The Berkeley Review's Online Course Program

Attend the top MCAT preparation program from wherever you study best. All lectures are taught LIVE in a small group setting. We take pride in helping students achieve their maximum score and have instructors who have been doing so since 1992.

Instructors

The core of our teachers are full-time instructors with our company who have been teaching MCAT subjects for over 20 years. Most are either professional teachers, have a Ph.D., have a M.D., or are candidates for their Ph.D., or M.D. Our instructors generally specialize in one or two subjects.

Classes

Classes are maxed out around 40 students, generally are two hours in length, and a week of instruction consists of four or five classes. For particularly difficult concepts, we offer supplemental lectures that present the material and ideas from an even more fundamental perspective.

Materials

The course includes: 1) TBR's full set of MCAT Review books, 2) additional individual MCAT-style passages are presented each class and answered under timed conditions, 3) Two sectional exams will be taken in-class, and 4) the course includes all 5 of TBR's Full Length Practice CBT's.

1-on-1

Office hours are posted during the first two weeks of class and updated on a regular basis. Over the course of the program, we offer approximately 300-400 office hours, and they are held in either small group settings or in a one-on-one setting with the instructor.

Live Lectures

We try to provide a minimum of 50 two-hour lectures: twelve lectures in biology, twelve in general chemistry, nine in physics, six in organic chemistry, six in reasoning skills, four in psychology and sociology, and three additional supplementary lectures, for a total over 100 in-class lecture hours.

Scores

The average MCAT scores of students in The Berkeley Review stand well above the national average. We work with each of our students to ensure they have the opportunity to achieve their maximum score. Our curriculum is designed to raise your score on all sections of the MCAT.

Online Course Description

About the course

The course is designed to review all the material on the MCAT from a pragmatic perspective. Harder subjects are covered in more detail across multiple lectures. Not only will you learn the fundamental scientific principles necessary for the MCAT, but you will explore how to best approach questions using advanced, MCAT specific, test taking strategies that are required for a top score. Between the lectures, assigned reading, assigned problem sets, quizzes, office hours, and full length tests, we want our students to fully commit to the course and make sure to always ask for help when needed!

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no difference besides a physical location. The core group of teachers and curriculum is the same. The in-person course (post-COVID) will be a great place to regain that person-to-person contact and traditional classroom learning style. The added bonus of the in-person classroom is access to the learning center for any late night study-holics. The downside to the in-person course is you will pay a slightly higher tuition (rent isn’t free) and will have some sort of commute to the center.

Eventually, but not until you have taken the MCAT and succeeded. 

Talk to one of our coordinators for more information on score guarantees.

Let the course coordinator know and feel free to attend the same lecture being offered at an alternate class time.

Payment plans are available upon request. You will need to contact an administrator and set up a payment schedule. Please call (510) 631-0663. Please note the course price is fixed and late payments are subject to late payment penalties.
