MCAT Prep Course

An affordable, effective prep course which adapts to you!

  • Content broken up into mini-lectures.
  • Self-Assessment Exams to help personalize your studying.
  • Includes AAMC’s Full-length Practice Exams & Study Guide.
  • Developed by 6 professors.

We created a practical professor developed course based upon the AAMC’s requirements for the MCAT that is adaptable to your unique knowledge base to help you prepare for the MCAT in a reasonable amount of time. The best part is… it’s REALLY affordable.

We started by assembling a team of professors that teach the content full-time at the university level and asked them to create a course that will allow students to prepare for the MCAT within an 8-12 week period.

Why 8-12 weeks? That’s because our research has shown us that the majority of students spends on average 8-12 weeks to prepare for their MCAT exam. To develop an effective MCAT Prep Course, we needed to understand how students studied. 8-12 weeks was the average amount of time that the vast majority of students prepare for this important exam.

The question then becomes, “How do I cover 3-4 years of content in 8-12 weeks?” We didn’t know either, so we asked our professors. This course is their response. It was developed to ensure the maximum coverage in the time allotted. Essentially, it is a practical approach to maximizing your knowledge base in a limited amount of time. Think of it as a professor developed strategy for students to prepare for your exam. Who would you trust more than your professor to help you prepare for an exam?

Next, we break the content up to help you be more targeted in your studying to ensure efficiency. Instead of wading through hours of content on Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, etc., you are now able to cover content by topic.

Additionally, we added a series of assessments to track our your progress and help you to map out your areas of strengths and weaknesses. This is a vital part of the course which allows you to be much more efficient, rather than wasting your time on what you already know.

We also include full-length practice exams from AAMC’s MCAT Practice Online and The Official Study Guide to the MCAT Exam (MCAT2015). Why do we offer these practice exams? It’s pretty simple. We want this to be as close to the actual MCAT as possible and despite what other prep companies claim, no one knows what is on MCAT except the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).

The best part is that this course is entirely accessible by any computer or mobile device. You should be able to study where and when it’s convenient for you and not on someone else’s schedule. Be sure to check out our mobile app for iOS and Android devices.

It’s time to consider a practical option as you prepare for your MCAT. An option that has developed by professors and does not require another student loan. It’s time for CE Webinar.
