    Hello all, so most of you may know by now that the pcat has updated so anyone that has the collins packets prior to the 2016-2017 update let me tell you the only thing useful about it is breaking down the basics and key concepts. However the format and structure of the test has change. Invest in an up to date collins, as well as practice practice practice on pearson review for the sake of time as well as to get into the habit of being exposed to the testing format. Molec and cell, tissues, and disease! Know it!

    I used collins from 2014-2015 to study for the Jan '17 PCAT. 99 CHEM/BIO, 98 composite. It worked fine.

    It is very so recommended that everyone get the '16-'17 collins i feel it will prepare you better for the test! Congrats on your score!

    In case someone didn't take microbiology yet, You should supplement with a microbiology book. Kaplan really lacks microbiology, especially in naming microbs.
