I dunno about anyone else, but I think that "studying" for the Verbal section of the MCAT is rather ill-founded. I mean, if you know how to critically read and understand information and can draw conclusions (which should be a skill developed in college course work), you should do fine on the MCAT. Sure, I bought a verbal book so I can simulate the conditions of the exam, but I think that going to extremes of reading newspapers and other materials just as prep is not wise. Does anyone agree with me?? That's just my 2 cents.
