Hey guys, I'm semi-new to SDN (I've had the account for x months but haven't used it to my full advantage) and am hoping that someone could probably shed me some light (of hope ! ). I'm taking my first go at the MCAT in the first week of August (yes fast approaching)! I'm taking a TPR course right now to prep for it. So far, I've been almost a month into my TPR course and honestly, I don't see much of an improvement in my scores Verbal really sucks the MOST; sometimes it is as bad as getting 1/7 right! At those times, I'm just thinking, what the hell did I get myself into ? Anyway, my questions are: for anyone who has taken TPR and seen an improvement in their scores on passages,etc how long does it take to notice this upward trend? Because I clearly haven't hit my stride yet and time is running short. Also, for the WS, any advice to add substance and more analysis to the prompt paragraphs? For VR, I am so used to reading something twice in order to get a handle on it and to do any types of analysis. When I see a VR passage my primary reaction is, what the hell?? and I get bogged down in the reading and just 'accepting' what the author is trying to say. Another issue I've noticed is that when we have to do the ICC's in the class sessions and we're told we have X min to do it, I panic. I know the generic advice of "work on accuracy not time first" "get the gist of the writing" "chunk the information, get the bottom line" etc but I was wondering if there have been late bloomers from the TPR sessions. Oh, one other thing, how do you guys 'review' when you're referring to content review? In university, 'review' to me means reading over the material but with the MCAT, that's hardly the case.
