    How long before the August MCAT should one start studying.
    I just started studying last week (so I guess I have about two months).
    Any advice on a study strategy to help me make the best use of the little time I have.
    (I'm taking the MCAT for the first time.)

    Also what is an acceptable science gpa. Is it calculated based on the medical school prerequisites or based on every science/math class you've ever taken. (I'm a chem major that's why I was wondering).

    2 months of studying is great if you've learned a lot of the material before. That's what I did last summer. Until two weeks before the test, I studied 15-20 hours a week on top of my summer job and any time spent going to Princeton Review MCAT classes. Then during the last 2 weeks before the test I wasn't working, so I bumped up the studying time to 4-5 hours a day.
