With the new 2015 MCAT, many different companies have come out with revisions to their study guides. Although you could spend $200 on Kaplan books alone to study, Khan Academy has recently updated their video collection to fit the new 2015 MCAT and it’s free.
All you need to do is sign up and you can view a large array of instructional videos on MCAT topics ranging from:
- Critical analysis and reasoning skills
- Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems Passages
- Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems Passages
- Organ systems
- Physical processes
- Chemical processes
- Processing the environment
- Individuals and Society
- Society and Culture
- Social inequality
Is This Enough to Prepare for the MCAT?
Khan Academy is undoubtedly very useful to premeds — it has over 1000 videos and 2800 practice questions. However, as Khan Academy itself admits, it is not meant to be a program of study. If you have no guidance, it may be difficult to make sense of Khan Academy’s large collection of MCAT study material.
Although you need other material to ace the MCAT, you want to spend the least amount of money, but also get excellent results. The MCAT Club runs for only $24.95 per month (and right now is on special at $19.95 per month) — with an expansive library of all the material you need to ace the MCAT. There is no need to waste time in figuring out your study plans. Instead, the MCAT Club has been updated for the 2015 MCAT and will provide you with the guidance that will allow you to get those high scores you want.
