on TPR books because I found them to be a bit unstructured and TMI for BIO for my lack of time. I bought EK books hoping I could pull off all the material on time, but, soon discovered that I was having difficulty following since its been several years since my pmeds. I had kaplan books my friend handed down to me. At the end, I really didnt feel comfortable knowing I was going into the test blind so I went back to TPR books. I ended up doing Kaplan Bio and Gchem+Phys w TPR. Orgo I did EK since I was taking orgo at the time. Mind you, I crammed PHYs in a weekend. BIG NO!! Fried my brain...it shows in my score (which is too embarrassing to post) Here I am picking my books once again. BTW, I have AO too and I have access to Nova Physics if need be. I just really need help in choosing already. So with my stats considering the following: pre-meds years ago, studying habits=outline based...What would you recommend? I really want to stick to one set of review books.. In my journey I have found that: IMO Kaplans material is outlined and structured...which I liked because it correlated with my studying habits as I do take notes and focus on my memory of outlines and notes. But, the material for the phys I wasn't too fond of... TPR had more 411, especially for genetics, which my exam had a lot of. Actually, I think my whole BIO section was almost exclusively genetics!! Also, since I have the syllabus, I know if I sit down with TPR I have that to fall back on. EK I keep reading how great it is, and I will def use for verbal. However, I am unsure if I should use this exclusively, even though I have reviewed material once for the first MCAT, I am quick to forget. So I am considering myself as starting from scratch again (yet having some really good review notes I never ended up getting to look over). I think in essence, content wise I liked TPR but structure I like Kaplan. Which is more important? I would assume content, but, structure IMO facilitates with memory. I know it all comes down to practice, but, I can't start AAMCs until I know the material well enough to understand what I did wrong. Should I do the same as I did before Kaplan bio and rest TPR and just use the old reviews. OR should I start all fresh with one review as if the first MCAT never happened? Sorry for the rambling. This indecisiveness even goes beyond what I am making for dinner tonight. Please help! Thanks in advance!!
