Not only that but master all the material in your pre reqs. Understand rather then memorize. Look for overlapping concepts between your pre req classes. Do all of this and mcat studying won't be too bad.
I agree and disagree. I think you absolutely need physics 2. My mcat was prob more physics then gen chem, and literally all the physics was physics 2 stuff. There was almost no ochem on my test, only around five questions that were really basic and easy. And I agree about anatomy, I doubt it will help you at all. It did help on ONE question though, lol. There was a discrete question that was from anatomy but it was really easy and it's taught in any basic biology book.
Think about it. If you did the pre-reqs first, you'd understand/already know most of the MCAT content. Thus your studying would be easier.
If you don't do your pre-reqs first, you'll be teaching yourself the material as you study for the MCAT. Studying would be harder because you also have to teach yourself the material first. An extra step that may hinder your score.
No mcat prep book can fully prepare you for all of the information needed to do well on the mcat. It would be a waste of money to take the test when you are not prepared. You should take the test once and no more if possible!
