Ordering Within The Continental United States

Books

  1. The books may be ordered as individual sets. The price for each of the four science sets is $69.00. You may order the science books in sets, but not individually. The price for the Verbal Reasoning set is also $69.00. For example, if you feel that you want to review biology, then you can order just the two books in the Biology set for $69.00. Don't forget to add the appropriate shipping and handling.

  2. The price for all nine books ordered together is $330.00. You save $15.00 compared to what you would pay ordering the five sets individually. Don't forget to add the appropriate shipping and handling.

Computer-Based Tests (CBTs)

  1. The CBTs are sold either as a set of three (1-3) exams, five (1-5) exams, or seven (1-7) exams. They may NOT be ordered individually.

  2. The price for each set of three (1-3) CBTs is $110.00, five (1-5) CBTs cost $160.00, and seven (1-7) CBTs cost $210.00. There are no shipping charges for the CBTs.

  3. Electronic access will be set up for you once we have processed your order. At the time of account activation, a user ID, a password, and a scoring scale for our CBTs will be emailed to you. Besides checking your email inbox folder, also check your spam folder for this information.

  4. Accounts are good for exactly 45 days from the date of activation 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 45 days from the day before you are scheduled to take the MCAT. Exams are not activated earlier than 45 days out from your MCAT date.

    Let's assume that you have a scheduled MCAT test date of August 27th. (1) If you want to use our CBT exams for the full 45 days to study right up to the day before the MCAT, then you can have the CBTs activated on July 13th. (2) As a second possibility, you might decide that you do not want, need, or have time for the full 45 days of practice with our CBTs. In that case, you might decide to have the CBTs activated on August 1st and deactivated on August 27th. The cost to you in both examples is the same.

    NOTE: The AAMC has recently announced that they will be offering two exam dates in October (10/21 and 10/25) and one exam date in November (11/7). Our CBTs will be availabe for these exam dates. Exams purchased for the year 2014 must be completed by the last exam date given in November of 2014. They cannot be extended into a new year.

  5. IMPORTANT: The CBTs purchased for a given calendar year 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 November 7th, then your practice CBTs will be deactivated on November 7th, whether the practice CBTs are used or not used. Before you purchase our CBTs, please make sure that you have the vast majority of your studying complete and that you can take the real exam on the date you indicated on the Home Study Order Form.

  6. Access to our CBTs must be made from your own personal computer. When you log on to our exam site, you must have the cookies on your web browser activated, so that we can register your computer with our system. You will be allowed to use no more than two different computers. If we find out that someone other than you is accessing your account to take our CBTs, your account will be deactivated immediately.

  7. As with the sale of our Home Study textbooks, we do not offer tutorial support or explanations for text information or individual test items by telephone or email. Detailed solutions are provided for all passage questions in the textbooks and on the CBTs. We offer technical support only to help you gain access to your CBT account.

    3. We do not offer a 1-day or 2-day shipping service, because the shipping charges are exorbitant. Crude oil is curently above $70 per barrel, and it is driving the cost of transportation upward.
