    I started doing the EK verbal (from the thin book with the 30 min exams) and the raw scores in the back don't correlate with the amount of questions. It states that Raw 23 -> 15, 22 ->14...etc. How does this apply to the 30 minute exams with 21 questions each?


    Also...what is the amount of questions one can get wrong on the real MCAT Verbal to get 10+ score?


    Thanks

    You can't get above 13 on the EK 30-min verbal tests. The upper end of the verbal scale on the real MCAT is really tight, so I don't think EK wants to make those sort of predictions. Those scores don't count for anything, so just do them for practice if you need it and don't worry about the scale.

    When practicing verbal, do you really follow the plan outlined in ek verbal lecture 4. After you take a timed test, do you really come back to it two days later, and then again two days after that. When do you go through the explanations?

    I don't understand how after going back to the passages will change anything since you have already taken the test two days earlier. The lecture 2 method doesn't seem that it would help raise your score in the end.

    Is this EK method really helping in the end? I don't want to waste any time and just wanted to make sure that this technique is worth the time.

    Thanks,
