SESSION OVERVIEW

What to expect


Here’s what a typical classroom course looks like from start to finish. Each session builds off the next, and the practice tests are sure to help you feel calm and confident come test day.

PCAT Strategies, Critical Reading Passages, Critical Reading Questions

After this session you will be able to describe the sections of the PCAT and their scoring systems; formulate a personal study calendar that includes all the necessary actions from now until Test Day; recall and implement the steps of Kaplan's question, answer choice, and computer-based test strategies; describe the format and timing of the Critical Reading section; and recall and implement the steps for reading strategically and classifying Critical Reading question types.

Cellular Biology, Metabolism and Enzymes, Evolution and Genetics

After this session you will be able to describe the format and timing of the Biological Processes section; describe the parts of a cell, including their origins and functions; explain the steps of mitosis and meiosis; describe the stages of embryonic development; explain the steps of cellular respiration and photosynthesis; defend the theory of evolution based on scientific principles; calculate individual and population genetics; and describe and contrast bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.

The Periodic Table, Electrons, Atomic Theory and Bonding, Chemical Reactions

After this session you will be able to describe the format and timing of the Chemical Processes section; interpret the periodic table and describe the properties of different types of elements; determine the products and rates of radioactive decay; utilize quantum numbers to determine electron configurations; identify molecular dipoles and intermolecular attractions; balance equations and calculate stoichiometric quantities and oxidation numbers; and calculate the energies related to phase changes and thermochemistry.

Structure and Bonding; Hybridization and Aromaticity; and Reactions and Functional Groups

After this session you will be able to assign and interpret IUPAC names of organic compounds; classify intramolecular bond types and apply them to molecular structures; determine the presence or absence of hybridization and aromaticity in a molecule; identify organic oxidation and reduction reagents and reactions; and determine the reactants, products and mechanisms for the reactions of alcohols and ethers, aldehydes and ketones, and carboxylic acids and their derivatives.

Math Strategies, Arithmetic, Algebra, Functions

After this session you will be able to describe the format and timing of the Quantitative Reasoning section; identify opportunities to apply Traditional Math, Picking Numbers, Backsolving, Educated Guessing, and Estimation to math problems; calculate basic math problems involving fractions, percentages, decimals, unit conversions, and logarithms; calculate algebra problems using expressions, equations, inequalities, and functions; and analyze the properties of common graphs and figures.

Microbiology, Digestive System, Circulatory System, Respiratory, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems

After this session you will be able to recall the structures and functions of the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems and apply your knowledge of those systems to scenarios involving nutrition, diseases, and drugs.

Equilibrium, Solutions, Acids and Bases, Kinetic Theory

After this session you will be able to calculate the properties of systems related to reaction and solution equilibriums; calculate measurements and colligative properties of solutions; contrast acid-base theories and calculate the strengths of acids and bases; calculate pH, pOH, pKa, and pKb values; describe titrations and calculate related values, including those of buffer systems; and calculate the properties of ideal and non-ideal gases.

Isomerism, Substitution and Elimination, Substitution and Addition

After this session you will be able to determine the properties of the different types of isomers; identify isomers of given molecules; determine the characteristics of substitution, elimination, and addition reactions; and evaluate reactions to determine their types and products.

Probability and Statistics, Precalculus, Calculus

After this session you will be able to calculate probabilities and statistics, including averages and variances; manipulate vectors using complex and imaginary numbers; calculate limits and use them to determine continuity; solve problems involving algebraic, exponential, and trigonometric functions; and calculate derivatives and integrals.

Endocrine System, Nervous System, Immune System, Excretory System

After this session you will be able to recall the structures and functions of the endocrine, nervous, immune, and excretory systems; apply your knowledge of the above systems to scenarios involving nutrition, diseases, and drugs; and identify tissue types based on microscopic and macroscopic images.

Spectroscopy and Lipids, Amino Acids, Proteins, DNA and RNA

After this session you will be able to predict and evaluate the results of infrared and NMR spectroscopy; identify the properties of lipids; assess the strengths and properties of organic acids and bases; recognize the characteristics of amino acids and proteins; recall the steps of replication, transcription, and translation; and differentiate among the types of genetic mutations.

Critical Reading Strategies Review, Additional Reading Strategies, The Writing Section, Test Day Strategies

After this session you will be able to apply Kaplan's strategies for reading passages and answering questions to a wide variety of passage sets; identify wrong answer types for Critical Reading questions; apply alternate strategies when running out of time; recall and implement the steps of Kaplan’s Writing section strategy; implement the strategies you have already learned to any question on the PCAT; and plan your study calendar appropriately so you know what to do from now until Test Day.
