The Good

Customized courses for every student

Top Test Prep does not offer traditional group courses at all. Rather, as a Top Test Prep student, you’re paired with an expert tutor who evaluates your personal needs and creates a focused course plan designed to target just the content areas that you need help with. Unlike students in standard group courses, you don’t have to spend valuable class time covering concepts, skills, and test strategies that you’ve already mastered. By focusing in on the areas that challenge you personally, Top Test Prep provides a much more efficient study option. Three program options are available, including a 20-lesson plan, a 40-lesson plan, and a 100-lesson plan. If you live near a Top Test Prep location, the company’s MCAT prep program is well worth a look.

Personalized expert admissions services

While many other companies provide similar services, they are generally offered separately from test preparation services, and only at an additional cost. Top Test Prep’s 20-lesson plan includes a two-hour consultation with an admissions expert, which is enough time to conduct a complete review of your medical school application. The 40-lesson plan includes five hours of time with an admissions expert and the 100-lesson plan provides 15 hours. These hours can be used according to your personal needs. For example, you can use the time to get help editing and improving your medical school application or to work on your admissions interview skills, among other possible options.

Unlimited full-length practice tests

By taking a number of practice tests in the months and weeks before your test date, you’re able to get a good feel for the test content and get accustomed to the mental and physical stress that comes along with a lengthy, proctored test. While many of the best MCAT test prep companies offer a good number of free practice tests, Top Test Prep goes further by essentially offering unlimited practice test opportunities. Practice tests are built from a vast question bank, ensuring you get all the practice you need to feel confident when your test date finally arrives.

The Bad

Lacks online study options

Top Test Prep does not offer any of its MCAT test prep services online, so you must live in or near one of their service areas to take advantage of their one-on-one tutored courses. Top Test Prep instructors conduct courses in your home or another agreed location. The company has trained instructors and admissions experts in cities in 14 different states, from Washington and California in the west all the way to Massachusetts and Georgia in the east.
