This MCAT Psychology and Sociology book provides a detailed and thorough review of psychology and sociology topics tested on the MCAT. The content of this review book is organized into fifteen knowledge areas and is centered around all relevant topics, concepts and psychological theories tested on the MCAT to provide test-takers with targeted material that covers foundational principles and theories of the "Psychological, Social and Biological Foundations of Behavior" section of the MCAT.
This book provides a detailed and through review of Psychology and Sociology topics tested on the new MCAT. The content covers foundational principles and theories necessary to answer related questions on the Psychological, Social and Biological Foundations of Behavior section of the MCAT. By reading these review chapters thoroughly, you will learn important psychology, sociology and begavioral sciences concepts and the relationships between them.Scoring well on the MCAT is extremely important for admission into medical school. To achieve a high MCAT score, you need to develop skills to properly apply the knowledge you have and quickly choose the correct answer. Understanding key concepts, having the ability to extract information from the passages and distinquishing between similar answer choices is more valuable than simply memorizing terms.
The purpose of this book is to help examinees that will be sitting for the new MCAT test format as from Spring 2015 to prepare for the sections on Social and Behavioral Sciences which encompass psychological, social, and biological foundations of behavior. The questions in the new sections are based on knowledge of important introductory psychology and sociology concepts that relate to mental processes and behavior. The new changes expect acquisition of information and skills in areas that were previously not tested on MCAT. There is also the realization that the 21st Century medical student and doctor need to be knowledgeable not only about facts related to disease, but equally important, about the psycho-social environment that interacts with the individual patient to produce or mitigate disease. The book is titled "MCAT Pioneers" because we are happy and proud to be pioneers in utilizing a biopsycho-social (BPS) lens to assist MCAT applicants in understanding and integrating the concept of health and disease as a product of the inter-play among biological (e.g., genetic/epigenetic, molecular, cellular and hormonal), psychological (e.g., our thoughts, perceptions, attitudes, reactions and behaviors) and social (e.g., institutional, cultural, political and socio-economic) environments. This yields a comprehensive and unified multi-factorial approach to health and disease thus preparing the future medical student to draw on this understanding in his/her interactions with and management of patients within a context rather than in isolation. Above all, the book will aid examines who aim to achieve high scores in the new MCAT format.
