Just over two weeks into studying for the MCAT and I’m just a bit more than a week behind. Part of that is because I was on the road for 7 days and got almost nothing done at all while I was gone. The other part of it is that reviewing these passages from the Berkeley Review takes forever. Half the time, the passage asks about material that isn’t in the passage or the content review and is well beyond the scope of anything that’s presented in freshman biology. When I read the solutions, it will simply rattle off a fact that I have to look up in a physiology or biochemistry textbook. I worked about 9 passages from the BR on Friday and it took me almost 8 hours to review them yesterday. Seriously – did I just not get the memo that biochemistry, genetics, and cell bio were covered by this exam?
I have no idea what the hell I’m doing wrong – I’m a week behind after only two weeks. I did a passage this afternoon on nicotinamide and vitamin B12 and missed every single problem. Did I take the wrong biology class last year?
