Hey guys, planning to take PCAT for the 1st time in June, little scared/nervous about it. What are some best, quick ways to study for PCAT? Also, what should I know about the writing part of the PCAT? Thanks a lot.

i used the kaplan PCAT book and the examkrackers MCAT book.
you might want to buy another book for the math section...they are both weak when it comes to the math portion

Practice doing the sections with less time. A lot of people I know couldn't finish the sections in time. Sometimes the easiest questions are at the end of the section which means if you get stuck on a question do not hestiate to skip it and finish the section. Go back later if you have time.

Don't be afraid to miss some questions. It seems like you can really bomb one section and get a 80%, two sections and get a 70%. For example, my friend got low 30's in verbal and didn't finish the math section but still got 85% overall.

Besides that try Kaplan books and anything else that is out there.
