    MCAT:
    I chose not to take a prep class as I wanted to save the money and I was pretty sure I could be self-motivated. I used the ExamKrackers complete set and followed their online timeline (http://examkrackers.com/mcat/MCAT-HomeStudy.aspx) and actually did the ten weeks twice. I had a spreadsheet with what I was going to accomplish each week and kept a huge binder of all my practice test results and notes and everything. The highest I scored on a practice was 35.. and then surprise, 36 on the real thing!
