So far I have:

-AAMC Tests (all) ($245)
-EK complete study package ($110)
-Kaplan premier study book w/e it's called ($70)
-BR physics and gen chem ($100 total)
-7 practice exams from BR ($200)

So I've dished out like $725 so far and this will obviously keep me busy for a bit..but what else should I look to get? I'm not taking any class so I'm fine with spending 1000 give or take. I'd really like more practice exams/questions. I was thinking about getting-

EK 1001 physics and gen chem ($50 total)
EK 101 Verbal ($25)

*Want to find a few more full length CBT's...any idea where I can buy more good ones? Thanks!

Thats an extensive list, and shoudl be good for practice.

Ek 101 VR is definte. Ek 1001 bio is pretty good as well. 1001, phy, cehm and orgo, are not much useful. They are good if you want to drill in on concepts, but they are in no way mcat like. They are basically practice for each of the concepts tested. So its ur call. I went through all 1001s and I thought they were pretty useful.
I c u already have BR physics and cehm. in that case 1001 phy and chem may not be necessary.
More CBTS: try the sales/wnated forum, sometimes ppl are selling and you can get a good deal sometimes.


Good Luck!

Thanks for the advice! I'll get that 101 VR book and maybe get the other ones if I see them cheap online :D. Got about 6 months to go..time to get pumped up! LOL

I'll second the EK 101 verbal passages book. Its passages were the closest thing to the real thing, IMO.
