    Hey guys.. I am just curious, how does the 7th edition verbal & math book from EK differ from the 6th edition? does it specifically tell you how to approach the CBT test? i have the old 6th edition and I am comtemplating on getting the 7th edition if it is any different.

    thanks

    this is a common mistake many ppl make. they think that the newest addition books will be better for the CBT. the mcat tests the same material every year(except for rare occasions). the only thing that ever changes in about 99% of mcat review books is errors from previous editions. search the threads ull find alot about this.

    I think it's safe to say not much would change in terms of strategy. I'm sure EK advises NOT using highlighting on the CBT. The only difference may be with regards to timing, since you have less time per question on the CBT.

    One thing I've done with EK101 is to "split" the old 85 minute exams to better represent the CBT's length. Of course you also have to adjust the grading scale accordingly.
