    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 am doing kaplan pcat book as of right now. Any other books I should get OTHER than collins?
    I have heard that some people use MCAT books to prepare for PCAT. what books are good?

    Please reply..anything is appreciated..
    people who have already taken PCAT please share your experiences.

    Thanks in advance

    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.
