Overview


Completely revised and expanded, the new Barron's MCAT test prep manual with enclosed CD-ROM provides test takers with an in-depth, easy-to-use science review and a set of often-neglected but critical time-management strategies for test taking that cover reading comprehension, essay writing, and scientific problem solving. These strategies have been developed by the book's team of authors, based on their many years of hands-on MCAT training experience.

The book opens with a detailed overview of the exclusively computer-based test The comprehensive set of strategies that follows comes with advice on apportioning and focusing study time and managing stress. A special section instructs test takers in the advanced timing and testing strategies they'll need to maximize their score when they take the actual MCAT. Every part of the 4-hour and 20-minute test is explained and analyzed in detail and supplemented with sample questions. A diagnostic test follows to help students determine areas where they most need to focus their study efforts.

Six review chapters cover the test's four sections:

  • Physical Sciences (General Chemistry and Physics)
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • The two MCAT Essays
  • Biological Sciences (Biology and Organic Chemistry)
    Each review chapter concludes with a test that reflects the MCAT format. All questions are answered and explained. Following the review chapters, two additional full-length model MCATs are presented with answer keys and answer explanations.

The new edition's highlights include:

  • Critical strategies for timing, test taking, scientific problem solving, verbal reasoning, and the test's writing sample.
  • Expanded science review chapters that specifically cover test topics as recommended by the AAMC. The concise and clearly written science review is designed to give students an understanding of concepts rather than merely presenting facts for them to memorize. To this end, the review uses frequent examples, practice problems, and diagrams to clarify concepts.
  • Practice MCAT tests that have been carefully designed to represent the specific patterns of actual MCAT questions and passages.
  • A comprehensive, multi-month study plan.

The CD-ROM enclosed with the book presents two additional practice MCATs in the computer-based format, thus closely imitating actual test-taking conditions and offering the added convenience of automatic scoring. All practice MCATs on the CD-ROM are specially designed to capture the underlying patterns of the actual MCAT.

This new edition of Barron's MCAT manual with CD-ROM was reviewed for authenticity of detail by an advisory team of current premed students at schools across the country.

    This book is chock full of mistakes.  I unfortunately bought this book without looking up reviews, and only now realize what a terrible idea that was.  I started with organic chemistry and just 15 pages in, I've already found three mistakes.  The book describes sigma bonds as pi bonds, and vice versa.  It says cholesterol has seven chiral carbons (eight is the correct number) and provides a picture of a cholesterol molecule with the seven chiral carbons labeled (I don't even know how the author can make such a glaringly obvious mistake with the picture right there!)  And even better, the book spells "lone pair" as "loan pair".  Come on, the book looks like Barron's commissioned a sixth grader to learn chemistry in a month and then write a book about it.  What a mess this book is.  I'm buying a different company's book right away.  Avoid Barron's unless you want to lower your score because Barron's simply gives you incorrect information.

    I bought this book and have found that it is riddled with errors throughout the text,
    the practice questions and even in the tests.  Recycling the book because that is all it is good for.
