Customer Reviews

The answers that are given are absolutely confusing, and sometimes are contradicting.

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.

This book includes many many practice passages for you to do. I think that is the key to scoring well on verbal is to practice a lot. The MCAT does not really test how good at "verbal reasoning" you are, but just how good you are at deciphering the convoluted questions they throw at you. It's kind of like having a crazy, passive-aggressive roommate that decides to get pissed off at random things, but you just have to be around them a while to learn how to deal with them. Practice makes perfect!

Using this book worked for me because I was able to improve my score from a 9 to an 11 in the course of using this book. I scored an 11 in verbal on the actual MCAT.

I took the first exam. It gave 18 answers to a 17 answer exam. Then it tried to convince me that if something permeates a landscape, its not present in that landscape. The only way this book helps train you for the MCATs is in training you to pick out bad rationales.

Cons: Several typos, the answer keys at the start of each explanation section don't always agree with the answer indicated as correct in the actual explanation section, the answers indicated as correct are not always well supported (the questions on the real MCAT practice tests are much more fair)

Pros: Tons of practice, challenging, decent price

Overall, yes it is good practice and should improve your chances of succeeding on the real exam, and for $25 its probably a good investment towards your future

So I believe practice is one of the more important things with Verbal, so the amount you get in this book is great. However, there are definitely a lot of mistakes in the book (typos, and more than one correct answers). I don't quite follow some of them logic used to describe the right answers, and I'm pretty sure some times they make too large of a leap. It also doesn't have many humanities passages which are definitely on the exam.

I picked this up along with your verbal strategies and I went from 7-8's to 10's and 11's. The biggest thing for me was getting flustered worrying about time. When you pointed out that people spend 80% of there time answering questions and only 20% reading, that allowed me to actually take time to comprehend the passage before tackling the questions and it helped substantially.

And these passages are much more similar to official AAMC questions than kaplan's.
