Reviewer Comments:

This extensive, creative commons licensed online course was created by John Wetzel to provide resources for students preparing for the MCAT, the Medical College Admissions Test. Portions of this resource could easily be used in any upper-level, IB, or AP science course in physics, chemistry, organic chemistry or biology, although to use the resource to its full advantage, it is advantageous to engage in the spiraled instruction as designed. The WikiPremed MCAT Course consists of twenty modules. Each module contains videos, goals and suggested assignments for each concept within that particular module. With free registration, learners can also use a simple checkbox system to track their progress. Even without logging in, all materials are freely available, although the printed publications referenced in the syllabus may refer to accessible print-outs from the site, the fairly-priced MCAT Bundle available for purchase, or reading assignments and practice items from either ExamKrackers or Berkeley Review materials. Each section contains instruction, review, assessments, supplemental links, as well as tips and hints to to ensure maximum educational value from each module.
