Mastery of prerequisite knowledge is important not only for academic success in your health professions program, but also for attaining a competitive standardized test score, required by most programs as part of your application.
We advise all students to take the exams when you are MOST prepared. The goal is to take the test once and that timeline may be different from your classmates. It can depend on your progress for your program’s pre-requisites as well as when you plan to apply.
We generally recommend studying for the admissions test for about 3-4 months and treating it like a 3-4 credit course. Some students self-study while others utilize a structured prep course. There is no right or wrong. Choose a method that works for you.
