Whilst studying for the MCAT, should all the review materials cover topics you should already know? Have you frequently found yourself studying new information due to poor professors? Wondering if I am the only one.

There are definitely tidbits some people will have learned based on what schools they go to. But it shouldn't be an EXCEPTIONAL amount. We're talking maybe 1-2 topics per section at MOST... It's weird tho, because the things I did just learn, after you study it, you see that it relates to stuff you already learned anyway. So, anything new, shouldn't be COMPLETELY new either.

Do you mean that after you take your pre-req there should only be 1-2 topics that are new or that after pre-reqs there should only be 1-2 topics you learned from those classes? It sounds like you're saying the later.....I hope I'm mistaken and it's the former.
