I need some serious help with the physics portion of the MCAT. I've heard Nova is good for reading/content, and BR is good for passages and practice. I need content and practice, any suggestions?

Dude, seriously?

THE Berkley review, period.

I don't know much about NOVA, but Im using TBR and love it because I understand it. Also, because of the abundance of practice passages.

NOVA, I've heard is good, too. But it lacks MCAT format practice passages.

Thus, TBR wins vs. EK/Kaplan/Nova/TPR/etc for the physical/biological sciences. For verbal, get EK 101.

If you're physics retarted like I am, get both. NOVA is easy to understand and their practice problems are a lot of drill and kill so you get the basics down. But you should definitely supplement with Berkeley so you get practice with MCAT-style passages. Sometimes Berkeley explains things better and their little memorization hints are pure gold, so read it too.
