    EK 101 Verbal or Ek 101 CARS?

    Hi! I was reading Nymeria's MCAT study schedule and saw that she recommended the EK 101 Verbal. In other forums I've seen people saying that the new EK101 CARS is bad, and that the old EK 101 Verbal is better. Currently EK sells EK 101 Verbal on their website, but does anyone know if they've...

    AAMC CARS Q-Pack #1

    Hey all. So I just did the first Q pack for CARs from AAMC. I got a 71% average accuracy, which for the first Q pack is decent I think(??). But, my question is, how can I maximize my time when reviewing the answers I got wrong? Its not like C/P where I can review a concept and go "oh, I needed...

    Thoughts on Nextstep CARS 108

    Just wanted to find out what people think of this book ? Anyone who has used NextStep 108 and subsequently written the MCAT or can compare to the 2 available AAMC practice tests? Personally, I find the passages too dense and the questions vague.. Score significantly higher on both TPR and EK...

    MCAT Verbal Dilemma

    Notoriously, verbal-type sections have been my weak point throughout standardized testing. I read slow. I second guess myself. Main idea points sound enticing and I always take the bite on a wrong answer choice. My MCAT timeline is 2 years away. The verbal is not something you can increase in...
