Free MCAT practice questions

March 28, 2013


The key to mastering the MCAT is preparation.  The best way to start and to continue to learn is taking MCAT practice tests and answering MCAT-like questions.

The AAMC (those that create the MCAT) provide a FREE AAMC e-MCAT practice test and plenty of pay for practice questions.  We recommend starting here first.

There are also many sites that provide free daily MCAT questions.  Here are 3 sites that have good questions.
