About the Proton Guru Ladder

Our Philosophy - Climb


After each course up the subject ladder you will face comprehensive exams combining the knowledge from previous courses until you have slowly trained yourself to put it all together to face down the real exams!

We think this approach is more effective and less stressful than trying to frenetically learn from many different subject areas at one time.  



The courses include video lessons, reading, links to other free resources online if you need even more training, and numerous practice problems. The practice problems range from short ~10-question quizzes to comprehensive course quizzes (some over 200 questions) and the ultimately full-length practice exam.

If you would like to a course in the MCAT Ladder program, you can enroll, in the full MCAT Organic Chemistry course for free to see if you like it. Identically-formatted free PCAT Organic Chemistry and DAT Organic Chemistry course are also avalable. Subsequent courses have progressively more practice problems as you complete more subjects, but this short course gives you an idea of how the other courses are laid out.

Our Philosophy - Uplift

Our logo illustrates our inspiration for this program: for every MCAT course purchased we give a full scholarship to another student who may not otherwise be able to access an elite test-preparation training program like these. In this way people already climbing the ladder of success are helping the next group along the way. We believe in making education and the medical profession accessible to everyone! Current scholarship opportunities are updated below!
