A total of 27 hours of lessons and conversations on MCAT biochemistry from a full panel of Kaplan´s MCAT experts, with a 150-page downloadable workbook to follow along as you listen. From the makers of the number-one MCAT course, Kaplan´s MCAT Biochemistry Audio Review is designed to fit into times when you couldn´t otherwise study - whether on the road, at the gym, or just looking for a change of pace from reading a textbook. Each of the 12 chapters, which, combined, cover the full scope of MCAT biochemistry, is a multihour conversation with some of Kaplan´s best biochemistry minds, where they share their deep knowledge of the content, their experience with students, and all their most effective learning techniques as they go along. Their conversations, hosted by Jeffrey Koetje, MD, are structured and informative but also open and casual, almost as if they´re reviewing the material themselves and you´ve joined their study group. By the end of this audio course, you´ll hear their take on the best ways to learn and remember all the biochemistry (and much of the molecular biology) you need to know for the MCAT, including amino acids, plasma membranes, cell metabolism, and much more. You can listen to it on the go, follow along, and take notes with the MCAT Biochemistry Audio Workbook (included as digital download, but also available in print), or even integrate this into a larger course of study with Kaplan´s MCAT Complete 7-Book Subject Review - however you study, you´ll enjoy the fresh and memorable perspective on this important material that you´ll use on the MCAT, in medical school, and beyond.

In The Revenge of Geography, Robert D. Kaplan builds on the insights, discoveries, and theories of great geographers and geopolitical thinkers of the near and distant past to look back at critical pivots in history and then to look forward at the evolving global scene. Kaplan traces the history of the world´s hot spots by examining their climates, topographies, and proximities to other embattled lands. The Russian steppe´s pitiless climate and limited vegetation bred hard and cruel men bent on destruction, for example, while Nazi geopoliticians distorted geopolitics entirely, calculating that space on the globe used by the British Empire and the Soviet Union could be swallowed by a greater German homeland. Kaplan then applies the lessons learned to the present crises in Europe, Russia, China, the Indian subcontinent, Turkey, Iran, and the Arab Middle East. The result is a holistic interpretation of the next cycle of conflict throughout Eurasia. Remarkably, the future can be understood in the context of temperature, land allotment, and other physical certainties: China, able to feed only twenty-three percent of its people from land that is only seven percent arable, has sought energy, minerals, and metals from such brutal regimes as Burma, Iran, and Zimbabwe, putting it in moral conflict with the United States. Afghanistan´s porous borders will keep it the principal invasion route into India, and a vital rear base for Pakistan, India´s main enemy. Iran will exploit the advantage of being the only country that straddles both energy-producing areas of the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea. Finally, Kaplan posits that the United States might rue engaging in far-flung conflicts with Iraq and Afghanistan rather than tending to its direct neighbor Mexico, which is on the verge of becoming a semifailed state due to drug cartel carnage. A brilliant rebuttal to thinkers who suggest that globalism will trump geography, this indispensable work shows how 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Prichard.

The Perfect Score Project is an indispensable guide to acing the SAT - as well as the affecting story of a single mom’s quest to light a fire under her teenage son. It all began as an attempt by Debbie Stier to help her high-school age son, Ethan, who would shortly be studying for the SAT. Aware that Ethan was a typical teenager (i.e., completely uninterested in any test) and that a mind-boggling menu of test-prep options existed, she decided - on his behalf - to sample as many as she could to create the perfect SAT test-prep recipe. Debbie’s quest turned out to be an exercise in both hilarity and heartbreak as she took the SAT seven times in one year and in-between ´´went to school” on standardized testing. Here, she reveals why the SAT has become so important, the cottage industries it has spawned, what really works in preparing for the test and what is a waste of time. Both a toolbox of fresh tips and an amusing snapshot of parental love and wisdom colliding with teenage apathy, The Perfect Score Project rivets. In the audiobook, Debbie does it all: wrestles with Kaplan and Princeton Review, enrolls in Kumon, navigates khanacademy.org, meets regularly with a premier grammar coach, takes a battery of intelligence tests, and even cadges free lessons from the world’s most prestigious (and expensive) test prep company. Along the way she answers the questions that plague every test-prep rookie, including: ´´When do I start?”...”Do the brand-name test prep services really deliver?”...”Which should I go with: a tutor, an SAT class, or self study?”...”Does test location really matter?” … ´´How do I find the right tutor?”… ´´How do SAT scores affect merit aid?”... and ´´What’s the one thing I need to know?” The Perfect Score Project’s combination of charm, authority, and unexpected poignancy makes it one of the most compulsively listenable guides to SAT test prep ever 1.
