Overwhelmed by the sheer amount of MCAT content? Worried about missing details and never even knowing it? Cover the entire scope of MCAT science with Brainscape’s online and mobile flashcards. Curated by a 100th-percentile scorer in close alignment with the official MCAT outline, these flashcards will help you study the right material, faster. **Now with 1000+ brand-new cards!**
MCAT memorization - from amino acids to metabolism - can be a giant pain. Worse, it can be hard to discern what you even need to memorize. With Brainscape, you can improve your understanding of MCAT science content FASTER than with any other service. Better yet, you can do so in a way that’s carefully balanced to reflect what is (and isn’t!) likely to be tested.
You probably already know that the MCAT is a test of critical thinking. Passage reading, question interpretation, and figure analysis are just some of the skills that separate great scorers from the rest. However, the MCAT is also built on a foundation of thousands of science facts. Without this knowledge, you’ll never even have a fair shot at putting your reasoning skills to use.
As the world’s most effective memory-building tool, Brainscape is the perfect resource for building that science foundation. But our MCAT flashcards were designed to go beyond mere facts. Cards are packed with strategy tips and hints to help you draw connections between topics and subjects.
We all know that MCAT prep is time-consuming, inconvenient, and scary. But what if you could manage MCAT stress and get the same comprehensive MCAT content that you’d see in the best prep books - without having to lug those books around? What if the peace of mind of knowing you’re studying the right material, at the right depth, was something you could carry in your pocket?
Great news! With Brainscape’s MCAT flashcards, you can. Brainscape partnered with Clara Gillan, an 100th-percentile scorer with years of MCAT teaching and product development experience, to write and carefully organize over 4000 flashcards. This repository was created with the input of other top-scoring MCAT experts, years of data regarding the MCAT itself, and meticulous scrutiny of the AAMC outline and available materials. And we tested this app with a focus group of students who all scored more than a 500 on their subsequent practice exam.
These cards aren’t just amino acid abbreviations and definitions of psych terms (although we have that, too!). They get to the heart of what and how the MCAT tests, from multiple decks dedicated to experimental design (moderating variables, anyone?) to extensive drilling on lab-focused concepts, like SDS-PAGE and amino acid titrations.
Pairing Brainscape's adaptive learning platform with the detailed MCAT knowledge has helped thousands of students. Now we want to help YOU improve your score with the highest level of expertise available. After all, to ace the exam, you need a spaced repetition system that efficiently pinpoints the areas where you need content review most!
