I bought quite a few books to study for the MCAT - the entire Exam Krackers study package and question books, and the Gold Standard MCAT book. The only one that I can say absolutely made a huge difference for me was the MCAT Physics Book. I did awful (like, embarrassingly awful!) in both semesters of physics in college and essentially had to start from scratch when preparing for the MCAT. I wish I would have had this book when I was taking physics! It was like 'Hallelujah!", I finally understand. Each chapter effectively and concisely explains the concepts, gives good examples, and is never tedious to read. The practice problems are not MCAT-style format but they are great for learning the material. To anyone taking the MCAT who needs extra help in the physics department, I would say do not rely on EK Physics! This book is exponentially better.
While in my senior year and buckling down for the inevitable MCATs, I realized that my 'formal' physics education was still a bit deficient for the MCATs. This book as a stand-alone is not quite sufficient but as a corollary to a Kaplan/Princeton program, this book is a must have.
I found this book very helpful (for someone who had not had much instruction in physics while in college). I recomended this book to few other people, all of them thought the book was great! Students who are taking Kaplan with me still ask for the book's title. In my opinion, the book gives 'the bigger picture'. There is a lot of stress on the basics which we tend to forget (some-- never learn). Eventhough the question format is not the same as the actual MCAT's, it still offers a very good review and 'preliminary' practice. P.S. Biology text from the same publishing company was not too good.
