    I think verbal on EK16 mini mcat is same level of difficulty as those in EK101.

    To be honest, I don't think it's good representation for combined material. PS only tests physics on both passages for the first half of the book and general chemistry for the second half of the book. Same with BS (biology/organic).

    I am in a similar boat. I just purchased EK's 16 mini-mcats and I'm wondering how to gauge my timing. I never seem to finish these sections on time. Would you say this indicates that I would not be able to finish the AAMC sections on time, as well? Or does the difficult of these sections make the 20 minute time limits unrealistic?

    It's just more practice. Take it for what it is.

    So do you recommend timing myself in these sections and basing my performance on the timed scores, or disregarding the timing all together?

    Always do practice material under timed conditions. Don't bother trying to figure out how it converts to 9,10,11,etc.
