    I wanted to know does the online material include verbal practice and is the material of the verbal workbook assigned as classwork/homework are do you do it on your own time?

    I was able to found a mock schedule online and I saw they had put practice test on the computer so i was wondering if they were princeton or AAMC test.

    Also the In-class compendium is done in class or as homework.
    Princeton states

    3,000+ pages of comprehensive, up–to–date materials (delivered via forklift). Each subject set includes content review, practice questions and practice passages
    MCAT Physics and Math Review: Close to 500 pages
    MCAT General Chemistry Review: More than 300 pages
    MCAT Biology Review: 500+ pages
    MCAT Organic Chemistry Review: In excess of 300 pages
    MCAT Verbal Reasoning and Writing Review: 400+ pages
    Science Workbook, hundreds of MCAT–style practice passages and questions with complete explanations (900+ pages)
    Verbal Workbook,about 300 pages, including dozens of MCAT practice passages and four full–length Verbal Reasoning practice tests with complete explanations
    In–Class Passage Compendium, the equivalent of five MCATs' worth of additional test questions
    Science Review Questions and Solutions, hundreds of practice questions designed to make sure that the basic science concepts are firmly embedded in your brain.
    Access to LiveGradersm for feedback on your essay from an MCAT essay specialist

    Is the Science Review Questions and Solutions a different book or an online material if not what is it?

    To answer your question yes.
    I took the Princeton Review Prep course this past April and the online passages were a lot harder than the passages presented in the workbook. I felt that they were comparable to the AAMC test. The subject books bascially reteach you every topic that may be presented on the MCAT, which for me was a good thing. The passages in the In-Compendium are as difficult as the online passages , so I think it would be best to keep up with the class and do the online passages too. The course provides you with 11TPR exams and 9AAMC exams. Although I take my real MCAT next Tuesday, I believe the course has prepared me , but the preparation also depends on the amount of work you put in as well. Good luck!:luck:

    I am taking the class next may and it ends in July..I will be shadowing along with this. Do you think I should NOT do the the science workbook and just do the online questions. Is the science workbook just a bunch of question or is it divided in subtopics to be used along with the review books....Is the online question just a bunch of question or is it divided in subtopics to be used along with the review books ?

    Also the science questions, Princeton MCAT and AAMC MCAT that are online do you have access to them anywhere or just at the center.

    DO the SCIENCE WORKbOOK. They only assign you a few problems per day. Do you like wasting 2 grand?

    The online questions are basically freestanding passages. These are really beneficially because you can do a passage (4-6 questions) then immediately see what you did wrong. This also get you used to taking the computer based MCAT.

    If you have access to TPR website, then you can use it anywhere you want.

    Do the HW. They give you a set of problems and passasges specific to a particular set of topics, so its not a pain in the butt.

    Why you bump this thread so many times?

    Just machine it and do everything indiscriminate of where its from. That what I've been doing. Just power though as many questions as you can. Review mistakes. DO more problems. MORE MORE MORE. You'll never get better at recalling information unless you do a lot of practice.

    Gather all your questions for couple of days, then ask your princeton office about all these things.

    This is not some TPR course Q&A forum =P
