I hope you can all be straightforward. So here goes nothing, I have taken the MCAT once and got 8P, 10V, 10B. I got these scores on the August 2003 MCAT while working full time and studying various material at night. Alas, the material I studied was no where as hard as the MCAT material (hence the 8 in P) and I never really took practice tests under timed conditions so I missed many questions during the test. I will take the MCAT again this Aug '04, but I have no idea how I should study. I don't think I need to take a prep course, but how should I improve my grades? What materials are good to study with? Also roughly, between a 10 and a 15 in each section, how many more questions right does that translate into? Thank you for your help!
