Customer Reviews

Seems to be a great book in helping to study,review and prepare for the MCAT test that my son will ill soon be taking.
Brigit
Many of the answer keys are incorrect, or inconsistent (will indicate A is answer, but then explain why B is the only correct one), which is very frustrating.

The passages for the most part are very interesting, compared to most verbal passages I have seen in the real MCAT and other prep companies.

This is a good book for practice. However I think this book can be misleading at times. For those studying for the MCAT, use this book to practice passages and more less of actually taking a test one by one. I would say use this book to practice a few passages a day. The questions are very challenging and will you get you thinking and focused for the real thing. I would say this can be easier than the real MCAT or AAMC verbal, but it is harder at times as well. So I guess we can say it balances out.

The passages for the most part are very interesting, compared to most verbal passages I have seen in the real MCAT and other prep companies. This book lacked humanity and philosophy passages, which is almost always present on the real MCAT. Although the questions are extremely difficult, some of the questions all over the book have more than one right answer, and will keep you guessing. So this book does have it's mistakes.

I would not actually score each practice verbal test based on the scale given in the back of the book. In my opinion I think some tests are harder than others in the book. Because of this I think that one and only scale in the back of the book should not be representative of each test in this book. If each test were graded accordingly, based on a pool of people getting certain questions right and wrong, then we would know each real score for each test. A lot of people I know, including myself, had verbal scores which fluctuated from this book.

As I mentioned before, use this book as practice. See which questions you got right and wrong, and why and how it lead you to the answer. Just use this book to polish your test-taking technique for the Verbal section, whatever technique it might be.

I give this book a 3.7 rating, which rounds up to 4. I do recommend this book, but with caution.

This book let me really think what are the possible type of questions on the MCAT. I scored highest among all other scores on my Verbal Reasoning. This book really gives you lots of practice before the actual exam.

I took the MCAT just yesterday. In retrospect, one thing I really would not recommend to other people preparing for MCAT is using this book. This is a completely objective opinion. I have done almost all of the book, solved almost all the problems. I found that while the difficulty level of the questions themselves could be definitely tricky and challenging. In that aspect, this book is acceptable. However, the problem with this book is that the types of the passages and especially the difficulty level of the passages are NOWHERE similar to the actual MCAT or the AAMC practice tests online. I can confidently say that the MCAT passages, as well as the AAMC pratice tests' passages were definitely more challenging. Frankly, I really have to say this book screwed me over the verbal, because it really made me to think that the passages were as easy as it seemed- but they really weren't. Sorry for everyone taking the MCAT, but the verbal section is HARD. Don't have false hopes that it will have a few give away passages. EVERY SINGLE PASSAGE is equally difficult, and definitely more difficult that I'd say 80% of all the passages in this book. Examkrackers are good with practicing concepts, but only ones really worth getting and that I would recommend is the biology book, and maybe the physics book. Organic chemistry is way too easy... WAY to easy, and general chem and physics are unecessarily way more difficult and have some obscure topics you won't have to bother for the MCATs.

If you are preparing for MCAT, I'd rather purchase ALL of the AAMC practice exams, which is available online for a year, and keep practicing those than to purchase all of examkracker books like me and waste nearly a month doing all the problems. AH, one more thing. There are typos here and there in examkracker books... it looked very unprofessional to me. Buy them and use them at your own risk.

It's hard to replicate the actual MCAT but I was happy with the book and thought it offered great practice opportunity. No real issues but sometimes I felt like the questions/correct answers weren't always extremely well done...I remember thinking I could have convinced the author to change a couple answers, etc...but I was in cram mode and just kept moving on to the next one, so maybe I'm wrong on that. The passages were about right though and the important thing is that you practice your critical reading.

This was my only source of strict verbal practice so I can't compare it to another similar product. It didn't seem like there was much else on the market, but don't forget you can probably do some practice with the verbal passages from a GRE practice book, for example...something to look into if you have time. Anyway I was happy with my score and I think this book helped!

Just received the 101 MCAT passages about 3 weeks ago. So far I have no complaints. There are some minor errors throughout the book, but these need to be overlooked as I can already tell this is an incredibly helpful resource. For someone who has taken the MCAT once already, I believe the passages and questions do a great job a mimicking the real thing. I would go as far to say that should is a MUST for anyone who is only scoring in the 8-10 range, and looking to hit the 11-12 mark consistently.
