New MCAT Study Tool (2012)

  • The Official MCAT® Self-Assessment Package is the first online study tool that allows examinees to evaluate how well they know MCAT content and to use that data to better prepare for the exam. Examinees answer questions from previous MCAT exams and receive feedback in an analytic summary outling their strenghts and weaknesses in the content and skills tested on the exam. The tool may be purchased individually, or as a package of three for $104. (If purchased individually, the Physical and Biological Sciences Self-Assessments are $45 and the Verbal Reasoning Self-Assessment is $40.) Students may complete a self-Assessment early in their preparation to identify the weak areas in which to focus their studies or complete it later for extra practice.
