# If you took the SAT Verbal section today, do you think you would get an 800?

I know the two formats are somewhat different, but after practicing for MCAT passages, how well do you think you would do if you took SAT verbal again?

Yeah same. I forgot the formula for surface area! lol

Probably not. Isn't the SAT verbal based on memorizing tons of vocab?

Maybe not on the SAT because of the vocab, but I bet the ACT reading would be so easy now.

I meant right now, not when I was taking the SATs (I knew it back then).

i'd prolly get close to it, studying for mcat verbal really helps

You know how SAT is arranged in order from easiest questions to most difficult? And how SAT verbal has a few straight-up vocab questions, a few "do you know what this word means in context" questions, and then the rest are "main idea" questions?

I feel like if you take the most difficult/ambiguous questions of that third category, you get the MCAT verbal section.

I got 800 on SAT verbal, and I'm sure I could do it again, but I'm hanging around 10's on MCAT verbal. :/ So despite some overlap, I'd say it's definitely different...
