I am registered for taking PCAT in September.

I want to know what books are good for studying/preparing. i know others have asked this question before and i saw alot of people mentioned Dr. Collins. But would it be worth it to buy it because i dont have alot of time..

I would wanna buy the REA flascard as well if i were you. It includes about 100 questions and lengthy explanations for verbal, chem, math and bio. I liked that book :)

When is your test date?

If your test date is September 28th, that's plenty of time to get the Dr Collins and start studying. Trust me, I used it and got a 98 composite. Almost everyone I've seen on here that got 90+ studied using Dr Collins.
