Memorizing amino acid structures giving you a headache? Having trouble remembering all those electrostatics equations? Improve your understanding of MCAT science content FASTER than with any other service.

How Hard is the MCAT?

In terms of mental effort, the MCAT Physical Sciences, Critical Analysis, and Verbal Reasoning questions really aren't that difficult. You're not calculating quantum mechanics or performing brain surgery; you're simply answering questions that tie together a variety of concepts from your mental knowledge bank.

The trick is figuring out how to most effectively build that mental knowledge bank in the first place. Especially considering the recent changes to the exam, being able to ace the MCAT requires knowing THOUSANDS of micro-science facts that you can quickly recall, and combine with other information, at any time. And that's why you need the world's most effective memory-building tool to drill that knowledge into your skull!

Score a 528 on the MCAT!

Stop wasting time highlighting workbooks or lugging around paper flash cards. Brainscape + NextSteps' MCAT app -- combined with other books and practice tests -- is guaranteed to get you one of the top scores.
