After semesters of studying and weeks of preparation, it can be tempting to jump into taking the MCAT and get it over with. However, you put yourself at a real disadvantage if you take the exam cold without an idea of what level you are in your prep. Diagnostic tests are extremely valuable to MCAT students and can offer a keen insight into not just what you should be studying, but also how you should be studying.

Led by one of our course instructors, Phil Hawkins, this session provided an in-depth overview of diagnostic tests and how to use them to create or enhance your study plan. Hawkins scored in the 99th percentile on his own MCAT and has ten years of teaching and tutoring experience. As in all of our sessions, we encouraged student participation.
