PreMed/MCAT:

Douchy's Biology PodcastDouchy’s Biology Podcast – Produced by a secondary school teacher in Australia for the equivalent of AP Biology.  The content changes and is updated every semester based on the class he’s teaching.  They make a great review for people who have taken Biology in the past, but need a refresher.  I first heard of him during a BBC interview about e-learning.  BONUS: he takes listener questions and answers them on the podcast.

Exam Krackers MCATExam Krackers MCAT Books – Concise and to the point.  Won’t teach you everything you need to know, but a good guide to what’s more important to know and review for the MCAT.  They were recommended by the PreMed Adviser at UML.  The Husband also tried a few episodes of the Audio Osmosis, but didn’t particularly care for it.

MCAT Question A DayMCAT Question A Day – The Husband went here every day for 18 months.  Sometimes the answers were wrong (about 1 in 15) and the interface was terrible, but most often the questions made you think in the way the MCAT writers intended.  The site has been spruced up in the past year (though I can’t speak for or against the [improved?] accuracy of the answers).
