MCAT Flashcards

There is a lot of learning to do for the MCAT, especially in the physical sciences and biological sciences section. With so much to learn and remember one can tend to forget some important concepts or facts. So, while in the preparation stage, one should think of effective ways to remember what one is studying. Various retention methods are writing down as one study, associating difficult concepts to something one can remember etc. Another popular way of remembering is by making use of flashcards. Flashcards are small pieces of cardboard or paper, each of which has a fact or concept written on them. Flashcards have always been a good way of studying and remembering what one has studied.

If you have a lot of time to prepare for the MCAT (About 6-9 months), then you can make your own flashcards and use them for preparation. But if you’ve decided to start preparing just 3 months or so before the exam, you wouldn’t want to waste time on preparing these. Instead you can buy them. Available in the market are The Gold Standard new MCAT CBT Deck of Flashcards, priced nominally so every student can afford them. These were prepared by Dr. Brett Ferdinand MD and are in the form of a deck of poker cards. Handy and colorful, these cover all the topics in the sciences sections of the MCAT.

The flashcards do not help you to merely memorize but remember the facts properly.
