    I was wondering if anyone used Schaum's outline to study for the bio section? I know a lot of people use it to study for the DAT bio section.

    Yeah, you're right...schaum is very popular for pre-dents studying for the DAT. I don't think it's the best for the MCAT.

    I agree. Use an MCAT specific bio book (or two). The reason I suggest doing it this way is because the MCAT specific books give you a better idea of the breadth and the depth of material that you can expect on the MCAT. You want to make sure that the bio that you are learning is directly relevant for the MCAT exam.

    Alright, thanks a bunch. I just recently changed my mind to wanting to do Medical school so I thought I would figure out what all I need to buy now. :)
