Students preparing to take the Medical College Admission Test will value this set of flash cards as they brush up on questions typical of those that appear on the actual MCAT. The cards--with questions or concepts on the front and answers or concept explanations on the reverse sides--are divided into four sections: General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. Cards measure 4 1/2" by 2 3/4", and have a hole in one corner to accommodate a metal key-ring-style card holder that is included with the cards. The ring allows students to arrange the flash cards for study sessions in any sequence that suits their needs. These flash cards make excellent study aids when used alone, but are even more effective when used in tandem with Barron's MCAT test preparation manual.

Beginning in January’07, students applying for admission to medical schools must take the computer-based MCAT. The pencil-and-paper version of the Medical College Admission Test will no longer be given. Barron’s new eleventh edition of the MCAT manual prepares applicants with four full-length practice tests modeled after the brand-new computer-based tests. Each practice MCAT consists of 144 questions—the same number to be found on the new MCAT—with all questions answered and explained. Every test question in the manual closely reflects those on the computer-based test in length and degree of difficulty. Also presented are subject reviews that cover all test topics. They include: A detailed MCAT science review in biology, chemistry, and physics A math review Verbal reasoning test-taking strategies Advice on answering the MCAT writing sample Test takers will also value this book’s handy reference tables, which include logarithms and exponents, a table of common logarithms, the periodic table of the elements, a list of the elements with their symbols, and a chemistry reference table.

The fee for this book also enrolls you in our full STEPS to the LSAT test preparation system, described below. The book contains the study manual for the STEPS program, along with a Proctor's Manual for creating live prep classes in your area, and our booklet How to Get Accepted to Law School - A Take-Charge Approach. STEPS to the LSAT is a companion program to the Barron's LSAT Prep Book. It is designed to support students who are preparing for the LSAT on their own, as well as students who are taking an LSAT course. STEPS provides highly advanced strategies and insights developed by Jay Cutts over 24 years of private LSAT coaching. The fee for the STEPS to the LSAT book completely covers access to the full STEPS to the LSAT test prep program. After purchasing the book, you can register online at no additional charge for access to all of the other features in the STEPS program. These include: * A Buddy System (mutual, peer support with another student) * LSAT Solution of the Week - A full explanation of how to apply the Barron's strategies to a specific, actual LSAT question * A library of in-depth explanations of actual LSATs by Jay Cutts. Includes over 300 coaching sessions between Jay Cutts and an actual LSAT student and uncovers many of the reasons why students get questions wrong. * An online Dashboard - Students can record their progress, chat with other students, organize their work on LSAT questions, and ask for or give help. * For students who may need live tutoring, we offer referrals to high quality tutoring services. STEPS is guided by a national advisory board including current and past prelaw advisors and law professors. Our mission is to make high quality LSAT prep available at an affordable cost to all students, including those from underrepresented populations. The strategies included in the STEPS program are those that we have found from experience are most helpful for students who may be struggling with the test, for example peer support and a highly specific study plan. The fee for the STEPS to the LSAT book fully covers enrollment in the STEPS to the LSAT program. STEPS students must also purchase the Barron's LSAT Prep Book and will most likely need to buy some of the actual LSAT exams from Law Services. The fee for STEPS does not include any tutoring or coaching with a live person, including by phone, chat, or email. The LSAT is built on specific patterns. The STEPS program teaches these patterns, along with the strategies for dealing with them. The beginning student often finds that there are two answers to a question that seem indistinguishable. In fact, one answer contains a fatal flaw. One of the most important strategies for the LSAT is learning to find that flaw. Timing strategy is critical for a strong score. Completing all the questions in the allotted time is usually NOT the way to get the most points. STEPS teaches and reviews the most effective timing strategy. STEPS includes all of the unique, advanced strategies developed by Jay Cutts over 24 years. An independent, professional Reading Comp specialist described our approach to the RC section as "the most effective approach I've ever read. My score improved after reading it." If/then logic is typically a stumbling block for many students. STEPS teaches an extremely simple three step approach for clearly understanding any if/then argument. The STEPS teaches a highly systematic approach Analytical Reasoning (Games), as most students, when stumped, "stab in the dark." The STEPS approach condenses systematic logical problem-solving into a simple two-pronged strategy. The Logical Reasoning is the heart of the LSAT, comprising two sections. The key to LR is a logical problem-solving tool called the Adversarial Approach, which teaches students how to uncover the strengths and weaknesses of each answer choice quickly and accurately.
