Topics for Sections

Post by ragtaguzoo » Sat May 23, 2020 2:12 pm

I just wanted to know maybe you can give me a list of topics which are high yield or a high likelihood to appear on the mcat for the different sections? I just don't want to get bogged down on low yield topics. I don't want to spend so much time figuring out something that has a low chance on coming on the MCAT. Thanks.

Everything that is covered in the main course is pretty high-yield. Things that are core to understanding anything and guaranteed to show up are particularly emphasized (some biochemistry, glycolysis, the AAs, etc.).

Beyond that, the crux of the matter is this: Your actual MCAT won't represent the things you studied exclusively, no matter what you do. You can only build strong foundations in every topic and hope to be tested largely on things you're good at. The scope of each section of the MCAT is simply larger than the 59 questions per section could ever capture.

All that said, there is virtually no chaff in the video series. I know this can feel a little overwhelming, but at least you don't have to spend considerable energy strategizing. As usual, I do recommend this (the miledown *.pdf) for a sort of visual overview: ... 6Pat1tbDgj
