What Is the Best MCAT Prep Course?

The answer might seem obvious, right? The best MCAT prep course is the course that gets you your desired MCAT score! But how to choose the right one?

In my experience, no two students are the same. Every student I work with has a unique learning style and needs. This is why a one-on-one MCAT prep course might be the best option for you if you are looking to improve your MCAT score. The personalized feedback and attention to your needs you receive in these sessions can greatly improve your MCAT skills, whether it’s your MCAT CARS strategyMCAT timing, or knowledge of the MCAT content. 

However, before you jump into signing up for a course, read testimonials and experiences by other students to see what kind of MCAT prep course would work best for your learning style. The MCAT prep course stories below will help you weigh all the pros and cons of learning in our course, so you can make a sound decision that is right for you.

Nikita’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: From 507 to 523 on My MCAT

As someone who was consistently scoring around 507, I found my MCAT prep challenging until I met Dr. Narusis through BeMo. His approach to tutoring was transformational, focusing not just on rote memorization but on understanding the underlying logic of the MCAT questions. This deeper insight, coupled with practical test-taking strategies, allowed me to excel and achieve a score of 523, far beyond my initial expectations.

Kamilla’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: From 505 to 520 on my MCAT

My experience with BeMo's MCAT prep course was beyond educational—it was game-changing. My tutor, Simon Marmura Brown, not only clarified complex topics but also taught me how to analyze my own learning and adjust my strategies effectively. Starting with a baseline score of 505, his patient and insightful tutoring helped elevate my understanding and practice scores, achieving a 520 on my final practice tests. His support didn’t just prepare me for the MCAT; it gave me a robust foundation for medical school.

Julie’s MCAT Prep Journey: From 505 to 521 on My MCAT

My MCAT prep began with anxiety and a low practice MCAT score of 505. When I found BeMo’s MCAT prep course, BeMo expert Dr. Narusis tailored our sessions to focus on my weak points, particularly MCAT CARS and psychological/social sections. His methodical approach and encouragement helped me understand the core principles and apply them effectively. By the end of our sessions, my confidence soared, and I scored a 521 on the MCAT. This experience not only improved my test scores but also transformed how I approached learning in stressful situations.

Erica’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: From 506 to 520 on My MCAT

Before BeMo, I felt overwhelmed by the breadth of the MCAT content, stuck at a practice score of 506. Working with Megan, my tutor, changed my outlook. She provided not only academic support but also motivational advice that helped me manage stress and study more effectively. Her tips on time management and critical analysis led to a significant score improvement to 520 on the actual exam, renewing my enthusiasm and confidence in pursuing a medical career.

Anna’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: From 504 to 519 on MY MCAT

His supportive nature and strategic guidance helped me increase my score to 519, a testament to the effectiveness of personalized tutoring and persistent effort.

Michael’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: From 500 to 518 on My MCAT

When I started with BeMo, my MCAT prep was scattered, and my initial score was 500. Working with Elissar, my tutor, we developed a structured MCAT study plan focusing on MCAT high-yield topics and test-taking strategies. Elissar’s patience and insightful feedback during our intensive review sessions helped me grasp complex concepts and apply them under timed conditions. This strategic overhaul was crucial, lifting my MCAT score to 518, which felt like a true reflection of my potential.

Sarah’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: Fom 502 to 517 on My MCAT

My first MCAT attempt was a wake-up call. Scoring a 501 was demoralizing, but BeMo’s MCAT prep course, particularly the sessions with Hanlin Liu on chemistry, really made me believe I can and will do better. Hanlin personalized my study plan, emphasizing active learning and critical analysis, which were game-changers for me. His mentorship helped elevate my understanding and application of the material, resulting in a final score of 517. This journey not only prepared me for the MCAT but also instilled a deeper appreciation and understanding of the subjects that I will need to know as a future physician.

Howard’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: From 489 to 512 on my MCAT

When I first approached BeMo, I was overwhelmed by the MCAT preparation. My initial practice scores were disheartening, barely reaching 498. Through BeMo's focused sessions, especially with Simon who helped clarify my doubts and misconceptions about test strategies and content, I gradually saw improvement. Our sessions revolved around understanding complex scientific concepts and applying them practically, which significantly boosted my scores. By the end of my prep, I achieved a 512 on my MCAT, a score I initially thought was out of reach.

Abby’s MCAT Prep Course Journey: From 500 to 510 on my MCAT

My MCAT prep course experience with BeMo was transformative. My MCAT tutor Rene focused my efforts on critical reasoning skills, which were my weakest, and helped improve my practice test scores from the initial 500 to a confident 510. She not only personalized my study plan according to my life’s schedule but also enriched it with strategic insights that were crucial for tackling the MCAT effectively. BeMo’s MCAT prep course made a daunting journey much more manageable and led to a confident MCAT day.

A Word of Advice from Our MCAT Experts

Will the MCAT determine your worth as a physician? No, not really. As our expert Dr. Monica Taneja, MD, says:

“MCAT and GPA are important as screening tools. But, they won’t be the end all for you to get in or be rejected from a school” – Dr. Monica Taneja, MD

We at BeMo don’t necessarily think that the MCAT is the best way to evaluate your potential. We believe that students have unique traits to offer that cannot be quantified by numbers and that your experiences and abilities are not limited to such tests. For example, one of our students, Allison, who applied to medical schools in Texas and got into the Dell Medical School said that her new hobby – woodworking – got brought up in all her medical school interviews, unlike her MCAT score or her GPA. She notes that sometimes “it’s the thing you find weirdest about yourself” or the “things that make you different” are ultimately what are going to “make you stand out the most.”

However, because the MCAT is commonly required for admission to medical school, it is still important to score well on this test. To score well on the MCAT, you’ll need the proper tools. This is the point of our MCAT prep course, to provide you with the strategies and knowledge of how to ace this test so you can have a better shot of getting accepted to the medical school of your choice.

If i struggled in particular pre-req or two –– would you recommend retaking these courses first before beginning to study for the MCAT?

BeMo Academic Consulting

Hi Juan Carlos! Thank you very much for your question. If you are going to retake a course, you must also restructure your study strategies. Simply retaking a class using the same learning habits might not result in better learning and understanding, or a better grade. The key to successful MCAT prep is developing the right strategies and tactics that allow you to maximize your learning, critical thinking skills, and knowledge of MCAT content. Retaking a class might help, but you must work on your personal study habits to increase comprehension and knowledge of content. I hope this helps your decision. If you have any more questions, let us know!
