    Many of us had that EKG passage information of which can be found only and Physeo books. So I was thinking if you could make an advisory list of so called "hidden requirement" subjects that would help students to feel more confident on MCAT

    I will start it:

    1) Given:
    Intro Bio
    Gen Chem
    Physics
    Organic Chem

    2) Hidden
    #1 - Genetics (they are going to increase the # of questions on Genetics in 2003)
    #2 - Physeology
    #4 - Biochemistry
    #5 - Quantatative chem (places many things about chem on their places)
    #6 - Immunology - ?

    Any more ideas?

    Don't forget to read heavily or take courses on topics related to hummanities and liberal arts as the courses mentioned in this thread will do little good helping you master the verbal section, which, I've been told, is the best indicator of how you'll actually do in med school. Actually, I've only taken the four required pre-med courses and felt adequately prepared for both science sections. Biochem, prehaps would have provided additional help. The verbal section was the toughest, in my opinion.
