Other sources

You’ll find a lot of free online BeMo MCAT resources such as blogs, videos, webinars, books, and guides on our website. These resources include the same advice, tips, and strategies we provide in our one-on-one consultations. The difference is that some students can easily apply these strategies to their own study habits and schedules, while others need a personalized approach.

Alternatively, if you have the budget for it, you can opt for a private MCAT tutor. Tutors offer subject specific, 1-on-1 coaching along with individual feedback and test-taking tips. This is a great choice for those who prefer face-to-face coaching, personalized guidance and customizable schedules. A tutor can give you a realistic interpretation of your performance in the practice tests and identify the most efficient way to improve your score.
