How can PCAT Quantitative Ability tutoring help you?
If you're preparing to apply to pharmacy school, you will have to take the Pharmacy College Admission Test, or PCAT, and face its six imposing sections. The Quantitative Ability section can prove to be the most difficult for many students ' even those with strong math skills ' due to the breadth and depth of the content it features. After all, not many exams cover elementary-school concepts like fractions and percentages, calculus principles like derivatives and integrals, and a wide variety of material of intervening difficulty. In addition, questions on the PCAT Quantitative Ability section measures concepts at such a level of detail that simply being familiar with a topic or having once studied it is not enough to prepare you for success on the section.
