The PCAT changed dramatically in 2016. The test is no longer about just memorizing science facts; the new PCAT primarily tests your ability to reason through science passages and quantitative problems. That’s why preparing for the PCAT has changed as well. Students shouldn’t prep by trying to guess what questions will be on the test – they must learn how to reason through challenging scientific, quantitative and mathematical situations – the skills you’ll need in pharmacy school.

Next Step built our PCAT prep course completely from the ground up based on the 2016 testing cycle and is revised continuously – as opposed to competitors who have been re-using the same materials for years.

Hear what our students are saying about the course:

Personalized PCAT Preparation

At Next Step, we understand that every PCAT student is different. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to PCAT prep, which is why we include strong personalization with our online course. To begin, you will answer a few simple questions about you and your prep, and our algorithm will generate a day-by-day study plan just for you.

Study Plan & Support:

  • An easy to follow Study Plan. Whether you’re preparing for the exam in 1-month, 2-months, or 3-months, we have you covered with an exclusive study plan generator to customize a PCAT study schedule that fits your unique needs. This day-to-day schedule will help you to focus on the important things and stay on track with your PCAT prep, setting you up for success on test day.

Live PCAT Office Hours:

Our self-paced PCAT course provides you with all the study material you need to succeed, but sometimes you need a little more. That’s where our live office hours and strategy sessions come in:

  • Scheduled review sessions to reinforce content knowledge. Sessions will cover a variety of topics to supplement what is being learned in the lesson videos and reinforce the skills being introduced
  • Open Q&A sessions. Students can come to these office hours sessions with any questions they may have about the exam, the materials, etc.
  • Work with our expert instructors – not junior TAs. Bryan and Sophia actively lead every office hour session – you never work with a re-trained SAT instructor or a junior instructor
