Hello,

I have finished about half of the EK101 Verbal book and have been consistently scoring 10s. I am hoping to improve my score before the test... some passages are so insanely convoluted that I don't even know what is going on in the passage. I was wondering what strategies you guys utilized in comprehending these difficult passages.

Also, I haven't had a chance to take any AAMC FLs yet. I wanted to know how the difficulties compare between the EK101 Verbal questions and the real questions on the AAMC FLs. I heard some people around the forums say that the EK101 Verbal questions are a bit tougher.

Thanks

For me, I tried to not get bogged down by the details and focused on grasping the main idea and author's opinion. In other words, I'd stick to my verbal strategy.

In terms of difficulty, some think it's harder, others easier. Overall, it's probably on par, but nothing prepares you for MCAT verbal as well as the AAMC FLs.
