I've already read about the test in detail on the AAMC website, and I've also done some preliminary research on tips/preparation information on the web. Does anyone here have any experience with the test? Any suggestions on preparation materials (I've heard good things about two companies: The Princeton Review, and ExamKrackers)? Also, there is the April 26th and the August 16th test dates. The former date is around midterm time during my spring term, by which date I will have already completed my biology, organic chemistry, physics, and calculus sequences. The latter would be about a month and a half before my senior year starts. Is there an advantage to taking the earlier MCAT as opposed to the later one? Any other stories about the test, format, personal experiences? I'm curious and anxious about taking it; seeing as how most American medical schools weight it evenly with your GPA during the admissions process (Canadian schools don't give it as much weight).
