"This book was very helpful in understanding the ins and outs of the MCAT. It gives a lot more insight and advice than quick Google searches. It is definitely a must-read for pre-med students (both trad and non-trad)!

If you're looking for other helpful pre-med books, Dr. Gray's other book in the series (The Premed Playbook Guide to the Medical School Interview) is also definitely worth checking out."
