If you give me this app for free, I will right an absolutely amazing review!!!
Typos, things that don’t make sense. Some of the explanations are written in a condescending or pretentious way. Most of the time the questions have nothing to do with the passages. The freebie questions were good, then it was downhill from there. Not reflective of mcat prep at all. App issues too, sometimes the passages are just blank or takes a while load. If you’re studying for the mcat, do yourself a favor and just shell out for the official prep.
It was okay at first, but then I hit a question that made me just delete the app altogether. It gave a mnemonic device to remember the “8 essential amino acids” (theres 9) and gave a list of 10 (I know, right?) left me wondering how many other questions were blatantly wrong.
Pros: Relatively cheap, good explanations, good questions. Cons: Some of the questions (such as the organic chemistry synthesis questions) seem inappropriately challenging relative to other MCAT study sources. Additionally, Grammatical mistakes make some questions difficult to follow. These are rare, reminiscent of a foreigner who has been living here for twenty years. They are a strike against the professional "feel" of the product, however.
So good for review the material...
I'm preparing to take my MCAT this summer and this app has taken my studying to the next level. Instead of playing bejeweled or browsing twitter while I'm out in about, I use this app to keep myself fresh. The questions are a great balance of clinical application and content-based discrete questions, which really helps when I do my in-depth studying.
Not worth 30 dollars - the questions are not written like the actual exam and are very simple. Although they will help with review in general, it would be better to spend your money on review that is structured like the questions you will see on exam day
Although I have 2 years before I even have to take the MCAT, I can already tell this app has improved my ability to recognize patterns and has improved my study habits. Plus, the varying categories act as a great study tool for my current classes!
Endless, full coverage MCAT questions! Yay! This app helps you identify sections that you need to work on, and can easily add 20-60 minutes a day to your study routine. Just use this whenever you have the urge to Instagram! ;)
Perfect app to keep concepts and terminology fresh in your mind. It's especially great when you don't have your books/laptop on you and want to get some studying in.
