    Hi guys. With a week and two days before the MCAT, I'm running out of practice material. I was just wondering if anyone has experience with Kaplan MCAT 45 or a comparable passage practice book and if so, if they'd recommend purchasing it for additional practice this late in the game.

    Thanks!

    i bought kaplan 45, not realizing that it's word for word exact passages from various Kaplan exams. for example, there about 4 passages taken directly from Kaplan exam #4. if u don't have access to kaplan explanations for exams or don't even have kaplan exams, then it is helpful. otherwise, i wouldn't bother..

    I used this book early in the summer and it demolished me. I think I was averaging 8's on the sections and I am now hitting 39's on full-lengths. It is not even close to reflective of actual MCAT questions. I would stay away from it, especially this late in the game.
