Fortunately there are other prep options for you that are available right now online that are just as effective as live MCAT prep courses.
Online MCAT videos are being posted every day -- some great, some not-so-great. I dig around the internet often to search for new MCAT videos that are good enough to add to my collection of MCAT bookmarks for premeds.
I only save the very best videos -- the ones from reputable institutions that are recorded by skilled presenters who clarify difficult MCAT concepts without being dry and boring.
I've found free MCAT Videos from:
- Khan Academy
- Exam Fear
If you're looking for a free alternative or a supplement to expensive MCAT prep, check out my collection of MCAT videos I maintain at INQUARTA.com. After you watch the videos you'll be able to figure out whether a full investment in a live prep course is a smart idea for you or not.
