    I have decided that I will take the new MCAT at the end of my spring semester in May/June. When should I start preparing and what review materials are available? Also how many hours per day do you guys usually put into MCAT studying?

    Try to use the search function at the top "new MCAT" would be a good way to start. A lot of people have known in advance for it.

    To get an overview go here:


    if you click on the link below, go to "learn More" under each picture.


    It will show you just the breakdown of what to expect. Again, there is advice on the forums here using the search function as well. This has been the best tool for me as I look at how it changes and slowly integrate my class material along with the new format.

    Thanks for posting the links. For some of us who are reluctant to admit to ourselves that we have to take this new exam, it's a nice place to start. As far as SDN postings go, it seems to be a lot of speculation and information (possibly misinformation) overload from the tutoring company. I'm apt to trust AAMC to tell me what to do for their exam than anyone else.
