The Khan Academy MCAT Collection now includes new study and guidance materials for the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section of the MCAT exam. Tutorials and practice passages have been added, as well as videos that offer guidance on how to approach studying for this section. With the addition of the Critical Analysis & Reasoning Skills Section, the Khan Academy MCAT Collection is now complete! It contains sample content from all four sections of the exam; the collection includes 1,100 videos and 3,000 review questions to help you study.

As you know, the MCAT exam consists of four multiple-choice sections. Three of the sections cover concepts in introductory-level biology, general and organic chemistry, physics, and first-semester biochemistry, psychology, and sociology. The fourth, the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section, tests your ability to comprehend, analyze, and reason about the material you have read.

You’ll recognize that the Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section is very similar to other verbal reasoning tests you have taken in the past. No prior content knowledge is required for you to be successful on this section of the exam. Everything that you need to answer the questions is found in the passages or questions themselves.

Like others who are preparing for the MCAT exam, you probably wonder how you will prepare for a section that doesn’t require you to study specific content.

The Khan Academy MCAT Collection can help get you started. The new Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills section includes:

  • Four overview videos that provide an explanation of what the section is and what it tests, as well as deep dives into the skills you’ll demonstrate and how they present themselves in the questions.
  • Five “worked example” videos that walk through example passages and questions to put all of the concepts learned in the overview videos together.
  • Thirty passages and associated questions for you to practice with on your own. 

As you prepare for the exam, remember that there isn’t a right or wrong way to do it.  Whether you study best on your own, in a group, or with a tutor, it is important to do what works best for you. If you are unsure where to start, we’ve developed a five-step guide on how to create a study plan to fit your own learning style and schedule. Putting together a plan will help keep you organized and on track for test day.
