How did you guys study for the MCATS? Ive been out of school for about 6years and forgot almost everything. I took

2 sem. of general chem,
2 sem. of bio,
1 sem. of O-chem
1 sem. of pyhsics.

I got like a 3.0 gps in those classes. Im applying to med school in the carribean and im aiming for a 24 in the MCATs.

Should i retake everything or just finish the pre-req.? how hard is the MCATS.

Actually, it is just MCAT. No "s". Have you peeked into the MCAT forum? There's a ton of advice to be found there. Many people buy special MCAT study materials and/or take private MCAT preparation courses.

Heh, that annoys me too. ;)

OP, along with the general MCAT forum, you might want to visit the MCAT Study Questions subforum and read through the explanations threads there. Start with the General thread. Lots of good advice for you. :)

I don't think you need the MCAT to go to certain carribean schools. Verify what the entrance requirements are. 24 shouldn't be that hard. I had a 25 and hadn't had physics in 20 years, was working nights at Wal Mart while studying and hadn't had my second year of biology. If you have to have the MCAT, take a Kaplan course and you'll do ok.
