Here's What We'll Cover

This session will familiarize you with the MCAT and show you how to maximize your preparation. This session also introduces the skills and strategies needed to answer Skill 1 (Scientific Knowledge) questions. You will work through Chem/Phys questions to better understand the scope and level of content familiarity necessary to succeed on the MCAT. You will also explore the high-yield topics of fluids and nucleophilic acyl substitution from physics and organic chemistry, respectively.

This session focuses on the Kaplan strategies for science passages and questions. You will learn the passage strategy while working though passages from each of the science sections on the MCAT. You will discuss the question strategy while answering biology and biochemistry questions. The session also includes an in-depth discussion of enzyme kinetics—a frequently tested topic.

This session focuses on the Kaplan strategy for CARS passages. You will work through exercises to help you learn to read CARS passages effectively. You'll also work through practice passages to reinforce the lessons.

In this class you will deconstruct experiment-based passages identifying key components that are frequently tested on the MCAT. You will work through passages with a focus on evaluating the appropriateness of experimental designs and the research questions they aim to answer. You will also take a deep dive into the psychology and sociology topics of attribution theory and associative learning.

This session will explore the content and strategies needed to answer Skill 2 (Scientific Reasoning) questions. You will work through a selection of Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem passages and discuss how scientific observations can be used to predict and explain scientific phenomena—a crucial skill for Skill 2 questions.You will also cover high-yield science lessons on gases and solution equilibria.

This session will introduce the skills and strategies needed to effectively answer Skill 4 (Data Analysis) questions. You will work through numerous passage excerpts and questions and learn to deconstruct the various presentations of data (graphs, tables, etc.) to form valid conclusions—and thus identify the correct answers to Skill 4 questions. You will also cover several high-yield behavioral science topics.

This session will focus on the three types of CARS questions. You take a deep dive into each family of questions: Foundations of Comprehension (FoC) questions, Reasoning Within the Text (RWT), and Reasoning Beyond the Text (RBT). You will work through passages and questions to learn the patterns and strategies needed to answer every type of CARS question.

In this session you will work through Bio/Biochem and Chem/Phys passages, learning how to spot highly-testable passage information. You'll also explore how the MCAT can present familiar content in novel ways. You will work through a curated set of questions from biology, biochemistry, general chemistry, and organic chemistry to demonstrate how the same concepts can be presented—and therefore applied—across multiple sections of the MCAT. This session will leave you will the tools needed to identify and fix any content gaps that you may encounter in your MCAT preparation. You will also take a deep dive into amino acid electrophoresis.

This session will explore the math needed on the MCAT. As such, you will work through a curated set of questions to familiarize yourself with the range of math skills needed to succeed the MCAT. You will then apply this learning to a Chem/Phys passage. This session will also illustrate the strategy-remediation process. You will tackle several difficult Chem/Phys passages learning how to identify the source of mistakes. You'll leave with a process for turning mistakes in practice into points on Test Day. This class also includes lessons on the high-yield topics of acid/base chemistry and electrochemical cells.

In this session you will work through experiment-based passages and explore the limitations of scientific data as you learn about experimental error and uncertainty. You will also explore complex experimental setups and determine valid conclusions that can be drawn from the results of these experiments. The session also covers the science topics of transcription, translation, and metabolism.

This session delivers advanced CARS strategies designed to maximize your score on Test Day. You'll get practice identifying CARS question types, you'll look at the common wrong answer types, and get guidance on Kaplan's section-level strategy.

The session provides guided practice to help refine your approach to CARS questions, passages, and the section as a whole.

This class focuses on the consolidation of strategy. You'll work though numerous Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem passages practicing the strategies and identifying areas of opportunity. You'll explore the topic of homeostasis and discuss how to best use your time before Test Day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Kaplan has returned to offering in person MCAT prep classes, featuring 12 three-hour classes with an expert MCAT instructor right there in the classroom with you, and personalized homework assignments. You will also have access to thousands of practice questions, 16 full-length, realistic MCAT practice tests, and much more. If you prefer learning with others on a routine schedule, our in-person MCAT classes may be the best MCAT prep option for you.

You can study for the MCAT by yourself, and if that is your preferred prep style, you can get started with Kaplan’s Free MCAT Resources, MCAT Practice Prep, or our On Demand MCAT Course. However, if you prefer to learn with an expert MCAT teacher, then our Live Online Course may be a better fit for you. And better yet, our In-Person MCAT Courses are now available again. For many, being in a hands-on classroom environment with an instructor in the room is the best way to prepare for the MCAT.

Across all of Kaplan’s MCAT Practice and MCAT Course prep options, there are many different price points to choose from. While everyone’s MCAT prep needs are different, these price points reflect varying levels of features, one-on-one attention, and time commitment. Choose the MCAT resources that best suit your skill sets, preferences, and schedule.

MCAT prep courses are the best way to ensure that you will be best prepared for all of the material that may be tested on the MCAT. If you are having trouble determining if an MCAT prep course would be worth it for you, we recommend trying our free MCAT Pop Quiz, 20-Minute Workout, or Practice Test to determine where you stand now, and how much prep you need to be able to meet your MCAT score goal.

Kaplan’s Live Online MCAT Course consists of live lessons 6 nights a week, and our On Demand Courses include over 90 hours of recorded lessons. Our In Person MCAT Course option consists of 12 three-hour classes with an expert MCAT teacher.

The average amount of time pre-med students spend studying for the MCAT is 240 hours across 4 months. Of course, this can vary person-to-person, so there’s no one number that is right for everybody preparing for the MCAT. By spreading your MCAT studies across 6 months, you will give yourself the best chance of meeting your MCAT score goal. If you are going to spend less time preparing for the MCAT, like 3 months, while you can prepare sufficiently in that time, your prep schedule will likely be more demanding than if extended over more time. The same can be said if you are studying across just 1 month or 2 months, although at that point, you may be spreading yourself quite thin.

You will take the MCAT at an AAMC testing center. People often wait to take the MCAT in order to take the test at the most convenient testing center. However, if there is another test center that you can get to, it is recommended to take the MCAT as soon as possible, and as soon as you are ready.
