Hey Future Medical Professionals
So there are two basic ways to study for the MCAT.
- Course: Usually in a Classroom type setting and is highly structured and taught by an instructor.
- Self-Directed: Usually use either an MCAT study book and other supplemental material like old course book. All self-taught and self-paced.
You have to decide what works best for you. There are pros and cons for each. Need help deciding. Well see below:
I am currently studying self-directed. Quite frankly a course is just too much money and I normally do better teaching myself subject matter than I do out of a course because I can spend more times on the things I don’t know and less time on the things I do.
I will soon be making a post about how I study for the MCAT so stay tuned for that.
