Which subjects could a Detroit MCAT course help me to review?
The MCAT is broken down into four parts, which you can learn more about when you enroll in a Detroit MCAT course: Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems, Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems, Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills, and Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior. You will have 6 hours and 15 minutes to finish the exam, but you'll spend around 7 and a half hours at the test facility on the day of the exam. When preparing for the test, you will want to practice efficiency and accuracy to ensure you are using your time wisely.
When you take the Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems section, you will be asked 59 questions, including questions based on 10 excerpts as well as 15 independent questions. You will be given 95 minutes to complete this part of the exam. The topics in this section will focus on fundamental topics in biology and biochemistry, as well as general chemistry and organic chemistry. You'll want to gain a solid understanding for this section of how cells and organ systems work together and apart in the living systems.
Next, in the Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems section, you will be allotted 95 minutes to respond to 59 questions, which are broken down into 10 excerpt-based question sets and 15 individual questions. These questions pertain to the ways in which organ systems, chemical, and physical elements of living systems work. For this section, you'll want to review how mechanical, physical, and biochemical mechanisms occur in the body.
During the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section, you will be asked 53 questions divided into 9 question sets. These questions will be based on social sciences and humanities excerpts. You will have a total of 90 minutes to finish this part of the exam. These questions will assess your ability to understand texts, analyze specific passages, and practice verbal reasoning. It will also test your understanding of the English language. Before taking this part of the test, you'll want to strengthen your skills at extrapolating key aspects of passages, applying new information to excerpts, and inferring meaning from excerpts.
Last, you will take a Physical, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior section. You will be given 95 minutes to finish this part of the exam, which involves 59 questions. These questions will be based on 10 excerpts as well as 15 independent questions. This part of the exam will test your skills in sociology, biology, and introductory psychology. Before taking this part of the test, you'll want to review topics such as human behavior, the ways in which varying cultural and social contexts affect health, the ways in which psychology and social factors affect mental health, and the ways in which access to resources affects overall wellness.
