- 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.
- 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)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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), one exam date in November (11/7), and one
exam date in December (12/6), along with the regular exam dates in January of
2015 (1/8, 1/10, 1/13, 1/15, and 1/23). 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 December of 2014. They cannot be extended into a new
year. Exams purchased for the January 2015 exam dates must be completed by
last exam date given in January of 2015.
- 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 7, 2014, then your practice
CBTs will be deactivated on November 7th, whether the practice CBTs are used or
not used. Likewise, if you indicated that your real exam date is on January 23,
2015, then your practice CBTs will be deactivated on January 23rd, 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.
- 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
- IMPORTANT: The practice CBTs that we have available support the
current version of the MCAT only. They will be good through January 23, 2015. The
current practice CBTs do NOT support the new MCAT that is to be first
administered in April of 2015. We will make practice CBTs available in late
February of 2015 that will mimic the new exam.
- 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.
