While the pre-2015 MCAT only tests you on science and verbal, you are still required to perform complex mathematical calculations WITHOUT A CALCULATOR!
Unfortunately, studying the sciences alone won't help you here as the math equations tend to trip up students in many ways:
- You may get stuck in knowing how to apply math to the required science question.
- Perhaps you know the required math but feel lost without your calculator.
- Even if you do know how to do the MCAT math without a calculator, you find yourself wasting too much precious time working through the calculations.
So as you prepare for your MCAT you should be focusing on learning the required math in addition to studying your sciences and practicing verbal passages.
The key to a successful math strategy involves:
- Learning how to do the required math without a calculator
- Learning the correct tricks and shortcuts to get through these questions QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY
