Podcast Review

Jack Westin is revolutionary - Before we discovered Jack, we spent a tremendous amount of time and energy struggling to get through a single MCAT CARS passage. Over time, we had built bad habits including going back to the passage for each question and failing to grasp the main idea. After speaking with Jack, we not only learned to break negative habits, but we began to build a positive mindset to our approach to MCAT CARS. Believe it or not, we began to put ourselves in the authors' shoes and genuinely began enjoying reading, what others may consider, extremely dull, boring passages. We would highly recommend listening to this podcast, and similar to us, you too will learn to enjoy doing passages just like we did!

P.S. Jack, you are a blast!
