Barron's MCATby Jay Cutts
Optimized for the Nook, completely revised and expanded, the new Barron's MCAT provides test takers with an in-depth, easy-to-use science review and 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 experience. The e-Book features include hundreds of hyperlinks that allow users to navigate through content, connect to important Internet resources, and click between questions and answers in model exams and other practice areas.

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.
Don't waste your money on this book. It is full of mistakes and I really wish I had read the reviews before I bought it.
