- The books may be ordered as individual sets. The price for each of the

The price for the Psychology book is $49.00 For example, if you feel that

Computer-Based Tests (CBTs)
- The CBTs are sold as a set of three (1-3) exams or as a set of four
(1-4) exams. They may NOT be ordered individually.
- The price for
each set of three (1-3) CBTs is $110.00. The price for each set of four
(1-4) CBTs is $135.00. There are no shipping charges for the CBTs. Once
the CBTs are purchased, all sales are final. Refunds will not be issued.
- Electronic access will be set up for you once we have processed your order.
At the time of account activation, a user ID and a password for our CBTs will be
emailed to you. Besides checking your email inbox folder, also check your spam
folder for this information.
- Accounts expire exactly 40 days from the date of activation, or
after starting each unique exam 15 times, or until the CBT date
that you indicated on the Home Study Order Form, whichever comes first. An
activation date is determined by counting back 40 days from the day before
you are scheduled to take the MCAT. Exams are not activated earlier than 40
days out from your MCAT date.
Let's assume that you have a scheduled MCAT test date of Saturday,
August 20, 2016. (1) If you want to use our CBT exams for the full 40 days to
study right up to the day before the MCAT, then you can have the CBTs activated
on Monday, July 11, 2016. (2) As a second possibility, you might decide
that you do not want, need, or have time for the full 40 days of practice with
our CBTs. In that case, you might decide to have the CBTs activated on Monday,
August 1, 2016. In either case the exams are deactivated on Saturday,
August 20, 2016. The cost to you in both examples is the same.
At the present time the AAMC does not offer testing dates for the MCAT during the
autumn months of October, November, or December. During this period our online
CBTs will be down and not available until December 15th, when they open up
again for the January testing dates.
- IMPORTANT: The CBTs purchased for use in a given calendar year (e.g.,
2016) must be completed during that year and they must be completed by the exam
date you indicated on your Home Study Order Form. CBT accounts will not be
extended past the date you indicated on your Home Study Order Form. For example,
if you indicated that your real exam date is on Saturday, April 23, 2016, then
your practice CBTs will be deactivated on Saturday, April 23, 2016, whether the
practice CBTs are used or not used. Likewise, if you indicated that your real
exam date is on Saturday, September 10, 2016, then your practice CBTs will be
deactivated on Saturday, September 10, 2016, whether the practice CBTs are used
or not used.
IMPORTANT: Before you purchase our CBTs, please make sure that you have
completed the vast majority of your studying, that you have had sufficient
coursework in sociology, psychology, and biochemistry, and that you can take the
real exam on the date you indicated on the Home Study Order Form.
