The Good

Comprehensive selection of on-site courses

Examkrackers offers three MCAT prep courses to meet the needs of virtually any student. The Examkrackers MCAT Comprehensive Course offers you nine weeks of intensive study that covers all aspects of the MCAT test. As a student in the MCAT Comprehensive Course, you attend four two-hour class sessions each week and take the equivalent of eight full-length proctored MCAT practice tests. If you feel like you need even more preparation than the standard course provides, consider the Examkrackers MCAT Extra Course. In this course, you start with nine three-hour instructional sessions designed to build your understanding of MCAT content from the ground up. After completing the nine sessions, you transfer immediately into a standard Examkrackers MCAT Comprehensive Course for nine additional weeks of intensive MCAT training. Finally, if you want to focus in on the verbal reasoning section of the MCAT, which is generally known as the most difficult section of the test, consider the six-week Examkrackers Verbal Reasoning Intensive Course.

Thousands of practice questions and eight practice tests

Access to quality practice materials should be a key consideration in your search for the right MCAT prep course. Examkrackers performs very well in this category, providing every MCAT Comprehensive Course student with nearly 3,300 sample MCAT questions organized according to test section and question type. Additionally, MCAT Comprehensive Course students take eight MCAT practice tests under simulated testing conditions. If you don’t feel like this is enough practice, Examkrackers offers several optional workbooks that bring the total number of sample questions available to nearly 8,000, which should be more than enough for even the most hard-working students.

Excellent course study materials

As an Examkrackers MCAT Comprehensive Course student, you receive five standard course texts that include more than 1,000 pages of explanation and practice exercises covering biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and verbal reasoning. These texts are provided free along with your course. If you take the Verbal Reasoning Intensive Course, you only receive the standard Examkrackers verbal reasoning text and an additional book of practice exercises.

The Bad

No online course options available

If you don’t live near an Examkrackers classroom location, you’re going to have to look at other MCAT prep companies to fulfill your needs. On-site courses are conducted in cities in 24 states across the country, from California in the west to Massachusetts in the east and many states in between. Visit the Examkrackers website and access the company’s MCAT Course Finder tool to find classroom locations and class schedules in your area.

No formal tutoring services

As an Examkrackers student, you get regular in-person instruction from an expert instructor throughout the length of your course. However, the company does not formally offer any one-on-one tutored courses or hourly tutoring services to students. Instead, you have to rely solely on in-class access to get your questions answered and to get help overcoming personal study challenges. This is a little surprising given the ubiquity of one-on-one tutoring services among test prep companies generally. That said, if you don’t need tutoring, this isn’t likely to count as a significant omission.
