What’s the best MCAT prep course—Princeton Review, Kaplan, Altius, Examkrackers, Berkeley Review…???
Tough question, since it depends quite a bit on various personal preferences. With so many MCAT prep course options, you’ll have to narrow down your choices by deciding what’s most important to you: in-class instruction, one-on-one tutor time, price, length of the program, etc. Also bear in mind that Kaplan and Princeton Review MCAT test prep centers are much easier to find, while many of the others are only offered in specific regions. Even so, it’s pretty standard that these companies make it really difficult for pre-meds to find the actual costs of their programs before you give them your email so they can spam you eternally. So, for your benefit, we’ve written basic, as-unbiased-as-possible reviews of each program we have experience with or have found reviews of on the interwebs.
Without further adieu…
