    I was wondering what people were using to prepare for the MCATs.

    I messed up the last part of my vote, but I bought AAMC "practice items". It was cheap and a good review of material (although not an accurate representation of current passages). The verbal passages were good, though.

    Get the practice tests and Examkrackers -- the only way to go.

    I read my Gen Chem, Orgo, and Bio, and Physics books. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> Haha, dude, you mean that night we both spent wasting time in the lounge editing and deleting posts, usurping identities, etc, didn't put you in a loose enough mood to rock this exam?

    I used Peterson's Gold Standard MCAT book. The review material is concise and clear, and they have three really challenging practice exams, that make the actual exam look a lot easier. I really recommend it to everyone that doesnt have $1000+ do spend on a review course. It also has advice for the writing and verbal sections, interviews and academic success in general. Totally worth the $60.

    Kaplan MCAT review - I didn't take an MCAT class, but learned the same stuff my friends in the class did. I liked the Kaplan book because it broke things down and had a couple sample test sections. (can't say as how my scores compare yet, it's been less then a week since I took it...)
