"The blueprint course was one of the biggest reasons I did so well on my MCAT exam. The comprehensive review tools and study plan made it easy for me to plan out an effective study plan that was tailored specifically to me and my schedule. The videos were very helpful in helping me review high yield content that I saw on test day. I definitely recommend this to anyone who knows they need a structured study plan!"

"Blueprint was truly worth it! I would highly recommend this course. I attribute much of my success on the MCAT to the strategies I learned during this course!"

"Blueprint MCAT prep course helped me increase my score from a 504 to a 511. That is a valuable 22% score increase.Thank you very much Blueprint! I have tried using many test prep materials and I must say from my experience that blueprint MCAT full length exams are the closest it gets to the actual MCAT. The video lectures are concise and very helpful. I would highly recommend the blueprint MCAT prep course for prospective MCAT takers."

"What drew me to blueprint was how comprehensive the course was. The analytics throughout the practice exams combined with the flexible course calendar was ideal for me as I was studying while working on my PhD...My score increased by 10 points after using the blueprint MCAT course and without a doubt I can say it is because of the tools they provided."

"I believe the office hours really set this online program apart from others. Phil was a great "tutor" and I truly believe he impacted my score for the better.”

"I just got my score back today, and I got a 517! Thank you so much for pairing me with Armin and being so amenable to me switching tutors in the beginning. He was really helpful in my studying process and played a large role in my progression with the MCAT. I’m really pleased with my score. From 505 to 517. I’ll take it.”

"Thank you for all the help. I especially appreciated the reasoning strategies as they helped to reduce my worry about the exam.”

"I would recommend NextStep to anyone looking to start studying or revamp their studying. Not only is their material great but the layout and individual schedule they make for you is amazing. I also got a tutor through them and he was able to help me figure out my weak areas and how to help me prepare quickly and effectively.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the best MCAT test prep course is vital to your success. Consider your own learning style, how long you have to prep, and your overall goals. The most important thing to look for when deciding on an MCAT test prep course is how representative it is. It’s no secret the official AAMC Practice Exams are essential to any MCAT study plan because the closer you can get to the real MCAT, the better you will perform. However, you will need to supplement your prep with other resources to get enough MCAT practice to reach your target score.

As the leader is representative test prep, Blueprint MCAT (formerly Next Step) constantly updates our MCAT prep material and interface every time the AAMC makes a change to ensure our students do their best and are using the most representative MCAT practice resources. Blueprint MCAT Self-Paced Course and Live Course students have seen results just as great as our MCAT tutoring students and vice versa. Ultimately, choosing the best MCAT prep course comes down to personal learning style and preference, but we know you’ll find the right course with Blueprint MCAT.
The AAMC recommends a student dedicate about 300 hours to MCAT test prep, but to get a top score you may need to spend as much as 500 hours prepping. This is usually spread out over 3-6 months. Once you have an MCAT test date in mind, evaluate your schedule to realistically gauge the time you can commit to MCAT practice. Whether it’s on your own with an online MCAT course, in an MCAT live class, or with a personal MCAT tutor, make sure your MCAT test prep isn’t rushed.
If you’re reading this, you’re already off to a great start! If you haven’t already, you should take a diagnostic MCAT practice test. This test will help establish your baseline MCAT score and show you what you already know so you can hit the ground running when you start your MCAT test prep.

Visit our MCAT resources page to access a free MCAT diagnostic test and other helpful prep tools included with a free account.

Afterward, create a free study schedule using our customizable online MCAT study planner. Your study plan will organize all of your MCAT practice, including content review, practice tests, practice question sets, and reviews.

Remember, everyone’s study schedule will look different. What works best for one student may not work for another. Find what works best for you and stick to it. Consistency is key when it comes to successful MCAT test prep.
