Does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve your verbal scores? Mine is painfully low!
.. I thought the MCAT's passages go from easiest to the hardest in the default order(I remember reading somewhere on the AAMC sites). So automatically, you will get the hardest, most abstract passages in the end, although questions within those passages may differ in their difficulties.
Not always true. Although my last passage was the most difficult, a couple recent MCAT Club Threads post-test wrote that their most difficult VR passage was in the beginning (1st/2nd).
Sets of questions in the Verbal Reasoning section are presented in order from easiest to hardest. This order is based on the average difficulty of the questions in each set. However, a given set of questions contains both easier and more difficult sections.
The test on May 27th had the hard philosophy passage second. Definitely the hardest passage in the section.Not always true. Although my last passage was the most difficult, a couple recent MCAT Club Threads post-test wrote that their most difficult VR passage was in the beginning (1st/2nd).
Read read read read and read some more. I really think that the only way to improve verbal is to read... read magizines and newspapers... and take a humanities course with a heavy load of reading assignments. While you're reading... try to think of questions someone might ask you to see if you understood what you've read. Most importantly though, take lots of practice verbal tests!
