MCAT Study and Test Taking Strategies, Explained
The bad news is that the MCAT is a behemoth of a test. The good news is that you don’t have to be alone in preparing for it. At Prep101, there are instructors who know the material, who understand the test, and who can help you to succeed.
Here are some tips to help you to get started.
Find a study plan and stick to it
The MCAT is massive, so start well in advance. Make yourself a study plan. Include both revision of science courses and principles, and test-taking practice.
At Prep101, the instructors will work with you, and help you to stick to your preparation plan. They’ve helped thousands of pre-med students over the years.
Figure out MCAT structure and time-management
Don’t just study the material. Study how to take the test itself.
Learn how to structure your time. Figure out who much time you need to spend on each section, to keep to a schedule. Learn to triage the questions within the section to make sure that you can get as many correct answers as possible.
At Prep101, qualified instructors will not only walk you through it, they’ll help you to practice.
Learn the best study methods and exam writing strategies
The MCAT may be a behemoth, but it has predictable patterns. Learn those patterns. Learn which study methods work, and which exam-writing strategies have been proven to boost your grade.
The instructors at Prep101 will teach all this, and explain how to apply it.
Study smart. Practice as much as possible, and always check your work. Bonus marks if you can find someone to comment on your progress, and to give you tips.
At Prep101, dry-run MCATS and in-class practice mini-tests with individual feedback tell you where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and help you to track your progress.
