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.

Verbal was my weak point for this test. In the end it all comes down to doing many (and I mean many) passages and developing your own technique for tackling this section. Many study material companies claim to know a secret but there is no secret, you just have to keep doing the verbal passages. This book offers good examples of verbal passages, especially compared to Kaplan whose passages tend to be on the shorter side. Definitely worth the buy if verbal is a weak point of yours.

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.

This book has line numbers and references line numbers, while the real MCAT doesn't. In my opinion, many of the questions purposefully mislead you into choosing the incorrect answer. Personally, working through 80% of this book didn't help me in the least.
