I too am retaking the MCAT in August. My April wasn't horrid, but not stellar either. 27S. So now I'm back reviewing every single thing - spending about 12 hours a day... fortunately I don't have any classes this summer otherwise this couldn't possibly work! But I figure I did average of 9 in April after only studying the one week of spring break - AND took it in the middle of midterms - yuck!

Major kudos for all of you retaking - we can do this!

I'm actually not retaking the MCAT this will be my first go around and hopefully I wont have to do it again.

I've been studying for about 2 hrs per day for 4 months solid. No excuses. I still have no idea what score I should shoot for as far as composites are concerned.

Oh! One last thing, I've been studying my old textbooks from my years in undergrad. (Bio, Chem, OChem, & Engineering Physics) Also, purchased 2 mcat prep books (kaplan & examkrackers) and TONS of flash cards and practice tests from the books and sites online.

Any other suggestions on other brush up material?

i've been a closet reader and decided that instead of just sitting here and reading the posts, that I should break out of my shell and share my thoughts (it'll probably be more of therapeutic that way... :wave: this is my 3rd time and hopefully it'll be my LAST :boggled:

i'm at that point, where all i can think about is studying for this exam.. i can't even focus on my work stuff because I'm so eager to get out of work so i can study :yes:

Hello, I m in the Aug MCAT boat too and I am also begining to freak out a little. I have been trying to study 2-3 hrs like 4-5 days a week since july, and my first practice was a 21. I am begining to feel overwhelmed with it all. I don't want to have to take the April, so I know I need to keep studying, but I tend to zone out when I study. I am so sick of all this stuff. I just want to score well and go on with life hhahaha don't we all.

Well good luck to all
