I find TBR verbal passages longer and more difficult than EK, TPR and Kaplan. Is this just to me or to everyone? They seemed initially easy in the beginning but then their passages in actual "diagnostic tests" were more difficult for me

Is the real MCAT verbal as difficult as TBR verbal??

I think they're about the same difficulty as EK. Haven't tried the Kaplan tests yet this time, though.

Yes. I thought the real MCAT verbal was tougher than the AAMC questions, which is all I used when I prepared for the 1/29 test. By "tough" I don't mean ridiculously hard--just too vague.

TPR passages are harder than EK, but EK has more vague questions. I find both EK and TPR easier than TBR because TPR passages contain vivid points from Author and straight forward questions. But BR verbal has hard passages that make me to lose focus and vague questions that make me to read it twice. :eek::eek::eek::eek:

I dunno, I did a non -diagnostic in the TBR yesterday to prep for the full length today and TBR passages were pretty interesting-- easier to read for me. However, the questions were like wha...? ???? Like, you need to know information from "supplement reading" to get the correct answers. One question was relating the "rise of the cream until it sours" to the hierarchy and incompetence.
TPR today really killed me.. guess on all the questions :( lost focus and had no idea what the passages were talking about?! :beat: :help:
Verbal makes me :barf:

People usually say that BR passages are tough, but the questions are easy. Overall, BR passages aren't worth doing unless you're lacking in verbal material.
