    Hi everyone,
    I have two questions,
    First, how helpful is it to do mcat prep courses like kaplan? Are the courses just there to make sure you do your work or do they really give you an upper hand compared to people who just buy the prep book and study on their own?

    My second question is, if I try applying for the January 07 start date to Ross, Auc and SGU will they accept my application without the MCAT. Or should I wait to write the mcat first?

    okay apparently my second question is redundant and already posted so never mind that one :)

    I think this thread would be better off in the MCAT forum.

    I found only the books and practice tests helpful when I took the princeton review course. The teachers were old classmates of mine, and I just wasn't learning anything by going to class. They do give you a pace and schedule to work with, but I found it useless.
    Everybody does have their own ways of learning though. I had friends in the class who went to every session. I really found the books to be the best part. Get AAMC practice tests and do those with simulation.
