Never taken a college sociology course? Or maybe you have (any psych or soc majors here?) but are wondering what parts of this wide field of study are actually MCAT-testable?
Either way, Brainscape is here to help! Newly augmented and reorganized to provide more thorough coverage, our sociology cards have been calibrated against the MCAT outline to ensure that topics don’t slip through the cracks. From tons of questions about the demographic transition model to cards about status, roles, and groups, we thoroughly cover the topics that are tested without wasting your time on what isn’t.
Now with dozens of flashcards on sociological experimental methods, from survey design (and bias!) to ecological studies and much more.
