    Hi Guys,

    I plan on retake the PCAT . I can self-study other parts, but I didn't know how to study for Verbal ABility. Besides Dr. Collins vocab, I wonder if studying GREs, SAT vocabs would help? I feel like the GRE or SAT vocab for reading or literature. Anyone has any way to study for VA?

    IMO you either know it or you don't for the most part. But practice questions can't hurt

    I personally learned the types of questions that they may give (can be gotten from practice tests) and then I studied off the top 200 GRE words and made them into flash cards. Those two things helped me get a 99 in that section.

    all I used was a Kaplan book to get practice tests and to learn test type wording and questions. then I just studied my 200 GRE flashcards I made.

    Hey I'm selling my Dr. Collins 2012 w/updates and the PCAT destroyer as a package for $150. I bought it off a friend for 230 and never ended up using it (the school I have an interview for doesn't require it). So it's in brand new condition.
    Message me if anyone wants!
