    Is the Kaplan Physical Sciences book better for Chem or is ExamKrackers better for that? I am weak in Chem and need a thorough review.

    Thanks!

    I was not crazy about EK's Chemistry at all. I thought it was their weakest book of the group. I recommend you use Kaplan and then maybe EK as review. Be wary about what EK says regarding what is on and not on the MCAT. It has been wrong before.

    I'm not a big fan of EK books either. I thought their books were too skimpy and unconventional.

    However, there some other people who think their books are great. So I think it all depends on your learning style.

    Good luck

    yeah. i've heard many stories from my friends who have studied exclusively with EK and didn't pay much attention to the things that the side notes and whatever said not to and they ended up being tested on it.

    You should consider Berkeley Review. They're considered the best, by far, in gen chem.
