MCAT Public Office Hours – CARS Strategy Review

The webinar session was run by Clara Gillan, one of our lead instructors and content developers. Clara discussed strategies that will help students conquer this difficult section of the exam. Unlike the science sections of the MCAT, there is no foundation of content you can build. CARS is testing a skill, not knowledge, which makes it difficult to study and improve. In this session you will learn common strategies, what to focus on, and what to ask yourself. Clara took attendees through a practice passage and questions to demonstrate these strategies live. You can view the recording of this session below.

Unlike the lesson videos included in our class, the Office Hours sessions are not simply a lecture. These webinar sessions are intended to be interactive. Our Office Hours will be conducted by one of our senior MCAT experts and will focus on specific MCAT content, but students will have the ability to ask and answer questions on mic. If you have a question, you can simply type it into the chat box or click the “raise your hand” button and ask.

Our goal at Next Step is to make sure that you have the resources needed to prepare for the MCAT and your future career. This Public Office Hour session is a sampling of what our course students have access to on a regular basis. If you’re interested in our online MCAT course, click here. We also have several practice test bundles, including a free practice bundle, as well as one-on-one MCAT tutoring services. If you utilize our tutoring services or enroll in our course, you will receive customized plans that work at your pace and focus on the areas where you need to improve the most. What works for some may not work for all, so we are doing away with the cookie cutter approach and making sure that your study plan works for you.
