All you need is 4 things to get the best results: Time and Motivation, solid review books, and realistic tests.
Time and Motivation
How much time do you need? Pretty easy. First get your review and tests together and start working. Reassess your results after one week. Because there is only a limited amount of review and tests (good ones at least), you'll know after one week how much more time you'll need to complete your review. On average: 3 to 6 months. If you are taking the test in April then start earlier because you will likely have less daily study time because of other tests.
There are 3 tests in the Gold Standard and 1 in Kaplan's book. By far, the best source for practice MCAT
tests are the online tests at AAMC.org which are the official past exams.
Get them all! The official AAMC tests also come in paper format which
you can get in the online auction at quite a savings. It is very important
to take all AAMC practice MCATs, check your test scores then review
your mistakes before trying another practice test. The AAMC also has a new guide book with questions, answers and explanations using real past test sections. In all, it is the equivalent of having one full length test which you should definitely own: The Official AAMC Guide.
When it comes to testing yourself keep the following in mind: "If you are going to play in the Superbowl, then practice on a football field!" Alot of students make the mistake of doing dozens of old practice paper tests only to have a less than ideal performance on the the computer based test (CBT). You can avoid this mistake if you focus your test preparation using ALL the online AAMC practice tests and the 10 Gold Standard CBTs: MCAT Practice tests. It's true that the AAMC's
more recent practice tests (after test #6) are relatively more realistic than their earlier ones but they are ALL helpful as teaching tools. In all, along with the Official AAMC Guide, you will have nearly 20 full length practice tests.
