Odyssey: MCAT Test Prep

The course was developed in close consultation with the Pre-Professional Advising Office at Johns Hopkins. It offers an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to the MCAT, using materials created by veteran instructors, the AAMC, and Examkrackers.

The course is directed by Thomas Crain, senior lecturer at the Carey Business School who has directed MCAT courses for the Odyssey program for over a decade. Additional instructors include Richard Shingles, professor of biology at Johns Hopkins; Allison Tracy, professor of chemistry at University of Maryland, Baltimore County; Barbara Smith, former professor of psychology at both Johns Hopkins and Goucher College, and author of the book The Psychology of Sex and Gender; and Jeffrey Bowen, professor of physics and astronomy emeritus, at Bucknell University.

The course will provide thorough familiarity with the MCAT and its objectives; test-taking strategies and tips geared toward this 7.5-hour exam; ample practice with sample problem sets and comprehension passages, including the opportunity to take the official AAMC practice test in a computer lab environment; application of the tools of scientific research and verbal reasoning; an explanation and application of the MCAT's 10 foundational concepts; and systematic review of the four MCAT test sections.

The tuition is $1,250. Students are responsible for acquiring the 2016 edition of The Official Guide to the MCAT® Exam (Bundled) from aamc.org and the Examkrackers Complete MCAT Study Package (9th ed.), available through examkrackers.com.
