hey, yeah I plan on loosely following the 3 month plan.Do you guys plan on following the 3 month schedule posted in the sticky thread?
Do you know where the best place would be to get my hands on some berkeley review books?
i'm finding it so hard to focus with christmas and new years looming. must be even harder abroad. isn't it freezing in london! oh well - good luck everyone! i've barely been studying - so busy with work. the BR books take a really long time to review - compared to EK.I'm in for 4/9 in London. Starting the 3 month plan tomorrow to allow for some missed days. Going to be a little more difficult studying while abroad, so definitely going to need this for motivation!
I thought I had it bad with my bday the next day! Let's hope we get a great bday present and join the 30+ clubI'm taking it on Apr 9 as well It's my birthday...sort of a sad birthday, lol. I am new to these forums.
I was planning on doing the 3-month thing. However I'm not sure about buying the BR books, since they are so expensive. (and they seem to go quickly on these forums ) I also just took a practice test (AAMC #6) and did much better than I expected, so I also am wondering if the 3-month thing might be a bit much for me as well (like overstudying). I want a really high mcat though bc my GPA is so horrible. ^^
I'm using TPR for verbal right now and all I've gathered thus far, is beware of using answer choices with definitive words like "only" "all" "always". I also circle any words/phrase that may give a clue of the author's tone, usually adjectives. I also circle any analogies because they usually ask about that. It's probably not much help, but that's my 2 cents for now. GL!Studying is going decent. Trying to do a full exam every week. The verbal section is what is killing me. Any tips?
I've taken the exam before but I'm focused this time around.
They really just focus on focusing on Extreme answer choices as opposed to moderate answer choices. The moderate choice will most likely be the answer, however you need to use that short strategy with other things and use it cautiouslyI'm using TPR for verbal right now and all I've gathered thus far, is beware of using answer choices with definitive words like "only" "all" "always".

Fortunately for me my bf took the mcat this past sept and still had all of his TBR books and resources. As for my verbal scores, they are definitely higher than ps and bs Definitely not the even distribution I'm looking for, but I somewhat expected that since I graduated with an english degree. I'm hoping my my science scores go up at least 2 pts and I'll be happy.I'm taking it this day too. How do you all afford all of this study material? I've taken the free AAMC test and a Kaplan diagnostic test and got the same score on each. Just finished my content studying. Anyone else getting higher verbal scores than PS and BS?
Also is anyone else having trouble accessing the Princeton Review practice test?
