ANY ADVICE? I'M TRYING TO STUDY FOR THE AUGUST MCAT AFTER GETTING A 29 ON MY APRIL. My Acchilles heel is...you guessed it...verbal. I took the Kaplan, and it helped to kick up my science scores to 11's and 12's. But how can I do better on the verbal. Right now, I'm reading the New Yorker, Economist, Time, etc. in hopes of improving reading speed and comprehension. Is that a good plan, aside from doing numerous practice tests? Also, I found that the REAL THING was more conceptual on the physical sciences; are there any good guide/study books that have study material which is reflective of what's on the AAMC, besides the Kaplan's 700-page monster book?
