The MCAT is a test of more than just the facts about basic physical and biological sciences—it's an in-depth, rigorous examination of your knowledge of scientific concepts and principles, as well as your critical-thinking and writing skills. With the Princeton Review's subject-specific MCAT series, you can focus your review on the MCAT topics that are most challenging to you. Each book in the series contains the most in-depth coverage of subjects tested on the MCAT.

Each chapter in MCAT General Chemistry includes:
• Full-color illustrations, charts, and diagrams
• Examples of general chemistry questions and their solutions, worked out step by step
• Chapter Review Quizzes and answers
• A real, MCAT-style practice passage with questions and answers
• Bulleted chapter summaries for quick review

MCAT General Chemistry Review also includes:

• A complete glossary of general chemistry terms
• A general chemistry formula sheet

Unlike the other Princeton Review books, this one is a complete failure. The author seems to be an amateur who has no idea what he's doing. The other explanation is that he's concealing important information from the book to make you think you need to take an MCAT course with them. The questions are designed to ask you about information that has not been presented to you so do not be surprised if you don't get to answer them correctly. This is a horrible method of teaching. In addition, the book throws terms at you before introducing them. Chapter 7, for example, avoids discussing Ksp altogether but the end of chapter questions all revolve around the Ksp concept. It clearly uses a copy and paste mechanism in providing the questions and proves that the author has no idea what he's talking about or how to present the subject. My advice is to get the other Princeton Review books because they are very helpful. However, this book is a horrible choice for studying for the MCAT general chemistry section.
