Demerits Of Preparing From MCAT Prep Books
There are a number of other methods of preparation that are more interesting and motivating. MCAT prep books lag behind in grasping the attention of the students like the other methods can. It is dull and boring to study from MCAT prep books.
MCAT prep books require a lot of maintenance. Since an MCAT book is huge, it is cumbersome to handle and carry it. It can get torn with overuse, thus it is very difficult to manage it.
MCAT prep books can be updated only when the next edition is published. Until then no changes can be added to them. Publishing books is a time bound process and cannot be done as quickly as the changes may occur. That is why MCAT prep books can remain outdated till the time the next edition is not printed.
An MCAT book does not give any feedback. This method of study lacks communication, which is very important in the process of teaching and learning.
