The Princeton Review. The Princeton Review

Known across the globe for their test prep, The Princeton Review offers free MCAT practice tests to those of you hoping to knock this test out of the ballpark. You can search online for a live practice MCAT in your area or register for a practice test online if one is not offered. I searched in my surrounding area for an MCAT practice test to take in person, and found one within 20 minutes of my home.

Format: Online and In-Person

What's Included:

  • A timed format to mimic testing conditions
  • Two different tests: an MCAT practice test or diagnostic exam.
  • The MCAT Practice Test, which mimics the actual MCAT. All subjects are tested.
  • MCAT Diagnostic Exam, which is designed to assess your strengths and weaknesses. It contains enough questions to test your science content knowledge or your ability to work with different Verbal question types. The Verbal Diagnostic Exam also includes a Reading Comprehension test.

Kaplan Updated
Kaplan Test Prep

Kaplan, the largest test prep company in the world, also offers free MCAT practice tests along with tons of various courses and classes for free, too. I searched for a live practice test in my area, but was referred to the "MCAT Classroom Anywhere" practice test, which simply means that I can sign up, take it online in a real-time setting. Like The Princeton Review, Kaplan also offers free MCAT informational sessions, too. Classes like "MCAT 2015: Understanding the New MCAT" and an "MCAT Preview" class were offered for free, too.

Format: Live Online and In-Person

What's Included:

  • A timed format to mimic testing conditions
  • An MCAT preview course is included once you register for the free MCAT test. You'll be taken to your own personalized page where you can see what Kaplan offers for MCAT prep, and also take the free test.
