    Hey Guys,

    I know there have been threads going on the MCAT-prep.com videos by Brett Ferdinand, but I was looking to find out what people thought about the Visual Aid DVD series for the MCAT.

    Thanks

    Theyre not that bad I guess. What is discussed in the DVDs are discussed well but I feel as if they are entirely too short.

    Put it this way you could memorize the DVDs for all the sections and it would only be about 5% of the knowledge you need for the MCAT.

    I dunno- I dont think they are helping me too much.

    I think that you are talking about the mcat-prep videos; the visual aid are actually very long and comprehensive in my opinion:rolleyes:

    also the physics seemed more than what u need for the mcat. What do others think? if u think they are helpful, how do u use them?

    well, I agree: they aren't teachers on visual aid, they're readers. It's boring, and even though they claim that it's updated, it's not: they always refer to the old structure of the MCAT.

    It's a great product, actually. Very highly condensed if you're pressed for time which might work for some people. I skimmed through all of my old notes and textbooks then watched the videos. Scored 30P on my first try.:rolleyes:
