by Hugo R. I have spent several weeks preparing for the MCAT with this book. It not only refreshes your memory about the biological and physical sciences; but also provides you with sound test-taking advice. The book's strongest attributes are the Model Examinations. Out of all the prep books I have used, Barron's practice exams test both your academic knowledge and your ability to take the MCAT test.

The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is a computer-based standardized examination for prospective medical students in the United States, Australia, Canada, and Caribbean Islands. It is designed to assess problem solving, critical thinking, written analysis and knowledge of scientific concepts and principles. Prior to 2006, the exam was a paper-and-pencil test; since 2007, all administrations of the exam have been computer-based.

Not Now. Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is. .The test is intended to gauge applicants' preparedness for the challenges of medical school.

The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is an important tool used by medical school admissions committees. For many students, a sense of mystery and confusion surrounds the exam, so we created this basic overview to answer the most frequently asked questions about the MCAT. How is the MCAT scored? You will receive five separate scores for the MCAT exam: one from each of the four sections, and a total score.

For one thing, it now takes nearly eight hours to complete the exam (the old one took around five hours)

The Medical College Admission Exam (MCAT) is widely considered to be one of the most difficult academic tests in existence. Some medical colleges in Canada also use the exam. The MCAT has recently undergone some significant changes. For one thing, it now takes nearly eight hours to complete the exam (the old one took around five hours). Second, the essay, or Writing Sample, has been completely scrapped; medical education experts said it was no longer very useful at predicting success in medical school.

The MCAT as it is now given is a solely computer-based exam, and Barron's brand-new edition of the MCAT manual offers test preparation that is specifically focused to respond to that format. The manual's introduction presents a detailed overview of the test, and follows with strategies for study, stress management, and test taking. The bulk of this book is given over to extensive reviews in science and math, followed by advice on writing the MCAT essay. Four full-length model MCATs are then presented with answer keys and answer explanations.
I have spent several weeks preparing for the MCAT with this book. It not only refreshes your memory about the biological and physical sciences; but also provides you with sound test-taking advice. The book's strongest attributes are the Model Examinations. Out of all the prep books I have used, Barron's practice exams test both your academic knowledge and your ability to take the MCAT test.

While I would recommend it for those preparing for the MCAT, it does not take the place of taking the actual classes during the undergraduate years. In the authors' defense, the book does mention that when studying the physical sciences section, it is best to have an actual physics textbook with you to study and practice the concepts in more detail.
Haven't read it yet, but it was recommended to me from people that have already gotten accepted to medical school
1) Too many mistakes:
E.g , it says anode is where reduction occurs in a chemical cell which is wrong, if you believe in it then you'll lose point in MCAT.

2) Wrong focus:
E.g. The level of o-chem required for the MCAT is minimal, but it talks a lot about spectroscopy & experimental techniques which are not highly tested+ only the very basics are required to know.
E.g. Physics is overly complicated, contains tons of useless derivations and contain equations that won't be tested. (MCAT physics is NOT math-oriented AT ALL, however this books contains 90% calculation practice problems).

3) Not comprehensive:
E.g. Some essential topics in o-chem are missing, such as Sn1, Sn2

4) The passages are not real MCAT like at all. They are significantly easier than the real thing.

5) Some outdated material:
E.g. There is no more writing section,
E.g. Angular momentum is not tested.

*** TIPS: I highly recommend you to take prep courses (they are expensive but it's a good investment if you could afford it)
*** If you prefer self-studying, then you MUST download the pdf about the topics covered for each subject from AAMC official website. ONLY study what's on the list, do NOT study anything else or you'd be wasting your time.
I bet you saw the price on this MCAT book and got all excited. Other books don't even compare, price-wise. That's what I thought when I decided to buy it. I thought it was a good starting point. It's not. It spends two hundred pages on biology and about fifteen on chemistry. Its physics section is terrible and you get the sense that the company did not do their research as to what is actually on the MCAT. I used the study outlines on the official MCAT site and tried to find and read about each topic in this textbook, but the subjects rarely paralleled. The biology section was loaded with plenty of terms you don't need to know, which, along with the occasional spelling mistake, led to utter confusion. I feel like I did not learn much, and I egret having spent the summer with no text other than this one. Go the extra mile and spend the extra $50 for a real book. You're going to want to buy one anyway after you get this book and realize how unhelpful it is.
As pointed out by other reviewers, the new edition is quite superior. I found it to be comprehensive, well-thought out and well organized -- and considerably better in the areas of choice of subject matter. The latter is the reason why I jettisoned the Kaplan book I'd bought. The new Barron's is clearly better in terms of value for the price.

I've never even posted a review in 12 or so years of being an Amazon customer but this book desperately needs one. I wish someone had reviewed it before I bought it.

Avoid this book at all costs; even if you're already scoring in the high 30s and have used every other resource. It will only serve to confuse you and dilute the already massive amount of material you're expected to know.

The questions in this book are nothing like the questions on the AAMC (real) tests. The material review completely misses the mark; you are not expected to know detailed cellular biology of the tooth. Orgo of alkynes, something that was specifically removed from the MCAT this year, shows up in this book as well. Quadratic equations! mechanical advantage!! Lazzaro Spallanzani!!! I'm not making this stuff up. I don't think the authors bothered to look at the outline of material a test-taker is supposed to know (which is, btw, available directly from AAMC ... just google "MCAT topics AAMC").

SAVE YOUR MONEY.
I didn't use the book for review, only for practice exams. The questions are either ridiculously easy, or totally confusing and almost impossible to answer. The physical and biological science sections, you didn't even need to read the passages to answer most of the questions because they were straight recall questions. Verbal was the most confusing, they were either ridiculously easy or had no real answer. I wouldn't recommend this book at all.
This book is an old edition. It might work well for you if you need a low price. The new book Barron's MCAT with CD-ROM is much expanded and completely revised.
