Resource Abbreviation Key

by Med School Tutors on Jan 23, 2020 3:25:00 PM

To keep this outline as clear and legible as possible, we've abbreviated the myriad referenced resources as you see below throughout the sections:


MISC = Misc. resources
KHN = Khan Academy video
KHN/A = Khan Academy/AAMC collaborative video
BOU = Boundless
BOU/P = Boundless Psychology
BOU/S = Boundless Sociology
OPE = OpenStax
OPE/P = OpenStax Psychology
OPE/S = OpenStax Sociology
APA = American Psychological Association


NOTES:

1. If any of the above codes have three asterisks (***) following the code (e.g. KHN***), that means that we found that resource’s explanation to be most useful in understanding the corresponding concept.

2. The MCAT, and any resources mentioned in this outline — such as Examkrackers, Next Step, OpenStax, Kaplan, Princeton Review, Barron's, Khan Academy, Boundless, and the American Psychological Association — are owned by the trademark holders and are not affiliated with Med School Tutors LLC.
