    Hi guys,


    I was hoping to start my studying by going through a 2001 REA complete MCAT book to get familiar with the content. This book, however, is almost 6 years old.

    I was then hoping to do some closer reading with the 6th edition EK books supplemented with some 2004 kaplan course books.


    So basically, i'll be studying books that are all pre-CBT.


    Could someone tell me the major changes that happened to the MCAT exam during the past few years?



    I remember someone saying that they took out organic chemistry from the test? Or give less questions? (something that is covered heavily in the 2001book).

    Any other major things i should ignore while going through the older books?


    Cheers!

    They didn't take out organic chemistry, but they took out a few topics in 2003 - aromatic compounds and alkenes/alkynes.

    I don't think there were any other changes, though I'm not 100% sure.

    Hmmm, ok. So when books come out with new editions, it is merely to fix errors? Not to account for a change in content?
