How far in advance did you start studying for the PCAT? I have a prep book, but I'm crazy busy and won't get a chance to crack it open till June or so. I'm planning to take the PCAT in October or November (depending on when my fall break is).
How far along are you in school? You probably won't need to review that much, I found that the PCAT tested a lot of knowledge that couldnt really be studied for that well. The PCAT guides were helpful because it gave me an idea of what to expect as far as length and content on the test, but none of the ones I used were really that useful. I did use some of the word exercise type books that are supposed to help build your vocabulary a bit, I thought they helped because it worked on prefixes, roots and suffixes rather than learning actual words...Modnar said:How far in advance did you start studying for the PCAT?

any suggestion on the materials ?Personally, I think that in order to get a good grade in PCAT, we need 4-6 months, dont procrasiate until the last minutes because it wont work quite well...I remember that the first time I took PCAT in last August with barely 2 months studying [ actually I didn't study that much, and I only completed Organic Chem II, did not take Bio 2] and I got 59%...Second time in Octorber [around 1-2 months after ) I got 76%...and the last time I took it in Jan [ just review over ] and I got 91%...The amount of studying was less for the next time, but I got higher grades because I studied step by step and dont wait until the last minutes to do it. I had a friend, and he studied for a year [just take it slowly, a little day by day], and he got 96% for the first time took it...In addition, there is another friend stuyding with me...He got 51% for August test, and for last jan test, he got 88%....We, three, all got accepted to Univeristy of Florida College of Pharmacy next Fall 2008....Trust me guys, you will have a lot of time until next year...Therefore, take it from now....
I got accepted to UF for next Fall 08 today, only applied for two school, UF and Nova....when were you accepted?
