ALL NEW LIVE ONLINE
MCAT PREP IS HERE
Learn with expert teachers—picked for their extensive knowledge and high rating among students—wherever you learn best. And now, with our revamped online MCAT prep course, your higher score has never been closer.
MEET YOUR PERSONALIZED STUDY PLAN
Tell us how many hours and which days per week you can commit to prepping, and we’ll tell you what to study and when. The content that raises your score the most is always prioritized.
SKIP WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW
Test your content knowledge with placement quizzes before each lesson. If you ace the quiz, you can skip that unit altogether—so you can maximize your time and focus on what you need to learn. It’s the fastest way to your higher score.
IMAGINE 13 POINTS ADDED TO YOUR SCORE
When you prep with us, you don't have to imagine. Students who put in the work raise their score by 13 points or more. And it's no surprise, because all our MCAT prep is personalized to you and packed with exam-like practice resources—so you'll study just what you need, with an accurate picture of test day. Find out how we can add 13 points to your MCAT score—and how crucial those points can be.
MASTER CONCEPTS WITH INNOVATIVE PREP TOOLS
We’re going where no MCAT prep has gone before. In partnership with Librarium, the world’s first virtual reality study aid, Kaplan is making MCAT memorization more effective (and more fun). Get ready to quiz yourself on high-yield topics in virtual reality. Meta Quest 2 headset is required for this feature.
OUR MCAT PRACTICE EXAMS ARE SO REALISTIC MOST TEST TAKERS COULDN’T TELL THE DIFFERENCE
No, you’re not imagining it. Our MCAT practice tests mimic the actual exam. In fact, past MCAT exam test takers rated Kaplan's practice questions just as similar to the actual MCAT exam as official practice questions. How did we replicate the MCAT exam testing experience? We conducted rigorous psychometric field testing with Kaplan students, and used our findings to create the most realistic MCAT practice tests possible. It takes 20+ MCAT exam experts more than 2,000 hours to produce one new Kaplan practice test. Prep with confidence using realistic exams and know just what to expect on test day.

You will also cover high-yield science lessons on VSEPR theory and the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve.
CARS: Distill by Interrogation
This CARS session will focus on the Interrogation approach to Distilling CARS passages. You will work through several CARS passages to learn when the Interrogation approach is the best choice and how to leverage an interrogated passage when attacking CARS questions.
Data Distributions on the MCAT
This session will cover the statistical analysis necessary to answer Skill 4 (Data Analysis) questions on the MCAT. You will work through a selection of experiment-based passages designed to illuminate statistical concepts such as data distributions and measures of central tendency.
