I am not going to do Gold Standard Verbal. Bad move?

    I am taking the MCAT on July 18th. I am going to be done with content review (EK books, EK 1001 org, EK 1001 bio) by June 1st. From then till July 18th I plan to take as many FL practice exams as possible (I have access to about 40). However, I don't want to waste my time with low quality verbal. Most people say GS verbal is low quality.

    Would everyone agree with this?

    I know that other people have found the GS practice tests helpful, but I personally did not. After scoring about 5 points lower on GS tests than on any others (and thinking the questions were frustrating and poorly worded), I decided to not use the 10 GS practice tests that I paid for and instead stuck with AAMC and Kaplan study materials. I ended up being very satisfied with that decision... I think it's a matter of prioritizing the materials that you feel are the most conducive to your own learning.
