    Hello I'm a new member and I was hoping to get advice about
    some MCAT prep materials. I have taken Kaplan before but my MCAT scores
    were not good. I need to improve my verbal score by 4-5 points, and my
    science scores 1-2 points.

    I heard good reviews about the Examkrackers AudioOsmosis CD's (I
    already have their book materials) and I was wondering if anyone else
    could tell me whether these CD's are worth it or not. What are the good
    and perhaps bad points of the CD's and did they help?

    Has anyone else used the MCAT AudioLearn CD's...are they good? Or if
    anyone could help compare the two, AudioOsmosis versus AudioLearn. And
    any additional advice/help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    well AO will not help you in verbal that is for sure. The only way to improve verbal is to practice passages (EK 101 is a great start point).
    As for sciences EK AO is a good supplement to their books. You can also use a search button on the forums to find out more about it. That topic has been discused milion times so you should be able to find out more and faster from the search.

    Actually I have to disagree. I really thought just listening to the AO Verbal section made me think about the verbal passages differently. It really helped me feel more confident in choosing answers in the otherwise jumbled mess that is Verbal. I highly recommed the CD's, but you shouldnt spend $200 on them, they are not worth that much. Just find a friend with them and burn or buy from someone who is selling them. I asked on SDN and found someone to sell them for $60! Im sure there are plenly of people on here trying to get rid of em, especially now that everyone has been accepted.

    AO is way better than Audiolearn which is seriously boring.
