Hey I need everyone's input on my situation.
I want to take the PCAT this coming August and October but...

I haven't taken the following classes:
- Microbiology
- Human Anatomy & Physiology
- Statistics

Q1: Will I be fine studying by myself for the coming summer?
Q2: Are PCAT prep material sufficient or should I buy/rent text books for the classes above?
Q3: Does Kaplan and/or Dr. Collins teach you the above material or simply review the topics?

Thanks!

1. yes
2. yes and no...Dr Collins and the Kaplan books together should be sufficient. You don't need a new Kaplan book. Also, if you did take Bio I and II, your textbook probably has some physiology stuff in it.
3. Dr Collins is a great resource. Definitely use it for biology.
