    don't do both. i tried. i got straight 12s with kaplan and 10 on the real thing but now i do EK verbal and my scores are much worse because i'm using kaplan strategy. just pick one of them and stick to it. don't cross contaminate by mixing the strategies. they each make tests i believe so their strategies work. i believe either one with some practice can help you on the real mcat as the verbal section on the mcat is neither EK or kaplan written.

    No one can really tell you if your score will go up. I would continue with the EK method, and continue to look over the questions you got wrong.
