MCAT serves as one of the key factors for admission into medical school. It is no wonder students spend thousands of dollars on the prep material and tutoring. However, there is a lot of material available free of charge that we found to be extremely helpful.
For those of us on a budget, this is a guide for cheap and free MCAT 2015 prep material you can find!
1. Content Review Material
There is a great deal of free content that can be found online.
A. Khan Academy videos: https://www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/mcat
Khan Academy videos are not too long and go over all of the topics required for MCAT2015. The company collaborated with AAMC to create their MCAT content. Even though the content has not been written by AAMC, we can rest assured that it is very relevant to the new test.
