    get the AAMC practice items that are availabe throught their website (~$100), do all of those passages, problems, and tests. If you take a review course from kaplan or princeton then they will provide access to those practice items. best of luck

    I second that you should get the Princeton Review mcat prep books. The Gen Chem/PHY book was amazing and I did very well in the Physics section even after having a tough time with that class in college. I also got ahold of the Kaplan Bio book which I thought was great. Take notes on the key points of what you read and then review them...you can't go wrong if you bring this info to the test. Also do tons of practice questions, nothing will be straightforward except the few disreet questions. The Princeton Practice Workbook has many practice passages and helped me a lot. Good luck!
