    Does anybody know anything about this product, Secrets of the MCAT? The website seems pretty sketchy, but I'll take all of the help I can get.

    Didn't know it wouldn't let me post the site.

    Sorry if that was a faux pas there. :)

    Definitely seems sketchy to me. I doubt there are any huge secrets not available from SDN/Kaplan/TPR/anything. I think the AAMC works very hard to make sure the test is objective, and that there are no huge surprises or secrets.

    TN-
    I don't wanna enter the legal wonderland of slander/libel, so you'll have to read between the lines.
    I ordered the secrets... (got it as a gift). I'm happy that I didn't waste...oops..."spend" my money on it. It's long, but 1/3 or more of it is a glossary, and gives tips like "when you guess, make it a random guess".
    I did spend my money on EK and the thick Kaplan book, and I'm glad I did.
    Best of luck.

  8. Seems very questionable. I'd avoid it, personally.

    I got it as part of a package- not terribly informative.

    The only good thing is said was that the more scientifically sounding answers usually seem more correct--I observed this. Besides it's a huge waste of $30.
