What information does Sacramento MCAT prep help me review?

There are four sections to the MCAT covering many aspects of a career in medicine. You'll receive a separate score on each section between 118 and 132, which combine for a total score of 472 to 528. Sometimes experimental questions are included in sections that won't count towards your total score. Since you won't know which questions these are, it's important to do your best on all questions.

The section on Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems contains 59 questions and allows you 95 minutes to complete them. The subjects tested are general, organic, and inorganic chemistry and introductory physics, biology, and biochemistry. This section focuses on the functions of human bodies and the basic chemical and physical principles that underlie the operation of the human body. You should have a solid understanding of how the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of tissues, organs, and organ systems relate to the general laws of physics, as well as how chemical reactions work within the body. This is also where you will be tested on your knowledge of the Periodic Table of Elements.

There are 53 questions that you must answer in 90 minutes in the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section. These make use of a large variety of social sciences and the humanities. However, you don't need to know these areas; it's more your English skills that are tested using passages in these sections. The focus is on your reading comprehension, verbal reasoning, and analytical skills. You should be able to understand the components of the text you read and how to integrate them to increase your comprehension. Your abilities to extrapolate ideas from the passages to apply them to new contexts and situations will be assessed, as well as your aptitude in assessing the effects of introducing new information to the passage.

The Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems section consists of 59 questions and has a time limit of 95 minutes. Specific subjects tested are general and organic chemistry, introductory biology, and basic biochemistry. You'll be evaluated on how well you understand processes that are unique to living organisms, the foundational concepts of biology and biochemistry, scientific inquiry, and your reasoning competence. It's essential you know how cells and organ systems within a living organism both act independently and work together to accomplish necessary processes for life. Processes include growing, reproducing, and making environmental adaptations when necessary.

You'll have 95 minutes to answer the 59 questions in the Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior section. Your proficiency in biology and introductory psychology and sociology will be applicable to these questions. You have the opportunity to showcase your level of familiarity with serving an increasingly diverse population, how behavior can impact health, and mental health issues. A few things you must know or comprehend to be successful in this section include behavior and changes in behavior, cultural and social differences and how they can influence wellbeing, relationships regarding social stratification, and access to resources beyond direct healthcare.

This is a brief overview of the content that you can go into depth reviewing in your Sacramento MCAT prep class or with your Sacramento MCAT tutor. Either way, you're working with an expert on the MCAT who knows the content and has the communication skills to help you understand not only the material but how it needs to be applied on the actual exam.

What are the advantages of each type of Sacramento MCAT prep?

There's not one best solution for everyone when it comes to MCAT prep, which is why Varsity Tutors provides options. First, there is the Sacramento MCAT prep course, which you attend live online. The classes are offered in either two- or four-week sections, and there are various sections running concurrently at different times of the day. It should be easy to fit into your schedule, plus new courses begin each week, so no need to wait. You have classmates who are able to provide tips and ideas, and who you can bounce your ideas off of.

One strong benefit to this type of study is the level to which your tutor can customize each study session. If you're doing really well in some areas and finding other areas especially challenging, your MCAT tutor can adjust your study schedule accordingly.
