2020 MCAT Test Review Course9:00am
Saturday, January 25th, 2020
09:00 AM - 01:00 PM
Storrs Campus TBAThe UConn MCAT Test Review Course is custom designed for our students taking the MCAT in 2020 or 2021. It will take place on Saturdays during the Spring semester so as not to interfere with classes and is intended to properly review the topics and test-taking strategies emphasized on these exams. We also place a heavy emphasis on coaching students through questions and practice exams included with the course to build familiarity and confidence with the exam format.
For students taking the test in 2020, the course will help frame your studying and practice. Many students who have the coursework already but plan on taking it later will also find the class useful for keeping current on the material and framing future preparation.
UConn instructors for these classes are all area experts.
