HPPLC MCAT Prep Workshop – starting soon!


Are you preparing to take the revised MCAT exam? Register for the Health Professions and Prelaw Center’s MCAT 2015 Prep Workshop to help you prepare to take the revised MCAT exam in spring or summer 2015.

HPPLC’s MCAT Prep Workshop has been re-designed to help prepare students to succeed on the MCAT 2015 Revised Exam.  We will use the recently-released Official Guide to the MCAT Exam (MCAT 2015), as the most authoritative resource regarding what content is expected to appear on the new exam.  The Kaplan MCAT Complete 7-Book Subject Review set will be used as well to guide review of important concepts.  The instructors for the course have thoroughly analyzed the guidelines provided by the AAMC on the foundational concepts to be tested in order to determine what skills students will need.  Each instructor will design his/her section of the course to help students develop the tools needed for success on the exam.  Emphasis will be placed on critical thinking and independent reasoning skills, as well as test-taking strategies.

Future of Human Biology

FHB’s main purpose is to give back to the community of Bloomington as well as the community of St. Jude’s Hospital.
