    Not really a topic, more of a question...

    I really enjoy leisure reading, as well as reading textbooks, articles and other assignments for class. However, on my practice sections, my CARS scores are so low. Do you think this is more of a comprehension issue? Or lack of practice? I feel like I do not have a "given talent" for CARS/VR like some do :(

    @frosted_flake thanks for your post! I'll write a blog on this soon! Reading for the MCAT is very different than how you should read for leisure. This ultimately comes down to knowing what to look for: how to find big points and use those points to answer the questions. I also think a big factor to reading for the MCAT is confidence. If you are not confident in your abilities, you'll always make more mistakes. You can improve your confidence by reading often. But what's especially important is building a consistent approach that you use for reading and answering questions.

    A majority of premeds need to practice and prepare themselves prior to taking this or any other standardized exam. You definitely need skills to do well but it's not something you cannot gain over practice and time. My students who put in the time and effort always do better.

    I am interested in enrolling in you CARS course, but the current classes don't fit my schedule? Are there any other classes available?

    @sofpink I will be having a new class each month for the rest of the year. I will be putting these dates up throughout the months. Please visit my site each month to see the new dates. Let me know if you have any other questions about this.
