    This might seem like an odd question, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the issue. I've completed the first 4 EK tests and have scored anywhere from 7-9 :(. My question is that I always seem to get the questions that I am uncertain (the ones in which I lack confidence in my answer) on wrong. I would likely be able to solve them if I had more time (I do all the tests under AAMC timing) by either using the 'going back' method or just having more time to comprehend each answer wrt to the question.
    Will practice help? because it seems every test I do the only ones I get wrong (~1.5 each passage) are the ones I am worried about as I answer them.

    Any suggestions?

    Don't get too discouraged.

    I've always been good at verbal (33 reading on the ACT, did over 95th percentile on the reading comp of a real LSAT--which is known for harder verbal than MCAT). I got a bunch wrong in the EK 1001 verbal, especially in the first 8 or so tests.

    There were more than a few questions where even after reading the solution, I disagreed with the "correct" answer.

    This book, while an excellent resource, has received similar criticism from a lot of people.

    Use it as a resource, but don’t let it discourage you.
