Very Good Source for the MCAT
May 16, 2019
As someone who's taken the MCAT, this book provides nearly everything you will need for it. The manner in which the content is presented also contributes a good level of depth into topics which the reader may be learning for the first time or might have forgotten. The book contains helpful practice problems in the Biology, Chemistry and Physics sections that can help test the reader's familiarity with the subjects.
The book does contain minor grammatical errors and some involving practice problems (which are easily distinguishable). This is understandable, as many MCAT resources tend to contain these errors considering the vast amount of information that they cover. It would have also been good to include practice problems in the Psychology/Sociology section, as this section does require more than simple memorization.
There are a few specific things that aren't present in the Biology and Psychology/Sociology sections of this book (ex. every enzyme involved in glucose metabolism). While this isn't completely necessary, the unpredictable nature of questions on the MCAT may make this a minor hindrance for the few random questions that ask you to know this information. While I often tell others to use multiple sources to study for the MCAT, I believe this book contains a solid base from which around 95% of the necessary material is present.
The majority of the book came in good condition, yet the exterior edges of the book were somewhat worn. Since it is a paperback book that was transported in a package envelope, this is somewhat expected. Overall, this is a very good book that I would recommend as a main resource of review for the MCAT. It occupies a "Goldilocks" zone in terms of its content and presentation, not too overwhelming for a newcomer looking to prepare for the MCAT.
