Are all the tools from the AAMC FLs (highlighting, strikeout function...) available in your practice tests?

Is there a difference between the CARS tests and the CARS sections from the FLs?

How often do you recommend students do the 7 practice tests in the 3 month course?

What is the format for your practice tests review? Do you provide a way for practice test takers to select reasons why they had questions wrong or right and make notes on questions as part of the practice test package?

Are the practice tests closely related to the current MCAT?

For people prepping for MCAT in a 3 month window, do you normally advise students to take a practice test every week?

We do not believe that you should re-take any MCAT practice tests, whether they be from Gold Standard, the AAMC, or otherwise. The reason is that you can recognize the information in the passage and questions and so the exam experience is nothing like the real exam. Instead, we suggest spending 1-2 days reviewing your practice exam experience - right and wrong answers for both assumed knowledge and reasoning - and then you take very brief notes which you review several times per week leading up to the exam so that the information always remains fresh.

We do not have a drop-down menu for choosing reasons but every one of our exam questions come with a chat thread that follows the explanations so students can share thoughts about that particular question or ask one of our experts for clarification about any aspect of the question or explanation.

We don't have this feature in our practice exams at the moment. However, we do provide detailed explanations for each question and a comment system for you to submit your feedback or request for clarifications on the respective question.
Ok. Thank you very much.

Why do you beat your competitors? Do you offer something the others do not?

All of our full-length practice tests have have a very unique feature: every single practice problem has a chat window where you can ask our MCAT experts any question about that particular problem or read what others had already discussed. As far as we know, no other MCAT prep company offer this feature.

We take pride in teaching students. Our aim is to develop your reasoning skills - we don't just provide right or wrong answers. We teach.

We use the AAMC format in terms of timing, the balance of subjects and the balance of easy/difficult, research/old MCAT-style. We are the first ever MCAT company that offered MCAT practice tests online - even before the AAMC. And we have been doing this since 1991 - we know the MCAT inside out ;)
