Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
I like this book because it gives solid, yet simple advice that’s easy to understand without having a lot of extra unnecessary jargon in it. I like that everything I need is in this book and it includes the video links to topics I need refreshed on vacation having to go searching for another source. I look forward to checking out your flash cards too. I just wish there was a mobile version/app that I could take with me everywhere
My feedback for this product is: great! I have been reading this book for a little over 2 weeks now, and it is making all the subjects I need to know for the MCAT seem so simple. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is studying for the MCAT. I wish I would have bought it sooner. It is even helping me in the classes that I am in now.

Full disclosure, I received a copy of this book to review and my knowledge of the MCAT is from when I took the test in early 2017. Much like other study guides, this guide is just that (a guide that is). I gives an overview on all relevant topics (with a test with so many topics as the MCAT, this leads to quite a large collection of overviews), but does not delve too deeply into specifics. This can be to the benefit of the reader, assuming they're fresh out of a pre-med undergraduate program or have had extensive experiences in the biomedical profession. If you've been out of college for a while (or never worked in the biomedical field) this guide is still helpful, as it can help you direct your study efforts more efficiently (although you may become overwhelmed with the sheer amount of information being thrown at you). The major drawback to this study guide is all practice questions come in the form of a single practice MCAT. It would have been far more helpful to have questions at the end of each section and a practice MCAT.
I was struggling with trying to pass the MCAT and nothing that I came across was able to help me get "over the hump."
That was until a classmate of mine told me about MCAT Secrets Study Guide for the 2019 & 2020 Testing Year. This book was a Godsend as it helped me understand and retain the material. Not only is it filled with extensive information you'll need to pass the test, it also comes with a group of test questions that close to the ones on the actual test.
The Guide is easy to read and will help you retain information as it is constructed in a logical and organized fashion. What I find refreshing is that the Guide will not drown the user in long worded entries or terms that make no sense.
If you want to get a leg up on your competition and pass the MCAT with flying colors, then I wholeheartedly recommend MCAT Secrets Study Guide 2019 & 2020.

No words can explain how amazing this study guide is! It’s well organized, gives you testing tips, and helps you understand the content inside and out! I truly couldn’t pass without this book. But it and you won’t regret it!
The MCAT Prep Book is a great study guide for nursing students starting off & nurses for refreshing. The secret key steps, test-taking strategies and the how to overcome test anxiety is a great help and should be paid very close attention. This book is jam packed with quality and resourceful information. I would recommend this book to that student that wants to get ahead and get a head start on his or her studies. This book gives you the space & opportunity to break down how you test yourself whether it's as a whole or as an individual test after studying each section.
