Explained very well made it relatable. Great lecturer explained very well and gave good examples.

Excellent MCAT lectures for any premed studying for the MCAT!!!
By Sophie D. on 04. June 2020 for Sensory Pathways – Sensory Processing (PSY, BIO)

I'm a visual learner and Dr Ahuja explains psychology and sociology very clearly and into layman terms. And I absolutely love the fact that the lectures follow the MCAT AAMC outline to the T. This takes out so much anxiety from me. I know that I'm covering everything needed on the MCAT with a highly qualified teacher and excellent production.

Easily understood

This was very clear and simple and extremely helpful thank you

Really Love Lecturio for content review and better understanding of content!

I use Altius for my MCAT course book, but learn better with watching videos. You guys line up pretty well with their content and it makes it easy to follow! I also love the examples that make it relatable.
