Hi everyone! I'm starting my content review for the MCAT which I'm planning to take on January 21st. I'm thinking about doing 1-2 passages 6 days a week. What do you guys recommend I do? What resources do you all recommend? Thank you so much

Hi there! The AAMC’s CARS Packages, Volumes 1 and 2, are the best practice since they are the best representatives of actual test material. Practicing with realistic material is key, as it will help you get familiarized with it and reduce stress and anxiety on the day of your test. Remember that for each passage you review, you should highlight key concepts and ideas, identify the main point of each paragraph, and the main thesis of the whole passage. Then you should answer the questions and try to get approximately 90% of answers correct consistently from passage to passage. You also MUST do outside reading to succeed on CARS (i.e., newspapers, Humanities and social sciences journal articles, sociology, economics and politics, philosophy, and literature). It’s not an easy road, but if you are committed and consistent in your practice, you can be successful at this. Best of luck!

Do AAMC materials multiple times. There is nothing on the market as good as AAMC materials. I tried literally everything (had to take it twice because I faceplanted CARS my first sitting), and doing AAMC a second or third time is better than doing anything else.
