    Ok so i've decided that i'm not happy with my 78% composite score from the june test and is deciding to take the october test

    My scores for june is
    Verbal: 60%
    Reading Comp: 61%
    Biology: 72% (can't believe this! I felt like i knew every problem!)
    Chemistry: 62%
    Quantitative: 95%

    So for me i feel like the only improvement i can have left for october is verbal, reading comp and chemistry.

    I was wondering is there any recommendations for verbal and reading comprehension? i remember someone posted before about some GRE book or MCAT book's verbal section helped?

    Reading comp i don't know how to improve in this but just read more magazine or newspaper?

    And for chemistry anybody got a good PCAT test book that they recommend to study from i thought kaplan was too good on the G Chem part but not the O chem part, but maybe because i studied from the 2005 version, does anybody know if the new version covers more OCHEM? because i thought the june test pulled a curve ball when they threw in all those o chem problems.

    I would suggest the GRE book for vocab, but there is always the possibility those words will not appear on your exam.

    I got a 91 on the chem section. The 2006 version covers very little o-chem. They covered what I learned in maybe the first 2 weeks of orgo 1. I would suggest studying for your textbook - a lot of questions I had on my June exam, I learned in orgo 2.

    It sounds silly but a Princeton Review book on the old SAT helped me immensely on the analogies and sentence completions. Try the public library.

    Yes that is the book.

    And silly! You have a couple more months before the PCAT. Search Amazon for "eraser"
