    Hi guys!
    sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm new here.

    I was wondering if it will still be ok for me to take the MCAT this summer, considering how I haven't taken mammalian physiology or biochem yet. I have just finished ochem, physics, and the core bio classes at my university, so with those fresh in my head, I was just going to buy a review book and intensely read/study the physiology sections like the endocrine/nervous system etc etc. Some people told me I should wait until I complete mamm phys and biochem because the knowledge from those courses will help me think faster during the exam. I know it would probably help me, but do you guys think it's do-able? Has anyone taken the MCAT without taking these courses first?
    thanks for any advice =)

    Hey, I think you'll be fine as long as you invest a good amount of time into these subjects during your own studying. I had biochem but no physio and thought I was fine.
