    I stumbled upon this by accident. Click the link below, then click on the image to get a preview of the book. At the left, you'll see a link to "buy" a Kindle version for $0.00. If you don't have a Kindle, (which I don't), it saves to the Kindle Cloud, and you can access that online pretty much anywhere (though it doesn't work with "private browsing mode").

    Yes, they appear to be. They contain the sections about "psychology" and stuff that will be added in 2015.

    Idk if it was a mistake or not, but either way, I'd take advantage of it now before they end it.

    You deserve some kind of a medal. And I think you made the transition to 2015 that much easier for so many people.

    Thanks a ton.

    I use Linux, so afaik there's no Kindle App for us besides the online reader, which is fine. And I'm too poor for those other devices, but thanks for posting, I'm sure it helps others.

    I honestly don't know. Presumably they have the technical capability to do so, but I believe they have a policy against it now. There was a similar situation a few years ago regarding the book 1984.

    I just looked and I can't either. I can't access my Kindle Cloud Reader from home for reasons unknown (probably something to do with using Linux), so Idk if amazon took it back. Next time I'm on campus, I'll check.

    Afraid of it disappearing? Low chance it'll happen, but if you're really worried, download calibre and back your Kindle **** up. De-DRMs automatically once added to library and downloads an additional, non-Amazon controlled copy on your computer.

    I am afraid of that b/c of the incident with 1984 a few years back. That's a good idea! I use Calibri, but didn't know it supports the Kindle format.

    Those of you who still have it, can you open it? I get an error message saying it can't be opened and to try again later. Also, how do I download it to Calibre, moop?

    Yes I can still open it. You have to find where your Kindle content is stored; search for a folder called "My Kindle Content." I don't know how you have calibre set up, but it should be able to get into the folder. Find the book (sort by "Date Added" b/c the default book names are like EBOK_AEIK73DKD, which don't tell you sh*t about what it is) and add it in. Google this stuff; very well documented.

    Okay. Must just be a problem with my computer then. I use Calibre in German, so I'll have to figure this out.

    It must have been a glitch because it's not free anymore. I wanted to save it in case I have to take the 2015 MCAT. Oh well.

    I'm hoping someone can answer this. Since the exam is changing would people still buy older MCAT review books? I'm taking it in January and am hoping to get rid of my Berkeley + Princeton books if I do well.

    If you're hoping to recoup some money by selling back your MCAT books to someone, then the odds are really slim that it would at all be worth it. You'd have to sell them so cheaply to convince someone to use old books. Honestly I'd just give them away for the good karma from the universe. Help out someone you know is struggling money-wise by giving them your old books and get a few points with the MCAT karma gods ;)
