    Okay I'm hoping to draw from the wisdom and experience of all you fellow SDNers. What is the best strategy for studying for the MCAT? What advice can you give me, what did you wish you had done differently and what did you find to be the most helpful? Thanks in advance!

    LOL

    Smitty, go check out the MCAT forum and see what you find. This has been discussed ad nauseum. You can also do a search in the forum.

    get those examkracker books, right away. Read and re-read them, and then in the last two months, just do exams and review them inside out. Best thing to do is aim for 15's, and think of yourself as a MCAT "know it all".

    Lots and lots of practice tests. Make sure you know why you missed every single question you miss. I took a Kaplan MCAT review course (actually took it twice, 'cuz I didn't buckle down enough the first time, so ended up being an August test-taker). The classes weren't as helpful as their materials. and their realistic, timed practice tests.

    I'm moving this to the MCAT forum.

    Why don't you hang out with us MCAT kiddies in there? I am sure your MCAT questions will be answered there.
