MCAT Question of the Week! Immunology

Great work on this week's MCAT question focused on Immunology! Stay tuned next week for a special holiday themed question! Both the humoral response and the cellular response are specific immune responses which eliminates (A). Choice (B) is the correct answer! The humoral response is directed against antigens that have not yet entered body cells, while the cellular response is directed against pathogens that have entered body cells. Choice (C) is incorrect, because both the humoral response and the cellular response result in the formation of memory cells. Choice (D) is false, since the humoral response involves the production of antibodies. [cf]skyword_tracking_tag[/cf] ...read more

Thinking About MCAT Science With Adam: E01 – Respiration

Come join us with MCAT Expert Adam Grey as he introduces how to relate MCAT Science to everyday life!
Like a lot of people in the world of med school admissions, I think about MCAT science a lot. Seeing the world through this lens is vital to becoming a successful medical student and physician, and it helps to maximize your MCAT score as well.
That's why I'm pleased to announce the first episode of "Thinking About MCAT Science," an web series about seeing echoes of the MCAT in our everyday lives.  Each video will be very short (no more than 2 minutes long), so the series should be a very quick-hit, low-commitment way to give yourself that extra edge on Test Day.  And, just like this blog, the content will be absolutely free.
We'll be releasing a new video every few weeks, and we have some great plans in store as the series continues.  So go check it out!  Make sure you like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or subscribe to this blog or our YouTube channel (KaplanMCAT) to see more videos as they're released.
