I know some people that start studying for it one year in advance… and some that start studying for it 3 weeks before the big day. Personally, I think 3 months is ideal to study for it.
Longer than that, you risk forgetting material quicksheer studied on day 1, and much less than that, you risk not taking enough practice exams and not knowing enough of the high-yield material, especially now that the MCAT added additional courses.
Do you ever check the right answer then second guess yourself and change the answer to the wrong answer?! This gets people every single time. Go with your gut and move on.

Some facts about me first though:. If you can relate to any of these, go ahead and keep reading. Because I am diligent about how I live my life, I chose self-study using Exam Kracker books and coursesaver. My friend let me borrow her books once she was done taking the MCAT and she had done so well, I figured I would give it a shot.
The material was dumbed down 10 notches which for me is peachy keen because I struggle to stay engaged with dry content aham… The Princeton Review, Kaplan, etc.
EK books are also a little humorous, and that was entertaining to me when I had to spend hours studying Chemistry.
Kaplsn got all the books and divided all the content into a 6 week period for review. I studied 2 subjects each day and rotated them so I was coming back to the same subject at regular intervals.
Things I never understood in my classes finally made sense as I studied. It was the bombay of the day! I also used Khan Academy as well, but very rarely.
Well, it was crap. I literally cried my whole way home while I was on the phone quicksgeet my husband and told him I was sure I would never get into med school.
I scored a I think this is equivalent to a today. So I used that to compare to my new score after all content review. I only increased by 2 points. I was pretty mad, and again, I cried. So I took my exams Friday mornings, then did content review the rest of the following week until it was time to take another exam again. Worth every penny and you should make room in your budget to do so. I took practice tests in the Quiet Room of the library where I literally spent my entire summer of so I could mimic real testing conditions.
I turned off my phone all the waygot scratch paper and pencil, and made it as close to the real deal as I could because I suffer from testing anxiety. Slowly, my scores started improving.
I was freaking out because I was having issues with timing, and that was and still is my biggest weakness.
So strategizing timing and figuring out what questions were worth marking and coming back to was the tricky part. Eventually on my last exam practice I scored a I took the day off on Friday and I got a manicure, pedicure, and massage. I hung out with my husband and kids and tried not to think about the next day which, who am I kidding?! I was freaking out. I also called the testing center and they allowed me to come in and tour it so I would be familiar with the environment before walking in the next day, and it also allowed me to time my driving so I knew how long it would take for me to get there the next morning.
I showered, made myself a healthy, balanced breakfast while I studied the Kaplan Quicksheets the only thing I felt Kaplan did a great job at for quick references and equation refreshers.
Tips for how I survived the MCAT… and how you will too. –
I got to the testing center 45 minutes before it started so I had enough time to get fingerprinted and all that good stuff. The exam itself was hard. I panicked the first 20 minutes of the first section, so I was surprised when I scored a 9 on it because that was the highest I ever scored on the Physical Sciences.
The rest of the test was smooth sailing just like I had practiced. I chose to take the trial for the new MCAT and got asked a bunch of questions on stuff I had never learned, so that was a lot of fun to just look at the screen like I was reading Chinese. I walked out of there about 5 hours after the exam began. I thought I had tanked it. It was the worst feeling ever. I cried my whole way home again.
I scored a 26 just like my practice test, which turned out to be 50th percentile in my test day group. I chose to let kaplah go through to my AACOMAS primary apps that were already waiting and shortly after that I started receiving invitations for secondary applications.
My whole MCAT experience.
Tips for how I survived the MCAT… and how you will too.
I do have to add that I prayed a LOT before the exam and after. I believe God helps us when we sincerely ask for help and I believe prayer works. It is my hope I can inspire those pursuing careers in healthcare to be the example to the people around them!
