About Princeton Review MCAT

According to Princeton Review, the two biggest reasons why students struggle with the MCAT are lack of time to study along with too much information to memorize. Therefore, the company’s main philosophy when it comes to the MCAT is to help students achieve maximum results while also prioritizing efficient use of time. Princeton Review has created its curriculum to place an emphasis on thorough understanding of the material that the MCAT tests, as opposed to mindless memorization.
