Re: Doing decent on the MCAT without ever having taken biolo

I haven't had a biology or science course in over 26 years and did the MCAT online sample questions 'science' section and did better than I thought, considering I never studied for the test, am in pre-nursing currently, and didn't know any of the material except for (a bit) of one question, recalled...

Re: RN to Physicians Assistant?
