Hey guys, those of you who took the new exam and scored well the 509+ MCAT Study Habits thread is pretty empty . I am sincerely asking if you could spare some time to give back to those who haven't taken the exam as yet and share your thoughts.
Yes I know the 30+ thread is still out there via the search function and being successful in this test hasn't changed much but I am sure the fellow members would appreciate to get a fresh perspective...

PS. This would be a refreshing change to the normal flame wars ... Okay shameless begging is over!

I used Kaplan's full set which prepared me well for P/C and B/BC. CARS I feel is more of an inherent skill, but can definitely be tweaked with practice (EK 101 Verbal). I did not feel particularly prepared for P/PS, and based on what people have said, I'd recommend using Khan Academy/TPR for that section. So all in all, Kaplan for P/C, B/BC, EK 101 for Verbal Practice, and Khan Academy/TPR for P/PS. Other than that, take the 2 AAMC Fls available under timed conditions, and kick ass.

Thank you for your response but can you put it in the correct area so it helps everyone ? This is the thread http://forums.studentdoctor.net/threads/509-mcat-study-habits.1143569/

And this is the format:
1) Your individual scores and composite score
2) The study method used for each section
3) What materials you used for each section(Kaplan, TPR, Examkrackers, AAMC, TBR, etc)
4) Which practice tests did you use? (Optional: include scores)
5) What was your undergraduate major?
6) Any other tips you may have for those of us who still have this test lurking over us?
7) How long did you study for the MCAT?
