Product Description

ExamKrackers probably has the best prep books for MCAT. It covers all the topics on the MCAT, and explains the concepts quite well. So far, I haven't had the need to use textbooks. They also have a very attractive layout of the material that makes reading enjoyable. I also appreciate that it comes with a full MCAT past paper, in addition to the multiple practice questions already in the books. If you had to choose just one prep company to go with, go with ExamKrackers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as comprehensive as I would like it to be May 22 2014

Pros:
Books are not as thick as TPR (motivates you more)
Colorful pages and fun to read
Different writing style than most textbooks
Mcqs available every 5 pages with explainations to the right and wrong answers
Cons:
Not enough examples for physics and orgo
Requires a higher than expected level of comprehension of the material beforehand

Suggestions: should probably check out the EK web page where the extra tools and forums are
Buy the TPR book for physics
Get Kaplan practice tests for $30+ on amazon( the difficulty is rumored to be Kaplan>mcat>aamc

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Set Jan. 13 2014
By Cyrus - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a great set to study from. Just to clarify as the description of this item is not clear, you will receive 5 study books in the package. A chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, physics, and verbal reasoning study manual. They come in a convenient box to hold them in and it also includes a full length, separate practice MCAT. It is cheaper to buy this box set than the individual books and it includes the practice test, which is a great resource to have. Also, this is the newest edition out there. The last edition (7th) is from 2007 and therefore a little dated where these ones are from 2013 and therefore up to date.

As for the books themselves, I've only gone through the physics and organic chemistry ones so far, but they are actually kind of fun to read! They include vivid, color pictures that describe the concepts incredibly well. Usually, I just skip over complicated diagrams and pictures in text books, but the ones in the manuals are very helpful and easy to understand. These manuals also do not read like traditional text books. Writing is broken up and only the essential, need to know ideas are included to avoid waisting your time learning topics that will not be found on the MCAT. However, if you are not familiar with some concepts and ideas than these manuals can make you a little confused as the author kind of assumes that you have a general knowledge of what he is talking about. So if you have never taken a physics class before or remember barely anything from it, then these books might confuse you as they skip some fundamental points.

I did a lot of research on whether to go ExamKrackers or Kaplan Review for MCAT books, and I can say I'm glad I bought this set. I'll be sure to update this review once I've taken the MCAT to see if these books really helped me.

3.0 out of 5 stars just okay Jan. 30 2014
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com

I was recommended this set of books to study for the mcat. The books are good at highlighting the major principles and concepts that you need to know. They are horrible, however, at explaining these concepts. The text is often dense and poorly worded, and the examples unclear. They also do not address how to actually solve problems. The books are also full of errors, both scientific and grammatical. The authors list a disclaimer about errors being a "normal" part of science, but the amount of errors in these books are unacceptably high. In my opinion, these books need a very thorough editing to make them more clear and accurate. If you purchase these, I would use them as an outline to study. Refer to them to figure out the major concepts that you need to study, and then go back to your textbooks from your classes to review the material. Also, make sure you purchase another set of study questions as well because there are definitely not enough practice questions in the set to adequately prepare you for the exam.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but dense June 25 2014

Great review if you know your content. Does a good job of highlighting the big concepts. However, if you do not know a concept this book is not the ideal place to learn it for the first time. I recommend to all my friends that they use these books and take as many practice exams as possible to prep for the mcat instead of spending countless precious hours reviewing content they already know.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it! June 4 2014

It is written in simple language and it is a good review if you remember the concepts roughly from before. Some concepts are mentioned too briefly I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... all this time to say that Examkrackers was THE BEST review source for any exam I have ever had ... July 15 2014
By David S Priemer - Published on Amazon.com
I am a 4th year medical student I'm coming back here after all this time to say that Examkrackers was THE BEST review source for any exam I have ever had to take, including in medical school. Give yourself 10-12 weeks for this exam, be orderly and follow the suggested plan they give you in the book or on their site(to which I would add taking a full paid practice MCAT every week) and you will 1) Feel ridiculously confident about the exam and 2) Rock the exam. Nothing is better.
